The ex-Lionhead game designer called the Twitter comedian Molydeux a “smart guy” during a Q&A session. “I tell you one thing: he’s far funnier, far more daring and far more engaging than I will ever be. He just comes up with an endless supply of amazing and incredible ideas.”

While the Twitter account was set up in order to make light of Molyneux’s ideas it inspired a game jam by the name of What Would Molydeux?

Molyneux said he’s actually quite fond of the account, actually citing it as a reason he left Microsoft Game Studios and founded his own studio 22 Cans.

“And he’s another reason why I left Microsoft,” revealed Molyneux. “I have to tell you, he is. He was out there, and I was watching and laughing at his tweets probably harder than anyone. This guy, he can do all this stuff, he can be that free, he can explore these ideas like throwing babies into pits – you couldn’t do that with the corporate PR machine at Microsoft.”

“I think he’s fantastic, and I’d love to see some of those ideas turned into games. I hope he goes on going for a long time.”
