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

Co-founder and CEO, Q Entertainment

We want to entertain people. We always try to convey feelings of peacefulness, happiness and optimism. We are strongly biased to music when we design games.

For instance, with the Lumines series we hope to evoke the sense of deeply diving into the music and visuals through quantisation effects mixed with puzzle gameplay. And the soundtrack of Lumines: Electronic Symphony is a tribute to our favourite electronic musicians.
