Molyneux: Fable: The Journey E3 demo only four months old, better demo to be shown at gamescom

Tuesday, 28th June 2011 13:52 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has said that the E3 demo of Fable: The Journey came from when full development began four months ago.

“This project really only started… Well in earnest it started about seven months ago and we started coding about four months ago,” Molyneux told OXM UK at E3.

“There’s huge faults with this demo. The quality isn’t quite there, and we haven’t had enough time to fulfil all our ambitions,” he added, referring to the E3 demo that shown.

But Molyneux’s promised a much better performing demo for gamescom in Cologne in August, saying “our ambition is to give you something to play with.

“Because it already, rough though it is at the moment, it already feels pretty cool.”

So hold until Germany before you say once and for all if it’s an on-rails shooter. Which it isn’t.

It’s out next year for Kinect and 360.

    Unless you’re taking Kinect out of the equation I’m really not interested, Peter. Sorry.

    Jus the same old “It won’t suck, honest!” type quotes that Molyneux has been spewing ever since Fable 3 was announced.

    I’m kinda interested, i wonder if they are gonna show how they have made the on-foot stuff. All else looks pretty cool, not gonna lie.

    Everyone knows the game is going to blow either way and we know you basically scrapped the whole idea after E3 because you found out no one wanted an on rails Kinect enable 1st person Fable game, so now you’re working your ass off to figure out how to make it not on rails…excuse after gamescom: the demo is only two months old, it will be better at (insert video gaming event here)

    Where the hell is that Kinect update that UPS THE RECOGNITION OF THE DEVICE BY fourfold.

    Then I will be interested in this game….actually I never was interested in Fable.
