This year’s Molyjam has a slightly different theme to last year’s, but it’s equally interesting.
Unlike the first Molyjam, which produced games based on ideas from Peter Molyneux parody twitter account Peter Molydeux, Molyjam Deux will go straight to the source.
“Isn’t Molyjam all about defying conventions, and getting at the True Heart of the Lion Himself?” organisers wrote in an update to the July event’s website.
“We have decided on this year’s theme – actual, out-of-context quotes from the real Peter Molyneux. Molyneux is a man who needs no assistance when it comes to parody. His own words are strong enough. Who but Molyneux has the strength to say things like, ‘Pull the right trigger to see The Most Interesting Thing In The World’. Or, ‘It’s you Americans. There’s something about nipples you hate.'”
Molyjam organisers have nominated 60 quotes, with 22 highlighted as particularly good (“one for each of Molyneux’s cans”), but participants are welcome to find their own quotes, too.
“Molyjam isn’t about sequels. Molyjam is about changing everything. Change is good – without change we die, alone in the pits of despair,” organisers continued.
“Changing everything is about making videos of tiny men the punchline to a Curious year-long joke. So let’s change the world, together.”
Ha ha, delightful. Molyjam Deux will take place from July 5-7; you can register your interest here.
