The hack and slash game developer has a much more casual day-to-day life than we were expecting.

Goichi Suda, perhaps better known by his tag name Suda51, is the creator and CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, a Japanese video game developer founded in 1998. The company was the main developer for titles such as Killer7, No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer Is Dead. Many of these titles topped the sales charts and they are widely love for their style and creative story-telling, which can be directly linked to the imagination of Suda51. Get a glimpse of this revered video game developer/CEO’s everyday life as he also chats about how his characters think and how he sees the world.

A lot of things that appear in Suda51’s normal life seems to make their way into his games. Hardcore fans will remember a batting cage fitting into the very first game he ever published.
