If you haven’t seen the Kojima Production’s “NEXT”, this is going to make no sense to you. I recommend starting here.
Last week a friend of mine sent me a link to Kojima’s countdown. I thought it looked pretty cool. Nice elusive piece of promotional material with no clear message about anything. Then I started noticing people trying to figure out what it meant. And when I say people I mean the majority of the hardcore gaming community and the heavy hitting blogs as well. It seemed like a little of an overkill, but I don’t know why. The Blizzard frost teaser for Diablo III didn’t feel over-hyped to me. For some reason, this did. So because of such, I re-imagined the Kojima countdown as what you see above.
And for those who don’t get the rest of the animation… here.
