It’s our favorite time again – what did Peter Molyneux say? This time, gaming’s grandfather (or maybe he’s the crazy uncle, or black sheep cousin) said indies should enjoy their time in the sun because it won’t last. He also gave one of my favorite quotes ever regarding Microsoft.
Speaking to Computer and Video Games, Molyneux explained that these things go in cycles:
“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.
Enjoy this time, because inevitably it will only last a short period.”
