Lionhead Teases Impending News with Che's Head?

This morning, visitors to Lionhead Studio's webpage were greeted with the iconic visage of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara.

Under the black and white image is a single quote from Guevara:

"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love."
Che Guevara (1928 - 1967)


Visitors have to click on either a thumbs up or a thumbs down to continue to the main page.

Clicking on the thumbs up brings visitors to a page that includes the word "followers" in the html and features not only Che's picture but two bullet riddled scrolls partially rolled down the sides of the page. There are also tiny insects fluttering about.


Clicking on the thumbs down brings visitors to a similar page with "subjects" in the html. The scrolls are a different color, there are no bullet holes, and the insects are replaced with what seems to be bits of floating dust.

The page also has a faded, hard to notice number six stamped next to Che's head. In six days Lionhead's Peter Molyneux will be speaking at a Microsoft Game Studio press conference to help kick off GamesCom in Cologne.


I think it's fair to say we can expect some news. But what will it be?
