E3 09: Lionhead taking precautions against 'touching' Milo



12:40 PM on 06.04.2009

Peter Molyneux knows that we're a savage group of people. We kick children, shout obscenities, and curb-stomp puppies on a daily basis. So, not surprisingly, within moments of Lionhead Studio's Milo project being unveiled, many of us has inappropriate thoughts about what we could possibly do with Milo.

And so, Molyneux said that they're taking "very, very, careful precautions" to make sure that we don't have inappropriate relationships with Milo. The game is supposed to replicate your childhood -- the fun and simplicity of it all. So, "it's almost impossible to form an inappropriate relationship... it's just not something that's possible to do within the game."

Well, Mr. Molyneux, that sounds like a challenge. So, you don't want to give us the option of locking Milo in a room and leaving him to die, but we can still introduce him to our pet snake. Plus, you know somehow, Japan is going to do something inappropriate with this technology. Sure, it might not be with Milo, but it might be with Kate, whoever she might be -- the full title of the game is Milo and Kate, by the way.
