Renowned game designer Peter Molyneux, creator of iconic titles such as Populous, Theme Park, Black & White, and Fable, is soon releasing a new game called Legacy. This game is a business simulation where players must find land to establish their businesses, design and produce goods for selling, and use the profits to expand their enterprises into large corporations. Legacy features charming and vibrant cartoon-style graphics.
What sets this simulation game apart from Molyneux’s previous sim games is that it will be distributed by Gala Games, a Web3/blockchain/NFT gaming company. This means that Legacy will have a land purchasing system in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and its own cryptocurrency called LegacyCoin. It proudly defines itself as a Blockchain Business Sim.
Originally planned for a 2022 release, Legacy had to be delayed until the end of 2023, which might be seen as rather late considering the ongoing Web3 gaming trend. We will have to wait and see how successful it will be.
In 2012, Molyneux resigned from Microsoft and went on to establish his own game company called 22cans. Prior to Legacy, his previous game was Godus, a god game similar to Populous, released in 2014. However, it did not achieve much success. After that, Molyneux did not create any new games until now.
TLDR: Peter Molyneux, the renowned game designer, is preparing to release Legacy, a business simulation game with cute cartoon-style graphics. What sets it apart is its distribution by Gala Games, a company specializing in Web3, blockchain, and NFTs, making Legacy a blockchain business sim with a land purchasing system using NFTs and its own cryptocurrency, LegacyCoin. Originally planned for 2022, the game’s release has been delayed until the end of 2023. Molyneux’s previous game, Godus, released in 2014, did not achieve great success.
