Fable Designer On Not Getting Avatar (And Then Getting It)S

Peter Molyneux, the game designer behind the Fable franchise, was invited on the set of Hollywood motion picture Avatar. He didn't quite "get it".

"I went on the set of Avatar three times and thought, 'Good grief, he's got the same problem I have,'" Molyneux told the Times. "All I saw the first time was storyboards full of six-legged animals and I thought, 'I don't get this.' People were telling me it was going to be this great big 3D experience, and I was thinking, 'That's what they all say.'"

"Next time I saw five minutes of footage, and I got it," Molyneux continued." I finally saw what the storyboards were about. And I am probably one of the most receptive people there are to new things like this."

Molyneux was attempting to explain what Microsoft's upcoming Natal motion control peripheral will be like and relating how one must see the final product to finally "get it".

The game designer also mentioned that this Thanksgiving is the "shut off" date for Fable III when asked about the game's release date.
