When first created, it was nothing more than a fun joke on one of the gaming industry’s more notoriously wild-minded developers. Now, the Peter Molyneux-inspired parody Twitter account @PeterMolydeux is at the very least a unique mind of his own in the industry.
Starting March 31st and lasting through April Fools’ Day, what was called an “International 48-Hour Jam Exploring the Works of @PeterMolydeux” began. While many I’m sure considered it a great joke that a parody twitter account could have a career retrospective without making a game, thousands of people clearly did not. Around 30 locations internationally participated by drawing, creating videos, and even developing the very games Molydeux thought of aloud to the world since the creation of the twitter account.
Twitch TV provided the event page for the live streams of artists working on concept art or even developing based on a simple tweet. Over a dozen streams were included in the event, all live at different times depending on local times in the country or region from which they broadcast.
After Molyjam concluded, the archive of games created based on these ideas was opened. At the time of this article, 283 games have been created, each corresponding to a single tweet by Molydeux.
You can play or just check out any of the game in their archive here.
