Peter Molyneux to receive the BAFTA fellowship

Peter Molyneux will receive the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ Fellowship at this year’s GAME British Academy Video Games Awards, on Wednesday, March 16th. It makes sense. The guy has been on a roll for a long time, starting with Populous. After that came Theme Park, Magic Carpet, Dungeon Keeper and now the Fable games, among others.

Peter Molyneux, on the reward: “I remember back in 1967 watching the first BAFTA awards on television with my family and seeing them being so excited about those accolades. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think it would be possible for me to accept one of the greatest honours the entertainment industry has to offer.”

For the first time, the BAVGA awards will be streamed at go.ign.com/baftamicrosite as well as at www.bafta.org and www.baftagameaward.com.
