    Six days, fourteen hours, twenty-three minutes; the current status of Lionhead's mysterious countdown. Lionhead Studios, the developer behind the Fable series, has taken down their whole site in place of a mysterious clock counting down until next Monday. What's so significant about this day? Well, we have no clue, Lionhead hasn't said anything about it. Our main guess is that it has something to do with an "unannounced title" that they are gathering Lead Engine Programmers for as seen in this job listing. The job listing expires March 2, Friday, so there is a possibility that they will announce what this project is once they have the staff gathered. It could be a new Fable game, or maybe even a new IP, I'm hoping for the latter but we'll just have to wait for the clock to strike zero to find out.


    Countdown To Monday-Lionhead Studios Preparing For Big Announcement?

    Anybody have any guesses?

    It's going to be The Movies 2.

    I never got to play Black and White 2 but I thought the general reception was that it wasn't as good as 1?

    I hope it's another Black & White. I quite enjoyed playing the original.

    Also hoping against hope for a new Dungeon Keeper.

    Honestly none of Lionhead's games have been that great but I can't really fault them for their ambition.

    Lionhead Studios don't own Dungeon Keeper franchise, they don't have any rights to make DK3. Unfortunately.

    It's going to be The Movies 2.

    I never got to play Black and White 2 but I thought the general reception was that it wasn't as good as 1?
    There were some silly changes like you, as a God, having to buy buildings and upgrades from some kind of divine store, the story was a very thin excuse and overall I didn't feel as involved in the world because of a lack of (decent) sidequests and even the shoulder devil and angel seemed to be less well written. They also cut the number of creatures for example. It overall felt too streamlined I'd say.

    But it was very pretty and I especially liked the changes to the building mechanics (commanding armies as an evil god was also kinda fun) and I thought your alignment was better reflected in the world. I just miss a lot of the stuff of the old one that made the worlds more interesting to explore and play with.

    Wish they would hire better writers tho, the funny/cute villagers were alright, but the overarching plot never tied me to the game. I mean obviously the amount of writers having experience with writing gods is small, but it's not like an impossible job either, especially if you personify them.

    nooooo :(

    Dungeon Keeper was great, I still play the DK2.
    Black and White 3 would be cool as well. Hell, everything but Fable would be cool. Fable got boring after the first.

    A few weeks ago I mailed them asking if the Black & White series belonged to history or if we might see it again in a far future. Never got an answer. Crossing my fingers it's a new B&W game!

    I actually liked the changes, I've spent hours just growing my village to span the entire island after the mission was done without any boredom

    If it's Black & White 3 I will die. I played the original tones and still do to this day, and I even loved the hell out of the second game even though everyone slates it.

    It has to be B&W3. If it's not I'll be upset.

    Edited:

    B&W2 was actually pretty awesome, really nice game. For some reason I don't think I completed either game which is something I definitely ought to get on some time.
