I want you to put aside some time to read this interview that John Walker of Rock, Paper, Shotgun did with Peter Molyneux about Godus (Free). If you know of any other game-related interview that starts with the interviewer literally asking the subject “Do you think that you’re a pathological liar," I’d be curious to read it. This is a rare treat – it’s an interviewer not willing to take any BS versus Peter Molyneux, someone certainly ambitious enough to think he can take on a hardball interview like this.
Seriously, this sort of thing just does not happen – there’s too many PR people in the way, there’s not enough people that want to be grilled over the failures of their game. I can certainly empathize with Molyneux a bit on the difficulties and stress he’s going through, but he’s someone who has constantly overpromised, and has taken money straight from the interested public to try and make something. When he doesn’t deliver on those promises, it’s good to see that someone is taking him to account, because he is literally accountable to the people who paid him to make Godus.
Savor this one while you can, folks. You won’t read a lot of interviews like this, and Molyneux says he won’t be doing any more press, but if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.
