At 29, with no experience in the field, he proved that there is no age to fight for a dream and, since then, he has been creating sensational games. His way of telling stories and his focus on gameplay and more on the player’s skill than on the attributes of the characters make his creations a reference for extremely challenging games”, Analyzes Marcelo Tavares, CEO and founder of Brasil Game Show, an avowed fan of Miyazaki’s work.
