Peter Molyneux Needs Your Money ASAP Because “I Am Not by Any Measure a Hugely Wealthy Individual”

Kotaku: "Now, the accomplished yet controversial game designer has to rely on the generosity and goodwill of others to get his next game made. And if the Kickstarter campaign for Godus—a re-invention of the popular god-game genre he innovated decades ago and the next title from his new, 22 Cans dev studio—doesn't get fully funded, Molyneux says his marriage might be in trouble." (Industry, Peter Molyneux)

Attention whore much, Molyneux?

First he claims he is depressed because his ideas aren't selling any more. Then he claims he won't be living much longer. Then he claims he realizes his game won't get funding because of his past.

Now he's begging for $$$ because he claims his marriage is in jeopardy.

I can see next week's headline now: "Molyneux says we need to fund Godus or he will lose custody of his children and be sent to jail".

I read the article and I didn't see any mention of his wife leaving him or him losing custody of his kids. I mean, there's an entire paragraph where he does nothing but praise his wife for being the anchor, to keep him focused.

Am I missing something? I mean, if his marriage is in trouble because this risk doesn't pay off, then shame on them for not being able to make it through good times and bad.

Regarding the game itself, it looks interesting, but I need to see more in the way of gameplay before I potentially back this project.

The guy who wrote this article should be fired immediately and nver allowed to write again. He twists Peter's words cruelly and unashamedly.

It's pathetic that people agreed with the first poster so much by the way. Pathetic. Read the damn article.

@lisawebster7
You should get a hold of Peter Molyneux or fund Godus.

@ dktxx2

I don't find that to hard to believe, this is Kotaku. Their standards have never been particularly good.

Well now we can all understand the class of developers that Microsoft has worked with over the years.
stfu... :)

He wouldn't have this problem if he stayed with MS. Its not like MS was asking Peter to pump out Fable. He was free to do whatever. This could easily became an XBL arcade/windows game.

I'm not helping him.
HammadTheBeast  +   984d ago
Let's be honest. Yes, MS was making him pump out Fable. After the last one, of course anyone would leave. Kinect ruins us all.

You might make him cry if he read this.

I don't know whether to bubble your comment "funny" or "well said". Sad. Moly's a little emo lately.

I don't think he was ever really all there. I don't have anything against him really, he just has never seemed stable.

your know your trash when you have to go to kickstarter for money.
AusRogo  +   984d ago
I'm also not a wealthy man. People, give me your money!
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   984d ago
Ok. Peter Molyneux may not be wealthy. Not surprised. Game developers aren't millionaires. However, this is Peter Fucking Molyneux we're talking about here, his name carries quite a bit of weight in the industry. He should easily be able to find a publisher.

That aside. This article is fucking horrendous, the writer should be fired for twisting words into such slander.

I've seen his house he is really well off. I'm on the dole man
