"During last month's Game Developers Conference, my beloved co-worker Nick Breckon decided to play a little prank on me. In short, he convinced me that renowned game designer Peter Molyneux, who is currently wrapping up production on Fable 2 (X360), wanted to do an interview.
Of course, there were a few stipulations, as relayed by Shacker Abigail Sponge, playing a convincing representative from Lionhead. At first they were mostly innocent requests, but they soon grew increasingly eccentric, to the point where I was expected to call him Sir Molyneux, wear a pink shirt that complimented my brown eyes, and polish up on my Connect Four skills.
Needless to say, everyone had a good laugh once the prank was revealed. I received countless messages from numerous folk scattered all about the industry. So many, in fact, that when Microsoft offered a real interview with Peter Molyneux, I was a bit apprehensive. How was I to be sure this wasn't part of another prank?
Thankfully it turned out to be legit, and I spent a good hour talking with Sir Molyneux about all sorts of things, including Fable 2, Lionhead's next project, Grand Theft Auto 4, the PC gaming industry--and of course, the prank itself."
