Lionhead founder tells Develop how the industry is growing up

Molyneux: “Mistakes are a good thing”

In the second part of our exclusive interview with Peter Molyneux, posted today, the Lionhead boss talks to us about his self-imposed PR blitz, the realities of working in a giant corporation like Microsoft, and how the industry is growing up.

"It’s a scary thing for this industry to realise that we’re not the new kids on the block anymore," he said. "We had so many excuses when we were only ten years old – purely as an industry, we were very, very arrogant. We said things like, ‘no-one else knows how to make creative stuff’.

"Now a lot of the people I know, both inside Lionhead and at other companies, are realising that this creative process that we do isn’t that different to other creative media, and rather than reinventing the wheel every time we should look elsewhere to how other people do things."
