As reported earlier on MyGamer, Peter Molyneux held a conference at this years GDC to discuss game elements being added to the much anticipated Fable 2. One of the innovations discussed was the inclusion of the player’s sidekick throughout the game, a virtual dog! Molyneux stated that your pooch will have a variety of uses including being used as a weapon, a compass, and a scout. Your pup will also change its appearance along with your character depending on your. Slaughter a town of people and I’m sure your sweet little puppy won’t look too sweet anymore.
On a different note, Molyneux also explained that in Fable 2 it is possible to fall in love, marry, and produce offspring! The children would physically resemble their parents and grow as time passes in the game. Molyneux hopes for players to form emotional attachments to their in-game family.
Molyneux commented, “If I could get you to feel genuine love, that would be an innovation, that would be drama. You would walk away from that game feeling different; it would stay with you like a great movie or a great book."
