Ah, countdowns. We've had plenty of them lately and with Gamescom less than a week away, it makes sense there are a few in the mix. Lionhead Studios, for example, is clearly gearing up for a major announcement at Gamescom and is teasing the reveal by highlight a series of revolutionaries throughout history on the front page of its website.
Yesterday, it was Che Guevara. Today, it's Maximilien Robespierre, who was part of the French Revolution in the late 1700s. The website also includes a quote.
"Terror is only justice: prompt, severe and inflexible; is then an emanation of virtue; it is less a distinct principle than a natural consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to the most pressing wants of the country."
Again, the website asks you to be either a follower (thumbs up) or a subject (thumbs down). Any theories on what kind of game Lionhead is building up to here?
