Why I Make Games: we ask 21 of the world’s leading developers about what motivates them


Jenova Chen

Co-founder and game designer, Thatgamecompany

At some point in my life, I realised I had the heart of an artist. There are many experiences I want to communicate with the rest of the world. Among all the possible media I can use, videogames are the one I, and most people in my circle, grew up with.

I felt that by working in this industry, I could touch millions of people and contribute to the growth of this very young form of interactive entertainment and art.
