Former Bullfrog poster-boy and the man who always wants us “to believe” may not be all too right in the head. Peter Molyneux of 22Cans, the new indie team that recently released Curiosity for mobile devices and is now working on a Kickstarter, says that things may not be going so well if they keep heading in this direction.

The Sixth Axis picked up quotes from Molyneux during his interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, where a number of topics were discussed. The one thing that stood out above them all was a quote about Molyneux's over-ambitions and under-achievements...
“I swore that when we started 22 Cans that we wouldn’t over-promise, and I guess through stupid mistakes we have. I have to live by those. If it means that the project doesn’t get Kickstarted, if it means that people use the Kickstarter to vent their frustrations, then I guess I have to live by that.”

“I’m one of those human beings who’s surprised he’s still alive every time he wakes up in the morning,” he said. “I think I will be doing games until the day I die. I can’t see that, at this rate, the way I’m burning through my life… I don’t see that I’ll be alive much longer.”

Words of dolor right there. It's like Molyneux spent a day reading YouTube comments under a Justin Bieber video and then had an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

Right now, Molyneux and friends are still campaigning on Kickstarter for their god-game, Project Godus.

It's still off to a terrible start after being featured at every major gaming and news outlet around the globe, managing only £137,532 out of £450,000 over the past couple of days.

I'm not sure what they can do to win jaded gamers over but saying you may not live much longer is a good way to go.

If you're feeling bad for the man and you at least want to learn more about False Promise #937, you can learn more about Project Godus by heading to the official Kickstarter page.
