Peter Molyneux to receive Game Developer’s Choice Lifetime Achievement Award, Tim Schafer to host ceremony

The Game Developer’s Choice Awards advisory committee announced this week that its Lifetime Achievement Award for 2011 will be given to Peter Molyneux, founder of Lionhead Studios, for his “contributions to the art and science of games.”

Molyneux has been in the business of game development for decades, having first co-founded Bullfrog Productions in 1987, then founding Lionhead Studios ten years later.  Games developed under his guidance include the popular “Fable” franchise, as well as “Theme Park,” “Magic Carpet” and “Black & White.”

In addition to announcing the award, the GDCA committee also announced the selection of Tim Schafer as the host for the ceremony.  Schafer is the founder of Double Fine Productions and is most well known for his development of “Psychonauts” and “The Secret of Monkey Island.” He also hosted the ceremony in 2007 and 2009.

The Choice Awards ceremony will take place on March 2, 2011, during the Game Developers Conference, and will air live on GameSpot.com.  Here’s hoping we see a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle.
