Molyneux makes lofty claims about "Dimitri"

Peter MolyneuxPeter Molyneux is once again making the lofty claims that have become his trademark. This time around, Gamers Global got the Molyneux treatment, as the veteran designer expressed his excitement about an apparently revolutionary discovery his team made while working on a project called Dimitri. I love the way he begins:

"I’m saying absolutely nothing. I’ve been sat down in a room by the head of PR and been told to not talk about it.

Since Black&White, we’ve been thinking a lot about AI, Lionhead was founded with that thought of AI in mind. In terms of the core or the theory of the AI, we’ve moved from Black&White onto a project called Dimitri, which I’ve been tantalizing you about for a long time. And that team kept on researching. Dimitri was always an experimental thing, which is why I never showed it.

And then it moved from that experiment to a moment in time that happened six months ago when a discovery was made, and this discovery has been so exciting that it has lead to Lionhead focussing on it and sculpting a game around that. I think that discovery is so significant… This discovery has lead us to start a game and that game will be on the front cover of Nature magazines and Science magazines."

Nature and Science magazines, huh? That is setting the bar pretty high, considering those publications are two of the foremost scientific journals in the world, reporting, in very academic fashion, the newest scientific research in many different fields. If Mr. Molyneux really believes in what he is saying, I’d have to imagine that Dimitri will have some very interesting features whenever it comes around…

…or this is just Peter Molyneux being Peter Molyneux.
