The Strange Works of Taro Yoko : From Drakengard to Nier: Automata
by Nicolas Turcev and Taro Yoko




Overview -
Throughout his entire career, Taro Yoko has always felt disheartened by the image of humanity reflected in most big-budget video games, which propose the use of firearms as the principal means of action. Through his own work, from Drakengard to NieR: Automata, this artist attempts to explore the reasons behind our strange fascination with conflict.
Is man so vicious that he must triumph, discriminate, hurt and kill even for entertainment?
Within the great fields of ruin resulting from wars in which mankind battled against mankind, Taro Yoko perceives this "entertainment" as a way for hope, a horizon, a shield against evil.
In this book we explore the contours of his games, the behind-the-scenes of their development, the complexity of their tales and their thematic depth. Discover this multifaceted and altruistic creator, who is convinced that video gaming is a diverse and unique medium.
