You have to wonder how certain game developers come up with some of the more intriguing concepts for games that get thrown around these days. Well, it seems that Majora’s Mask designer Yoshiaki Koizumi was inspired to create the critically acclaimed game due to a vivid daydream he had. Clearly an odd dream at that.
“Occasionally I also take images from dreams. Perhaps I am a little bit different from Mr Miyamoto in that sense.
“So if I could just give an example of one of those idle daydreams that turns into an idea for a game, I would look up at the moon and think about what would happen if the moon started to fall towards Earth. From that idea we moved onto the world in Majora’s Mask which is threatened by being destroyed by the moon.”
