Working on the remastered version of The Silver Case gave Suda 51 an opportunity to come face-to-face with a young Goichi Suda. They are one in the same, of course, but it was the 1999 release of The Silver Case that set Suda 51 on the path to becoming the game developer he is today.
“The game was made by the young Suda,” he told me at the Tokyo Game Show. “I wasn’t Suda 51 at that time. It seems like I’m producing my younger self.”
