In Hideo Kojima’s Twitter bio, he claims 70% of his body is made of movies. Presumably, the other 30% is comprised of other types of popular culture (and maybe some nanomachines.)
Compared to the Metal Gear series, which proudly wore its Hollywood action movie influences on its sleeve, his upcoming game Death Stranding seems wholly alien and unfamiliar.
After obsessively scrubbing through Death Stranding’s cryptic trailers, though, certain themes start to become apparent. The same could be said about staring at a Rorschach test too long, but in some cases, Kojima’s own social media acts as a paper trail to support our theories.
