Aksys Game has launched the first episode of a new series that discusses the history and creation behind Little Dragons Café with the creator Yasuhiro Wada.
Wada-san clarifies that in the beginning, Little Dragons Café wasn’t always a game about dragons. It was about the individuals who seen the café and the interactions you would experience with them. He desired the soothing atmosphere of this café to make the player feel good by just being there. The developer also mentions that he believes his game allowed him to connect with everyone else on earth.
Wada-san requested the director of 7’scarlet Tomio Kanazawa to get help, and Kanazawa-san gave him some advice and described the original idea for a bit bland. He explained that there has to be something in the game that all people can relate to. That’s how the notion of raising a dragon came into Wada-san. He loved Dragon Quest along with Puzzle & Dragons, therefore he believed there was something about dragons that was catchy.
