Earlier today the Peter Molyneux-helmed Lionhead Studios – the developers of Fable – tweeted their official website address – with no other information. Curious, I clicked and was greeted with the iconic achromatic image of Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara that graces T-shirts worldwide. Accompanying the image is a thumbs up or thumbs down selection, and the following quote :
"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love."
There is also a very feint â€œ6â€ on the right hand side. Clicking thumbs-up takes you to their standard news page, but the url is suffixed with â€œfollowers.â€ Clicking the thumbs down takes you to the same page, only this time the url is appended with â€œSubjects.â€ The colour of the scrolls on the side of the page are also different depending on your choice. Oddly, clicking anything on the news page takes you back to Che.
Curiouser and curiouser. I think it’s fairly safe to say that this is a teaser for a new game. That barely noticeable 6 may allude to Microsoft’s GamesCom event in Cologne in six days time, but reallyâ€¦who knows? It’s time for a bit of internet matlockery, friends. Any of you have any ideas?
