GDC 08: Peter Molyneux Demos Fable 2
As you’ll also see in the video, your husband and child won’t be too pleased with you if you decide to disappear for six months without a visit. As 1UP’s liveblog puts it, “The son in the game says that he thought she (the character Moleneux is playing) was never coming back. The husband comes out and is pissed. He shot the husband! PETER HAS NO SOUL!” Peter explained that there’s no undoing that – the husband is now dead, and as soon as he leaves the region with his character, the child will be sent to an orphanage. He throws around the word “freedom” quite a bit throughout, and you can see that’s really what they’re going for in Fable 2.
In other Fable 2 related news, a few weeks before launch you can expect to see an Xbox Live Arcade game that will allow you to start earning money for use in Fable 2 ahead of time. Interesting idea that will hopefully be free.
