Peter Molyneux is a computer game designer and programmer, responsible for well known "God games" Populous and Black & White, among others, as well as "Business Strategy" games such as Theme Park and most recently, The Movies.

Lauded as one of the world's most brilliant and inventive game developers, Molyneux has nevertheless acquired a reputation for issuing over-enthusiastic descriptions of games under development, which are found to be somewhat less ambitious when released. The most well-known case of this was with the game Fable, released in 2004 without many of the features talked about by Molyneux in press interviews during development. After the release, Molyneux publicly apologized for overhyping the game [1].

On the 6th of April 2006, Lionhead Studios was bought by Microsoft and now forms part of the Microsoft Game Studios. At E3 2006 Peter Molyneux gave several interviews in the press, in which he stated that "now his Lionhead Studios is part of Microsoft, they're more independent than when they were an independent developer."Kikizo interview
