Peter Molyneux Breaks Down Into Tears Again After Realizing He Can No Longer Make Good Games
After an awkward interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun where Peter Molyneux broke down into tears after realizing he over-promised in his vision for GODUS, he broke down again in a GODUS project video after realizing he can no longer make good games.
The following is a transcript from the Project GODUS Kickstarter video:
Molyneux: This game will be a reinvention of Populous. It is a throwback to my glory days. After all, I practically invented the God genre of video games.

[Molyneux begins to cry]
Camera person: Woah, Pete. Calm down. Let me-

Camera person: Well, uh. This is slightly embarrassing, are you sure you want me to-
Molyneux: I already cried like a week ago in some other interview! This is just par for the course now!
Camera person: No really, I’m just going to turn it-
Molyneux: Don’t you dare do it, Jim!
[Molyneux regains composure]
Molyneux: So please, help kick-start GODUS. I promise not to over-promise this time! But GODUS will be the best game you will play next year when it releases!
Project GODUS has been slated for a 2014 release date.
Fellow game designer Will Wright also had a similar breakdown a few days ago after realizing he too can no longer make good games.
