Monster Games founder and designer Richard Garcia recently talked about his company. In an interview with LGN he mentions the 20 employees at Monster Games are working on a top-secret video game for Nintendo. They’ve worked on it for two years and are nearly finished. The process is so private the designers must darken their monitors when the bottled-water deliveryman enters the office!
Monster Games’ last game was 2006’s Wii launch title Excite Truck. With the company’s background making it a racing game developer above all, it’s now rumored Excite Truck 2 or possibly even F-Zero Wii might be their next Nintendo game.
“People will still pay for entertainment,” Garcia said, adding that profits throughout the video game industry are mostly on the rise, despite the national economic slump. He credits the steady increase to the growing public acceptance of video game playing as a “valid” form of entertainment. Nintendo’s recent widespread marketing of video games as “something for the whole family” with its latest “Wii” system has accelerated that acceptance, he said. — Via Neogaf
