Twitter parody helped inspire Molyneux’s indie move
Peter Molyneux’s excellent Twitter parody would probably be delighted to learn that his playful pisstake helped break the legendary developer out of his corporate nest.
“Smart guy. I tell you one thing: he’s far funnier, far more daring and far more engaging than I will ever be. He just comes up with an endless supply of amazing and incredible ideas,” the Fable creator said.
“And he’s another reason why I left Microsoft. I have to tell you, he is. He was out there, and I was watching and laughing at his tweets probably harder than anyone. This guy, he can do all this stuff, he can be that free, he can explore these ideas like throwing babies into pits – you couldn’t do that with the corporate PR machine at Microsoft.
“I think he’s fantastic, and I’d love to see some of those ideas turned into games. I hope he goes on going for a long time.”
Some of them have, by the way.
