Molyneux on Fable 2
Perhaps aware of the critcism levelled at him for the first game, Lionhead founder Peter Molyneux has told SPOnG that the sequel to his action-RPG will have a wealth of improvements. "I didn't really feel it was possible to, for example, play the whole game without using any magic, or to play a game as a swordsman, so you'd feel like a real swordsman." He mentions that there will also be "a very, very, very big surprise" feature which he doesn't think has been done well in most games. His rather vague hint is that "it was done very well in one game, and that game is now almost 30 years old."
Past Fable 2, Lionhead's next project is based on Molyneux's experiences during late September of last year. "I think it was September 23. If you look in the news, there was an event that went on in the world that gave me the idea for the game." This may be even more cryptic, since the only events that seem to stand out on Google are Hurricane Katrina and the FBI assassination of Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, the leader of a violent movement for Puerto Rican independence.
