Molyneux – expect first 22 Cans project in “about six weeks”
Peter Molyneux has said to expect 22 Cans to release its first project, 22 Experiments in “about six weeks.”
Speaking with Beefjack, during the GaME12 event, Molyneux said: “We’ve got 12 people now, and I’m trying to push this to 20 people as soon as possible, and then we’re directing all of our staff at the moment towards these things called 22 Experiments, which are 22 experiments that we will release digitally on the journey onto the final product that we’re going to make.”
Molyneux said he hopes the first title will be released “about six weeks”, and while he wouldn’t be drawn information regarding platforms or genre, he did say the offerings would be “very very different, unusual, I think very intriguing things.”
“Our whole passion [at 22 Cans] is to use some of the technology which is around in the world today in a single product and a single experience, in a way that no one else has used it,” he said at the event.
“I am fed up to the back teeth of consuming other people’s visions – of directors’ and screenwriters’ ideas of what a hero should be; of novelists writing stories that they think are good, but I think are rubbish. Why can’t we have stories about me? I want to have my own unique experiences.
“When I put my son to bed at night, the best story I can tell is a story that I make up, and that’s a story about his life. And he loves it. That’s the story I want.
