Gladius Spotlight Online 09 May, 2002, 12:30 / 9 comments

I updated 5 minutes too soon. The website for Gladius is online, complete with seven in-game screenshots and nine pieces of nice looking concept art. The logo for Gladius is also revealed, being a big capital "GLADIUS." I would have preferred "GLADIVS" sort of, but I'm a moron.

Andrew has pointed out that the third E3 teaser LucasArts released doesn't appear on the Gladius site. Also of note: those expecting a secret 8th game because of the 8 shadows on the LucasArts E3 page, the two Gladius characters have taken up two of the shadows. Only seven games it seems. Anyhow, check out Gladius. The game is being developed entirely in-house at LucasArts, by the way.

    I agree about the GLADIVS thing. Or at least a different font.

    Jake, letter U was introduced by, and during the reign of Claudius -- that dude was one of the Caesars (Julius, Octavian Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, CLAUDIUS, and Nero), so as long as the game is set after 45-ish AD, U is well justified a letter.

    Notice, if you will, the SEVEN images down the left hand side of the page. This implies SEVEN new games, not the EIGHT suggested on the E3 forum page. Also check out the EIGHT sillouhettes. 2 are highlighted. One of the ones in dark (extreme left) is Jango Fett. The one to the right of the RTX guy looks like the feller from the image posted not so long ago. The rest I do not know.

    Well, the ones I thought would be for Gladius weren't, so I've got no idea. :)
