Lionhead: Milo & Kate Tech Present in 'Fable: The Journey'


According to Lionhead creative director Gary Carr, the Milo and Kate technology we've seen before will be present in Fable: The Journey.

In an interview with GI.biz last week at Develop, Carr stated that instead of Milo being Milo, the little boy we've all seen in the tech demo is now "a little wizard".
“He is around in tech form. But it is a shame, because I think [Milo & Kate] was really brave and different and interesting,” he said. “There is just something about Lionhead that makes this wacky thinking about what we want to do next. The Milo thing, so many companies wouldn’t do that. Wouldn’t say right, we’re going to try and make a living breathing virtual boy, and we don’t care what you think about that.

“We built, finished, two fifths of it. It lives. I’d love to show that one day. I’m not sure I can, but I’d love to. We have to have a few other strings to our bow otherwise that doesn’t sustain longevity and I think one of the things that’s kept Lionhead going for 15 years if they’ve tended to have other interesting things going on in the background.

“Innovation is core to what we do.”
Carr then spoke about the "worst kept secret around the office", Molyneux's departure from Lionhead.
“Peter isn’t a snake, but he needs to shed a skin every now and again. I think when it’s running itself, when people know what they’re doing, when it’s carved its path and it’s on a trajectory and it’s a working, functioning studio, which can take years, something dies in Peter and he wants to go and do it again,” he said.

“We knew he was going to do it even when he was denying it. And that’s good for him, he needs to do that. So there’s absolutely no animosity, it was just one of those things. It was the worst kept secret internally.”
Fable: The Journey is out in October exclusively for the Xbox 360.
