Peter Molyneux gets French Knighthood

5 04 2007

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has been awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et de Lettres by the French government.

The honour is awarded for significant contributions to the arts and literature, with Molyneux receiving his award last month.

“I am extremely proud to have received this honour,” said Molyneux.

“I see this as a credit for everyone at Lionhead Studios, all our games are a team effort. I am just the figurehead. It is fantastic to see videogames honoured in this way,” he added.

The awards were established in 1957 and have been bestowed on luminaries from the international worlds of film, literature, art and entertainment.

“I am particularly glad to salute today a veritable visionary, who shows for every creation of his own how videogames have their place in this stateroom,” commented minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres.
