EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH - Kazu­toshi Iida­coi­ida

Dosh­inTheGiant cre­ator Kazu­toshi Iida is the fo­cus of episode 52 of YouTube se­ries Toco Toco. The on­go­ing project in­ter­views Ja­panese cre­atives about the places in Ja­pan that in­spire them. Iida picks the Ris­sei Cin­ema Project, the Ky­oto Art Cen­ter, and Rit­sumeikan Uni­ver­sity (where he now teaches). Dur­ing the tour, how­ever, we get to hear about how he got into the videogame in­dus­try, his rec­ol­lec­tion of creat­ing his first two games – Aqua­naut’s

Holiday and TailOfTheSun – and why Dosh­inTheGiant was his last game. There’s also a glimpse of Iida’s ex­ten­sive per­sonal games col­lec­tion.
