A tidy wee package of info-goodness for y’all on the flawed genius that is El-Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. First, I spoke to the game’s Creative Director, Sawaki Takeyasu:
“Much of the artistic inspiration came from deep within my own mind… which is a strange and wondrous place to explore. Very few games allow their creators to channel such abstraction into a finished project.”
As if that weren’t enough, I placated the gods of game criticism (all hail to your bloody majesties) with a little review action:
“First thing to say, if you’re of the large-man-in-the-sky-fearing persuasion, is don’t worry your pretty little head. Unlike my opening sentence, El-Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is not going to encourage any religious types to ban, burn or otherwise object to its content.”
