Michigan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan:_Report_from_Hell) (the game) was a 2004 PS2 adventure developed by Suda's Grasshopper Manufacture and directed by Contact's Akira Ueda, in which the player controls a cameraman who follows, and indirectly influences, a reporter investigating mysterious phenomena.

"There's a Spanish horror film called REC," Suda told Gamasutra (http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=25587), "and when I watched it, I realized it was pretty much Michigan, right there. I still have a lot of ideas along those lines, and I'd love to work with Spike sometime to make a new Michigan or a remake." Interviewer Brandon Sheffield discussed talks he'd had with US publishers about the game, who told him Sony declined it due to a lack of gameplay. So a remake would probably include more direct gameplay or ... would be for another platform.

Suda also said that he never expected to become a superstar game designer as a kid. "I wanted to become a sushi chef or an astronaut."http://www.joystiq.com/media/feedlogo.gif (http://www.joystiq.com)Suda 51 wants to remake Grasshopper Manufacture's 'Michigan' (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/10/23/suda-51-wants-to-remake-grasshopper-manufactures-michigan/) originally appeared on Joystiq (http://www.joystiq.com) on Fri, 23 Oct 2009 23:00:00 EST.
