Fable 2: "less features and more polish" says Molyneux

Lionhead games need less random features, says design director Peter Molyneux

Sept 17, 2007

The man in charge of all things Fable 2 has spoken about how his development mantra has changed since his early days with Bullfrog and the start-up period of Lionhead Studios.

"At the moment what I say all the time is less features and more polish," he toldus during a recent Creative Minds interview. "Lionhead games need less random features, but to refine and hone the core features.

"Combat is good example of this; we could have thrown in 100s of different spells, moves and effects but I now realise it's better to have fewer really good spells and moves which really work. In other words quality rather than quantity."
