Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi is celebrating the 19th anniversary of the game by announcing that he is working on a new game. Mr. Mizuguchi, who was also active as a designer of Tetris Effect, shared news about the next project from Studio Enhance.
In a tweet, Mizuguchi announced that the studio is “advancing” with a new game, “a whole new adventure with synesthesia.” The term refers to a neurological condition that unknowingly evokes another sensation in a sensory experience. For example, you can see the sounds and hear the colors.
Rez’s musical visualization has long been equated with a form of synesthesia.
Yup. Today is Rez’s Anniversary 😎 Released on November 22, 2001.
