Josef Fares, the director of emotional XBLA adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is currently in the planning stages of his next project; something that promises to be emotionally charged once again and hugely innovative. In fact Fares thinks it's an idea "that really hasn't been done before." Intriguing.

Picking up a BAFTA for innovation earlier this week, Fares told EDGE a little something about his next game. “I have a super-exciting game idea that’s going to be quite different from Brothers, but you will see that it’s the same person behind it,” he revealed.

However, Brothers studio Starbreeze won't be involved in Fares' latest venture. “With Starbreeze I went there for two years and I was there for 24 hours a day,” Fares explained. “You know, Starbreeze has been going through a lot of different changes and I have to figure out what to do next. I have the game already planned out, and I’m super-excited about it. It’s a game about emotions and something that really hasn’t been done before. I’m sure that people will react differently to it.”

Fares, who swapped movie making for video games, also praised the medium for being a hotbed for innovation and experimentation. “From a creative standpoint games aren’t as developed as films are – with films we know what works and what doesn’t work," he said. "With games, and with Brothers and the next thing I am thinking about, there’s so much to discover - I am surprised that we don’t see much more innovation.”

He continued: “I am not schooled in games design, I’ve not read one game design book – nothing. I like to keep my head fresh and I like to surround myself with people who don’t claim to know everything already – who are a little bit insecure in their creativity. That’s a good thing – I think insecurity is actually creative freedom.”

We'll have more on Josef Fares' mysterious new game as soon as an official announcement surfaces.
