Lionhead Studio Posts Image for #NationalCleavageDay, Fans Question Taste
Lionhead Studios, the team behind the Fable games, has put out its own image for #NationalCleavageDay. The image, which went out over their official Twitter account, is of a voluptuous young woman holding two pints of alcohol, with the words "The Foaming Jugs" overhead. Her cups runneth over.
The image has garnered some controversy for fans, many of whom commented that they had to make sure this was the official Twitter account for the studio (it is).
In response to several comments claiming this post was insensitive due to the current climate in games (especially in regards to the representation of women) the account posted this image:
The accompanying tweet read:
Just to be clear, we don't descriminate...[sic]
Both images are "from the archives," at Lionhead; the Foaming Jugs sign is a pub sign from Fable 2 and the "bum one" is from Valentines Day a few years ago.
Within an hour of posting, all images and references were removed from Twitter.
Lionhead Studios next title is Fables Legend, an upcoming Free-to-Play game for the Xbox One.
