THE WORK OF PETER MOLYNEUX: THE THREE (FACES) OF A DESIGNER

Raphaël Lucas

 

Far from the all-troubled path, Peter Molyneux's career has gone through many periods of doubt. If he innovated in the 1980s, questioned genres and moral choices in the 1990s and 2000s, today he is seen as much as a brilliant character as an excellent (and too talkative) salesman. His games have transformed genres, often ahead of others in their concepts.


This book reviews Peter Molyneux's entire career, from his first successes at the end of the 1980s (Populous, Syndicate, Magic Carpet) to his current social experiments, including the Fable series , role-playing games that marked by their aesthetic and narrative choices, questioning the very notion of hero.


To transcribe and analyze in all nuances this course neither all black nor all white, Raphaël Lucas was able to talk with Peter Molyneux for more than twenty hours. The creator indulged in it like never before. His childhood, his wanderings, his mistakes... From his happiest periods to the darkest, all the significant events of his life have been mentioned. For the time of a preface, he returns to what these numerous interviews, spread over several months, brought him.
