    Jenova Chen says, “Games need more mature content”

    Jenova Chen spoke at Develop today about thatgamecompany’s flOw and Flower but also that games need more mature content through emotional engagement not necessarily violence. Otherwise game titles will become nothing more than “toys”. “I never see that sense of thrill any more in today’s games,” he said. “Yes, today’s games are more real and satisfying but the underlining mechanics are no different from toys. But the human brain likes information – it’s like a sponge that sucks up information and wants more all the time. “Other pursuits are enjoyed by adults and not viewed as toys.
