Once upon a time, in a land far far away (Guildford) there was a game of myth and magic. The destiny of a great studio rested on the shoulders of few (hundred) developers.
Known by many titles ... artist, programmer, chicken chaser, bastard … collectively they went by the moniker ‘Lions’. Valiantly battling the demons of bugs and deadlines as they sought that illusive grail of fun.
But alas, they succumbed to the fate that oft befalls many a heroic developer. A game shelved, a team scattered, their Fable ended. Only to be recounted many times across the watering holes of this land we call the internet.
As their Legends slip into the sands of time, so it rests upon your humble scribe to chronicle some of his adventures whilst exploring new lands with those brave few.
A journey into the depths of Monte Carlo, lost alone in a forest of trees (oh so many trees!), searching for a way out.
Tales of triumph and failure, to inspire and to guide … or perhaps, to serve as a warning for the next foolhardy traveller who is thinking of taking this less travelled road!
