Katamari creator moving on

http://www.dyadin.com/gallery/gdcday4/gdcday4glennprincetakahashi.jpgKeita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy, recently told the BBC that he plans to leave the gaming industry to pursue a career in playground design: "In 10 years time, I am not going to be making games any more… I would like to create a playground for children… an undulating one, with bumps." Takahashi holds a degree in sculpture design and believes that children should spend more time playing in the physical (read: outside) world. His presence in the "virtual" world will be sorely missed.
