Let's recap the Lionhead homepage countdown. First, Che 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 was also controversial for his time (well, it was a civil war), but he 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 and reinforces that theme. Any clues on what we're dealing with other than yet another homepage countdown?
