Even Mads Mikkelsen Was Baffled By The Story Of ‘Death Stranding’
Gamers have been thinking lots of theories after "Death Stranding" has dropped two trailers. It was described to full of mysteries that even the protagonists Mads Mikkelsen has been baffled by the story of the game.
Meanwhile, it is said that Hideo Kojima of Kojima Productions has left Konami officially after the allegations that the company's employees have poor work conditions. After leaving, he was about to receive an award from The Game Awards 2015 wherein he was banned from attending.
Despite that bad news, Kojima claimed that 2016 has been a tumultuous year for him, as per Gamerant. The greatest success he had last year is having his own company which is the Kojima Productions as well as hiring crews and developing more games especially "Death Stranding." For him, 2016 has been as eventful as 2015. The game has yet been released which means there still lots of work to be done.

GamenGuide noted that Kojima has this idea of placing his belief of evolution into this game. Players were described as the Homo Ludens, as confirmed by Kojima and Reedus in an interview. In the trailer, Norman Reedus was holding a baby while their umbilical chord were still connected.
