Molyneux to Unveil "Big" Fable 2 Features
Molyneux, who revealed a lovable canine companion in Fable 2 at GDC 2007, will be speaking more about the RPG during his talk, "Fable 2: The Big Three Features Revealed." Fable 2 is slated for a 2008 release.
According to a blog post by GDC executive director Jamil Moledina, Molyneaux "will present the design concepts live, in-game, to provide the level of proof one gets from a traditional GDC postmortem."
He offered no more details on the "big three features," although the entry for the presentation on GDCs website reflects typical Molyneux ambition: "The wider context of [the three features] impact and influence on the RPG genre will also be examined as the ambition is also to evolve the genre itself."
Also newly announced is a presentation by EA executive producer and Westwood Studios co-founder Lou Castle, who worked on the Wii puzzle game, Steven Spielbergs Boom Blox. Castle will be talking about the relationship between Hollywood and games as well as sharing tips on "zero-documentation, heavy prototyping and failure-friendly principles."
GDC 2008 is scheduled for February 18-22, 2008 in San Francisco.
