Lionhead's World History Update: Lincoln's Face

Illustration for article titled Lionheads World History Update: Lincolns Face

Let's recap the Lionhead homepage countdown. First, Ché Guevara next to a six; then Maximillian Robespierre, leader of the Reign of Terror, next to a five. Today, it's Abraham Lincoln, brought to you by the number four.


OK, this very definitely is about a Gamescom announcement, but the choice of historical figures is quite intriguing. Guevara and Robespierre are men of considerable controversy; Lincoln, for his time (it was a civil war, after all) was, too, but definitely is remembered in a much better light than the other two. I mean, the guy's on money. End of argument.


Honest Abe's quote is about revolution, reinforcing that theme. Any clues what we're dealing with, other than yet another homepage countdown?

Pete, gotta cut it out with this shit. You're not doing yourself any favors with it anymore. People don't buy it.

Here's an idea: How about you remain calm and quiet on your games, finish them without major design flaws and stupid decisions, then let the content speak for itself?

I know, I know, it's hard to stomach, but sometimes it's better to let a game succeed on its own merits than to lie to your customers constantly and pretend it's something more than it is.
