Lionhead website (http://lionhead.com/) and Lionhead twitter (https://twitter.com/lionheadstudios) both have new images as their backgrounds/twitter picture.

Eggs = Chickens = Fable? (or Black and White 3? or B.C.?) Make sure you keep with the thread for the eggciting developments as the egg probably slowly cracks moving towards E3.

Plant an egg and by the end of the game it will have grown into a mighty oak tree.

I really do hope the egg means the rebirth of Fable. Fable III suffered because it including half-hearted sim/strategy elements from previous Bullfrog/Molyneux games. It was meant to be an RPG but most properties were for sale and I bought EVERYTHING. It just made me super rich and undermined the wealth made from adventuring. Also the bits that didn't make sense such as to make a male NPC your friend you had to do Dirty Dancing with them. What's special about the Fable world is the Britishness of it all, and the atmospheric theme music. So i'd love this to be a new open-world Fable that has the gameplay polished and polished and polished again.

They are probably going to turn Fable into an MMO so instead of being surrounded by charmingly British NPCs, I'll be surrounded by 12 year old Americans that think I'm a 'bitch ass feggurt'. Something more like Fable 2 would be welcome though.

Hmm. Seeing BC again would be interesting.

Another Fable...mm, there's potential. The series needs an overhaul though. I and II were pretty good, didn't play III as I barely heard anything good about it.

It's a series that could be good again with a fresh approach. Could well be something else entirely though, an egg could mean anything.

That'd be cool. BC always looked quite interesting but probably before its time.

It is an online game where everyone has to tap on the egg, gradually making it crack. Only one person will see what is inside and it is up to them whether they tell anybody or not.

Yes I know Molyneux left Lionhead.

Didn't Moleneux leave? Maybe this one will be good.

I loved the first two Fable games, but strawberry floating hated the third. So yes, it needs a rethink.

Perhaps a Kinect-only on rails shooter?

Black & White 3 with kinect could be so so good if done right.

I'd like to see B.C come back, that game had some great potential.

Yeah I always loved the look of B.C, sounded quite ambitious but definitely different from most of the games on the market at the time (and even today). Would it be the sort of game that Microsoft would bring back..i'm not so sure. If they did it would show they are looking beyond the sort of games you'd expect to see them publish. I'd put my money on this being the much rumoured Fable MMO (or the MMO game they've been working on).

It'll be Fable.

On the "Xbox One console" reveal thing on IGN, they asked Molyneux if he thought Fable would make a good MMO, there was a sparkle in his eye and he said "Oh, I think it would make a great MMO". I know he's not at Lionhead any more, but he obviously knows what they're working on, so I think it's a Fable MMO.
