It involved the player "reaching in and touching" the world which would "really factor" with Kinect he said. It's unlikely he has the time for it though.
"The Black & White series is really interesting," Molyneux told during E3. "Maybe it is something I should re-visit, but that's just me thinking, here now." The series ended with the Black & White 2: Battle of the Gods expansion pack.
"The original Black & White -- with the hand, reaching in and touching and stroking, you can really factor that with Kinect, and it could be really super cool," he said.
"It's purely me just thinking about it, and thinking about what Black & White means. I love the idea of that connection the hand gave you into the world, the feeling of power, the feeling of nurturing." Could this rekindle a divine interest in the series for Molyneux?
"The trouble with being a designer now is that there are way too many ideas than there is time to develop those ideas," he said.
"I would love to do something like a Black & White again. I would love to do a Fable 4. I would love to carry on doing Milo, but there is only a certain amount of resources and a certain amount of time." The world would love another Black & White, providing it went back more to its roots in the original game I wager - the second got a little too sterile.
Would you welcome a return to Black & White, videogamer?
