When I got my limited edition Fable III it arrived the day before release, and yes, it arrived in the most epic box (including a pack of cards and a medallion). <----- GEEK ALERT!
And it is amazing! Here are some screenshots of the beginning, when you're a Princess (if you choose to be a girl <3) and you spend some time running around your castle. The interior in the castle is amazing.
In case you didn't already know, I'm obsessed with costume, and Fable III features some really cool designs. Everything in the game looks so beautiful; the towns, streets, walks, castles, it's all so visually lush. This is why I want to be in the games industry, the art team must just be so amazing. In fact, the creators of Fable III, Lionhead Studios, are just down the road in Guildford, so I need to get in touch and try to score an internship there. (SERIOUSLY, HOW AMAZING WOULD THAT BE??)
And even better, this week's CHOW is 'Design a Steampunk Superhero', which is basically Fable III! So I'm on it like a car bonnet. Did some quick Steampunk research sketches, into some typical Steampunk features, followed by some design thumbs!
All the best,
