Q Entertainment game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi has stepped down from the studio's board of directors at the end of last month being to accept a new position as project professor at Keio University's Graduate School of Media Design. However, Mizuguchi is expected to continue assisting Q Entertainment as advisor in helping produce games. Mizuguchi's new role meanwhile should serve in further broadening his experience in digital media design, not to mention hopefully helping guide others in achieving the same.
Gamers who have enjoyed Mizuguchi's fine roster of titles like Rez, Space Channel 5, Lumines and Child of Eden will be most familiar with his penchant for using interactive sound as a core gameplay element. Mizuguchi helped found Q Entertainment alongside fellow ex-Sega staffers back in 2003. Mizuguchi's enthusiasm for digital media also led him to form Genki Rockets, an audiovisual media project which created the world's live 3D and full CG music video back in 2010.
