Lionhead Puts Up Che Guevara Splash Page

Try to make sense of this one: Peter Molyneux’s Lionhead Studios has put up a teaser splash page with… famous Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara?

Now, Peter Molyneux is known for being a bit of an oddball much in the same way that a brick isn’t very buoyant. Whether it’s making a game where you train a giant monkey monster, or creating a virtual 12-year-old British boy, Molyneux has always marched to the beat of his own drum.

So I suppose if there’s anyone in the industry who might be working on a project involving (in)famous Argentinian revolutionary Che Guevara, it’d be him. Early this morning, the official Lionhead Twitter tweeted … well, just the company’s website.

A trip to said website finds the iconic image of Che (as seen on many a college student’s dorm wall), along with a quote: “At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love.”

Clicking the thumbs up below the image takes you to a page labeled “Followers,” while the thumbs down takes you to “Subjects” – though at the moment, the two pages seem to be identical. I can’t quite decipher what this all means, though perhaps it’s just the idea of a commercial videogame about a famously anti-capitalist revolutionary that boggles my mind.

Oh, there’s also a “6” behind the image, so is probably yet another countdown clock. Whatever it is, we might well expect an announcement at next week’s Gamescom in Cologne.
