Molyneux: Thriving Indie Scene “Won’t Last”
Posted on Tuesday, March 25 @ 07:30:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
Peter Molyneux, the creator of iconic franchises like Fable and Black & White, is convinced that the indie scene won't be a booming part of this industry forever.
"These things go in cycles. What I'd say is, enjoy this time, because it won't last," Molyneux told CVG at this year's Game Developers Conference.
Don't think we're going to be all indies for the next five years - these things go in cycles, just like in the music business. You have a time where punk is big, and then you have times like now where everything is manufactured.Molyneux then went on to explain why be believes this will be the case, adding:
Here's the thing: walk through any hotel lobby at GDC and look at people's name badges. This morning at breakfast I saw three angel investors talking to indies. They're saying, 'take my money! I want to invest in your company!'Do you agree with Molyneux? Will this renaissance in independent game development eventually fade into irrelevancy? Let's not forget that these comments are coming from the man who dreamed up Project Milo, and we all know how that story ended.
