Expect to see only one more game from Peter Molyneux's vibrant and eccentric noggin in the future. The legendary developer has suggested that he may be packing it all in once his indie studio, 22Cans, finishes the big project that it is currently working up to.
"Iím only going to make one more game, I think," he said to BeefJack
. "And that thought Ė the thought of every ounce of my energy, every ounce of my experience, every mistake that Iíve made in every single game Ė if I can learn from that, and use that energy to make one gameÖ thatís what Iím trying to do."Curiosity
, the tap-happy mobile app that has users working collaboratively to destroy a huge cube, doesn't count. Neither will the (supposedly) 21 other experiments that will be launch between now and then. The results and analysis of these little projects will form the basis of Molyneux's final game - a game that has a name and some features, but no clear direction just yet.
"Could I sit down and describe it to you in full at the moment? No, I canít," he added. "But that is my thought. Weíre going to make a game, weíre going to learn what it is to make a game in todayís world, and itís going to be the defining game of my career."
Apparently, a "huge announcement" will be coming from 22Cans today. Keep your eyes peeled.
