Peter Molyneux on Godus’ brave new world, and why it couldn’t be made at Microsoft

Edge:Peter Molyneux’s studio 22 Cans is independent, but doesn’t feel indie. It’s relatively small and free to do whatever it wishes creatively, but it’s also very well funded and led by a game design legend; its first real game, following its briefly thrilling experiment Curiosity, is also a cross platform, persistent world simulation, one whose scope requires the kind of investment most indies only could dream of.

Lol this guy was the worst! Where does MS find these people?

forcefullpower3946d ago

Looks similar to Black and White just with different art style.

Peter Molyneux is as relevant to modern gaming as the Nintento Virtual Boy!

Pintheshadows3946d ago

Sorry Peter, but you are irrelevant. Every word that has come out of your mouth over the last decade has been an out right lie. The promises you make are never kept, thinking the Fable series is an RPG still amuses me, and I think everyone with a brain stopped paying attention a long old time ago.

XtraTrstrL3946d ago

I'll never forgive him for what he said Fable would be, and what it actually ended up being.

Peter Molyneux's new game is set in Fable's Albion

Project currently codenamed MOAT.

Misleader of all time?

It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil

"It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil"

If Phil were the man that made my life miserable, I would vote for him as well.

Regarding the topic, it could be both Peter and Phil working together.

M.O.A.T takes place in Albion, so it´s possible that Pete is working on new partnership with Xbox, which imo, is nothing but great news!

GhostScholar275d ago

What exactly has Phil mislead about? I can’t wait to hear the verbal diarrhea you come with.

His name is still used as a selling point for new games? Seriously?

jznrpg276d ago

If anyone knows his name you have to be extremely skeptical that what he delivers will be anything like what he says it would be and that’s best case scenario.

RaiderNation276d ago

He's like the "Tom Clancy" of video games.

InUrFoxHole276d ago

Lol what the hell man?!?!?

Number1TailzFan276d ago

I remember Black & White (PC) but other than that I can only think of Fable, B&W was a pretty cool game tho at the time.

sagapo276d ago

Populous was another one designed by Peter, released before B&W, godlike game as well, pretty good too.

Giblet_Head276d ago

I quite liked Magic Carpet growing up.

"His name is still used as a selling point for new games? Seriously?"

The guy is a gaming legend for gamers who actually knows and played his games, like Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Black & White and Fable for example.

Becuzisaid275d ago

I'm certain that most who actually know who he is would contest your use of legend. He's the living, human embodiment of false advertising.

Obscure_Observer275d ago


There´s an abyss between false advertisement and bad games.

Most gamers will get excited for games from great gaming creators rather than focus on their exaggerated promises.

Kojima described his Xbox exclusive game as "very unusual like no one has ever experienced before, leveraging the cloud." He said all publishers he presented the project, called him mad and rejected his game but Microsoft, because it´s too crazy.

Is Kojima exaggerating? Obviously. It´s gonna be a bad game? Hardly.

Imagine a game where Peter Molyneux presents an extraordinary set of ideas that players will enjoy for years to come. Now imagine that this particular game will come out because it will never exist.

Profchaos276d ago

Does Milo live under a bridge there

shinoff2183276d ago

Captain overseller is returning. Ain't heard his name in years.

shinoff2183275d ago

Peter was overselling games way way before cdprojectred, and bethesada
