Peter Molyneux Interview
9:53 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Joystiq recently posted an interview with legendary game designer Peter Molyneux, founder of Lionhead Studios. The interview covers the over-the-top hype surrounding Fable, trends in the gaming industry, and even a brief discussion of the Mac as a gaming platform.

Why haven't developers picked up on Mac OS X?

PM: It's a very interesting idea. We've always supported the Mac and we've always done Mac versions of all our titles, and I think that this is a perfect thing (referring to the MacBook on table being used to record interview) and I've never really quite worked out why more people don't support it. I think...

There's this Catch 22 situation where not many people play games on the Mac and therefore developers don't want to make games for the Mac.

PM: Exactly. I think it would need Apple to get behind games. There's nothing in their operating system that panders to games at all and I take my hats off to Microsoft. I think they've realized that games are important. And then you have this fantastic thing where they're saying that they'll let you play PC games against Xbox 360 players. Of course that's a nightmare for us designers, because we have to work out how to design games that work on both platforms equally as well.
