Less than 24 hours after the release of 22Cans' "experiment" Curiosity, studio founder Peter Molyneux let loose, as he is wont to do. In an interview with BeefJack, Molyneux continues to be one of the most interesting personalities in game development, but this occasion happens to be a rather melancholy moment. Molyneux foresees the end of his career in gaming, even going so far as to say, "I'm only going to make one more game, I think."
At this point Molyneux gets rather abstract, almost as if he sees his next game as a spiritual event rather than an actual project:
"...that thought, the thought of every ounce of my energy, every ounce of my experience, every mistake that I’ve made in every single game. If I can learn from that, and use that energy to make one game, that’s what I’m trying to do."
Currently, however, Molyneux and his studio 22Cans are deep in the development of several experiments and aren't focused on a full-fledged game, yet. The first of said experiments was released a day ago, titled Curiosity, and is now available on mobile devices. The second experiment, tentatively titled Co-operation, is in the works.
It wouldn't be a Molyneux interview, however, unless he spiced it up a bit at the end:
"The scary thing is, we’re less than 48 hours away from another huge announcement. There’s all this Curiosity stuff, and we’re doing all this other stuff as well… it’s amazing. And it will be kind of live from Friday."
So check out 22Cans' Curiosity right now through the Apple or Android app store, as it's free and simply enough to get into. And make sure to look forward to later this week when Molyneux will reveal his "huge announcement" and something, something, goes live.
