The Dimitri Project

Related Topics – Black & White, Peter Molyneux

This is the first mention I've seen of this, yet another game that Peter Molyneux has his hands in. A project currently codenamed Dimitri. This game is not Black&White2 or Creature Isle but something different. One would only assume there is a cow or monkey that you can pet in the game but details are still sketchy.

Peter Molyneux talked about role-playing games as one of his favorite types of games, and he had some very concrete ideas about what he might like to see in an RPG. The central theme of his idea is a living world that reacts to players' actions and changes over time--an idea that extends what Molyneux has already done in Black & White in terms of creature development and the effect of a player's alignment in the world.
While there you might want to check out some of the first details on Black&White2

Black & White 2

Related Topics – Black & White, Black & White 2

Got a few things related to Molyneaux, Black&White and all that stuff. Firstly in case you missed it Black&White2 was announced at ECTS. You can actually have a look at Black&White: Creature Isles here. In addition to that, here's some info on the Project Ego game which is being supervised by the supergamedesignermaster and developed by BigBlueBox. I've decided to include my own review of Black&White for you guys to go along with this info:

- Hey this is pretty cool! I like messing around with my pet and stuff [few hours pass by] - Um, this is tedious. [few weeks pass by] - Hrm.. I havent played this game since the first couple of days. Oh well [uninstalled]
It was pretty damn fun for a few hours though.
