webgame creator interview vol.1 Yoshio ISHII

an extra. What he wants to do before going on "HOSHI SAGA 3"

ISHII

What I want to do before going on the web game of "HOSHI SAGA" ...

HOSHINO

Before the web game!

ISHII

I have something that I want to do before "HOSHI SAGA 3".
Now I am personally in the middle of a fad for "GAINER".(laughs)

I want to make that with "HOSHI SAGA". photo

HOSHINO

You have mentioned a lot in your recent diaries.
I know you are so fascinated with it.

ISHII

It's insanely interesting.

HOSHINO

"GAINER" is hardware, isn't it?

ISHII

It's a device.
You can control it directly from FLASH.

You may search stars by turning a knob, or you can use a temperature sensor or a slope sensor.

HOSHINO

I see!
You have already finished it in your head.(laughs)

ISHII

That's true.(laughs)
A "Star searching device".
The device will be developed with a meter or some equipment.
The hardware must be lent out to players.
Otherwise, players should make their "GAINER" by themselves. It will cost about 20000yen(about $200) and I will provide the circuit diagram.

HOSHINO

(laughs)
Interesting.

ISHII

A star will appear if you hide an optical sensor.
If you tilt the device, then the screen will tilt and a star will pop out with a fun sound.

HOSHINO

I can't expect "HOSHI SAGA 3" for the time being.(laughs)

ISHII

Well, I will go on for "HOSHI SAGA 3".
