Lionhead Studios, creators of the Fable series, are no more, meaning there’s nothing stopping crazy stories from their past getting out. Like this one, where an ex-employee claims the developers once had some stuff stolen by some teenagers, who Lionhead tracked down then threatened with...ratting them out to one of…
One of the earliest games shown for the original Xbox was BC. Dinosaurs! Cave men! I was so hyped for this game, and then it was cancelled.
Disappointed by Fable III? Even series creator Peter Molyneux now admits in an interview with Develop that "Fable III was a trainwreck". It's a good read if you want to see where it all went wrong.
In an interview on Games Industry International posted yesterday, Lionhead studio head John Needham outlined the developer's big-picture plans for Fable: Legends, its upcoming Xbox One exclusive title. According to Needham:
Good news: Fable Anniversary has a release window. Bad news: it's next year. Lead designer Ted Timmins took to Lionhead's blog today, letting fans know the Xbox 360 remaster of Fable: The Lost Chapters needed more time, and the game is now slated for a February 2014 release.
Fable Anniversary, an HD remake of the original Fable, is coming this year to the Xbox 360, according to this podcast, released this morning, from Major Nelson and Lionhead Studios' Ted Timmins.
Editor's Note: If people in the gaming industry really wanted to hide stuff, they're going to have to do better. The one and only Superannuation keeps digging stuff up that just has to be shared with Kotaku readers. Today, we're looking to the future... a very weird future that has Microsoft

One of Microsoft's big holiday-season Kinect games, Fable: The Journey, came out today. As our reviewer notes, it's not very good, because Microsoft's popular Kinect sensor often fails to properly detect the movement of the player trying to control the game.
Did you ever go to school with a kid that was way too into horses? Like, waaaaaay too into horses? I'm talking about the kind of kid who has horse posters on the wall, a horse lunchbox and a horse backpack. Because Fable: The Journey feels like a game made by and for that kid. Throw in janky, motion-controlled…
Forget the hero of Albion. Theresa—a prophetic seer who has appeared in all the previous Fable games—is not only hundreds of years old, but she likes to orchestrate things from the shadows. A character who commands true intrigue. She has visions of the future, but her motivations are always unclear. So she's a…
There are 19 million Kinects in the wild and very few good games to play on them. I think most people will say that Dance Central is the best (partially because it seems to work more than 75% of the time). What's second best?
Peter Molyneux, one of the most respected video game developers in the world and one of the top creative minds on the Xbox team, is leaving Microsoft and Lionhead Studios, Kotaku has learned.
Mike McCarthy, of Lionhead Studios, has for many a year now been working on the Fable series, bringing us some of the weirdest and most wonderful characters going around.
Fable: The Journey is an odd amalgam: a mix of on-the-rails shooter, of hand-waving magic, of Fable storytelling.
Fable III's PC version has been dated and, surprisingly, it's going to be available via Steam.
Someone broken into Peter Molyneux's car and stole his laptop, iPad and passport Thursday night. If you'd like to help out the creator of Fable, Black & White and more than a few game design whoppers you'll land a £1000 reward.
