Robert Siegel speaks with Peter Molyneux, creator of a new computer game called Black and White. In Black and White, the player is a god who tries to get villagers to believe in him or her. The "god" has a terrestrial representative: A creature who must be trained to perform acts of good and evil. Black and White has been noted for its advanced 3-D and artificial intelligence capabilities. Molyneux has been developing computer games since the late 80's. He says he finds inspiration in his childhood — and in his love of all types of games.
