Peter Molyneux Interview: “I haven’t got a reputation in this industry any more”

When Peter Molyneux agreed to speak to me, I knew the interview was going to be tense. I knew that an article we'd posted on Monday, asking what was going on with the development of Godus, had kicked up an enormous storm for 22cans and its boss, with the rest of the gaming press picking up and running with it. So I assumed, when he…

Impressions: Godus

It is 1991. I am eagerly clicking my way into my copy of Populous II, recently purchased from WHSmith (can you imagine!) and Uncle John is watching over my shoulder. He observes for a while, and then says “just looks like a lot of clicking to me.” It is, I say, but there's something going on here, a struggle, a strategy. It is 2013. I…

Molyneux On Religion, Godus’ “Crazy” Single-Player

Peter Molyneux is up to his old tricks again, for better or worse. He's gone gaga for Godus, and he wants the world to hear all about it. And who knows? Maybe this time - finally, after years of squandering his legendary status on unfulfilled promises and mediocre games - he's onto something. Godus certainly sounds fascinating, with Molyneux describing it as a massively polytheistic…

Molyneux Promises Ludicrously Big For Godus

True fact: pretty much all I do is interview Peter Molyneux. I try to do it as much as possible, because that's the only time Jim lets me out of my box. Coincidentally, Molyneux knows a thing or two about boxes. His most recent one, Curiosity, erupted into a poof cloud of half-truths and forgotten promises, but now he's sweeping them away to reveal a…

Molyneux On GODUS’ Surprise Publisher, Free-To-Play

Peter Molyneux likes to say things - perhaps a little too much, if a few forgotten promises pertaining to Curiosity and GODUS are any indication. Yesterday, he and I discussed Curiosity's aftermath, what it means for GODUS, and why things like a PC version of the almighty floating cubolith never surfaced. Today, we continue that discussion with what exactly the sudden (and very unexpected) addition…

Molyneux On Curiosity, GODUS, And Forgotten Promises

Most cubes contain air, sugar, or tiny men named Rubik. Not Peter Molyneux's, though. Instead, Molyneux himself emerged from the cuboid cocoon with promises of virtual immortality. Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland will soon be godding at an eons-old level even though he's just 18. For some, though, that prize rang hollow. "All that tapping," many cried, "for the sole purpose of advertising 22Cans' next…
