Cliff Bleszinski is one of the great developers of the quarry of Epic Games, creators of Fortnite, Gears of War, Unreal and many others. I have signed successes in the 90s and 2000s that are, today, authentic classics of videogame history. Although he did not have much luck with his last solo adventure in the sector, it seems that Bleszinski has signed a successful break in the territory of musicals with HadesTown, to work he has co-produced. Of course, I said that “I will never forget that it was the games and the wonderful fans of my work that bought me this freedom and I will always be grateful for that.”
HadesTown swept the Tony Awards with 8 awards his recent entry on his Facebook page, Bleszinski explained that “I currently feel that my life is a role-playing game in which the world has generally opened up and I can explore and do what I want after working hard for 25 years in video games ” He did not hesitate to explain his adventure with HadesTown: “Alex Boinello, who plays Connor Murphy in the Tony winner ‘Dear Evan Hansen’, is a fan of my games. We became friends and asked if I wanted to be a co-producer / investor of the musical & quot ;.
According to Bleszinski, I fell in love with the work, so I decided to bet on the talent of Boinello and his team. The result? An absolute success: “I swept the Tony awards with 8 awards, including Best Musical (a very necessary victory for me after my video game studio was destroyed!)” He is already working on a new project with Michael Shannon or Audra McDonald called Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, to play by the American playwright Terrence McNally, with which he intends to add new successes on Broadway.
Bleszinski does not stop. for his biography. I have specified that “I had meetings with the great editors for my memoirs in New York and we are negotiating an agreement for that. They are presenting it as the ‘Kitchen Confidential’ of the gaming industry ” Kitchen Confidential is a book of the year 2000 written by the chef Anthony Bourdain, who did not hesitate to show what was cooked, never better said, after the kitchens of the most prestigious restaurants. Can we expect the same from Cliffy with the video game industry?
Do not make mistakes, video games will always be my first love. What is certain is that games are still essential for Bleszinski, who did not hesitate Remember them on your last line in your Facebook update: “Do not be wrong, games will always be my first love.” Will wait to await new adventures of the developer in the coming months.
