Fable 3 - Molyneux on moving away from an RPG

by Dhruin, 2010-03-11 20:19:53

Well, to sell more. Duh.  Anyway, here's Molyneux on how numbers are confusing and so on:

Action-adventure franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Assassin’s Creed include RPG elements, but don’t burden users with numbers and statistics. The action-adventure genre is a more natural home for “emotion and drama” – qualities that are core to the Fable franchise.  Molyneux also noted that the market share for RPGs is a niche, while action-adventures sell more broadly and are easier to market. Molyneux said the goal for Fable 3 is sales of over 5 million – more than 25% growth over Fable 2.
