Hello, my name is Arseniy Klishin, I am a Senior Producer at Sony Interactive Entertainment, where I worked on such games as God of War (2018), Blood & Truth and Death Stranding.
I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a Master of Entertainment Technology degree. Prior to CMU, I received my Applied Mathematics and System Programming degree at Moscow State University.
I believe Interactive Media is art.
For me digital and interactive media is a new form of passing your thoughts and emotions to a person. It is about telling the story, it is about sharing your feelings with a player. Not only it has visual, audio, text component, it has interactivity. This tool is very difficult to handle, but in right hands, it may become extremely powerful.
In fact, I would argue with a term “game” – this is not necessarily something you can win. You don’t win anything when you read a book, but you get life experience. And in my opinion, this is exactly how it should work with Interactive Media.
Please, do not hesitate if you would like to contact me, I am always happy to meet new interesting people.
Very best wishes,
