Media Molecule was founded by a small troupe of Lionhead veterans who, bolstered by their work together on cult indie game Rag Doll Kung-Fu, decided they could see a great way to make innovative, creative games for the ‘next generation’ of game consoles - all the while staying small and true to that ‘family’ vibe you only get when working in a small, talented team.
With a little help from their friends, they put together the team that now calls themselves Media Molecule. Drawing on 70+ years of collective industry experience, and the pain and pleasure of releasing a whole shed-load of great titles (including Black & White, Fable, Burnout, Dungeon Keeper, Ratchet and Clank, Rome: Total War, Home, EyeCreate, Crackdown and of course, Rag Doll Kung-Fu), we are working hard to bring you The Next Big Thing ™ on PS3. In the mean time, we recommend eating lots of ice cream as a great way to get through those long days and nights.
