Curiosity cut the crap

Curiosity was, its makers insist, an experiment. It ran from 6 November 2012 until May 26 2013 when Bryan Henderson, who'd downloaded the app around an hour before the close, tapped away the final cubelet and discovered what was inside the cube. A video, soon enough shared, outlining the plan for Henderson to be the presiding deity of 22Cans' next game Godus. "It is the ability to be a digital god," said Peter Molyneux. Or in other words, the prize is another promise.

You know what get me every time? Molyneux's smug expression. His reputation is nothing now but unkept promises, and whether its an old pic or a new, that's always his expression.

Can't stand to look at it.

Maybe like in old pinball machines, Molyneux has a counter of credibility with a number limit on it. When it reached max, fliped to zero, but guy behaves the same.

Dont like the guy dont know why.

I'm always surprised by the Molyneux hate. The guy is one of my favorite developers of all time and gave gaming some of it's best games ever, all before he even touched a Fable game. The guy created new genres and challenged other developers to evolve their thinking of games.

And yet people can't see past his enthusiasm to actually give the guy credit for everything he's done for the industry over the decades he's dedicated his life to the medium. I wish more developers out there had half the passion for their projects that Molyneux shows.

This article reads like it's from a guy who hadn't played a game before 2005 and only found out about Molyneux recently. The guy's listed hobbies on his blog include "Games, booze, smoking"...I kid you not. Kids today. We're talking about a developer who has delivered again, and again and again over the decades. Yeah, he's had some games fail to live up to their aspirations along the way, but do we judge the Rolling Stones for their lackluster albums or their classics? Looking forward to Godus. I've been waiting for another game like this since Populous.

He's often seen as a bad guy because of not delivering on some promises, but he's developed some outstanding titles and I believe that overall he has the best intentions, its just a shame that sometimes he's a bit too over enthusiastic.

He's that friend who was following the new transformers movie since it was announced and comes over to tell you how awesome it's going to be every day for 2 years before it's released.

Anon19741651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

@ ScubbaSteve. Yep. If that friend was also an award winning developer who holds a place in the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of fame for redefining game genres and creating some of the best, most innovative game titles ever seen before many on this site were even out of diapers.

Then yes. He'd be just like that friend.

How is anybody actually surprised by this news? It's Peter Molyneux. The man hasn't had a decent game since Black and White.

dcbronco1651d ago

Peter Molyneux may not have done anything recently but I love his new approach to making games. By hiring people from industries that have nothing to do with gaming it should bring new ideas to light instead of the same old mechanics we've had for years now. I'm looking forward to what they do next.
