Lionhead legend Peter Molyneux to be interviewed LIVE by Eurogamer.net readers on November 30th

Brighton, England, November 22, 2007: Lionhead Studios head Peter Molyneux will be interviewed by Eurogamer.net’s readers using the site’s LiveText system on November 30th, following a fantastic inaugural use of the service with Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells on November 16th.

The interview will begin at 3pm GMT.

The LiveText interview system allows Eurogamer.net’s readers to submit questions to the interviewee through a moderator, with answers appearing live in front of users without the need for page-refreshing.

The interview with Evan Wells– co-creator of PlayStation 3 action-adventure Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and such franchises as Jak&Daxter and Crash Bandicoot– was a resounding success, lasting over an hour and allowing Eurogamer.net’s readers direct access to one of the world’s greatest current developers.

“We couldn’t be happier that Peter’s agreed to be the focus of our second LiveText interview,” said Eurogamer Publisher Patrick Garratt.“He’s without doubt one of the most revered names in game-creation. With his background including games like Black&White, Fable, Populous and Magic Carpet, and current projects including Fable 2, we believe user-interest for the event will be astronomical. We feel extremely proud in being able to say that Eurogamer is the only site giving game fans access to questioning developers of this calibre.”

“To get tough and frank questions from gamers is what I am looking forward to this Friday. I don’t mind whether they are about Fable 2, Lionhead's other games or the industry in general.” said Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux.
