New Original Game: Gladius? 07 Mar, 2002, 14:23 / 18 comments

It seems that LucasArts may be working on a new original game entitled Gladius, according to observant readers of TheForce.net. On October of 2001, LucasArts filed to protect the trademark name of "Gladius" as a software title. The trademark information, which can be viewed at this page, includes such keywords as "science fiction games", "films", "music", "CD-ROMs", "DVD-ROMs", and more.

The use of both CD-ROM and DVD-ROM technology suggest that this might be a PC and console title. Also, the lack of any Star Wars references in the trademark suggests that it may be an original title. TheForce.net thinks this could be the new original title from Planet Moon that was recently announced. Hopefully, if this game is indeed in production, we will hear more about it in the coming months.

    There's a font called Georgia Ref that looks EXACTLY like the Dig logo. I don't know if it was the one Lucasarts used but it is an exact match.
    If you don't believe me see if you've got the font and then go into a word processor, type "DIG" in Georgia Ref, and make it into a large size. If anyone is curious and doesn't have the font I can email it. The Gladius logo looks like Georgia Ref too. I just noticed it because I use Georgia Ref a lot. It's a nice font. I don't ever use Times New Roman so maybe they're the same, I dunno, I thought it was a tad bit weird.

    Funny that there's an image too: See, Gladius's logo is in Times New Roman!!

    I don't think that really means anything, though. Look at this.

    Exactly! That's just how the logo appeared in game! My joking comment was right on!!!

    The Dig logo was in Times New Roman also but was compressed 8% in height.

    Duh, it's Herc's Adventures 2. It HAS to be.

    I hope it's a sequel to The Dig, although I doubt it judging by the title.
  • Metallus on 07 Mar, 2002, 18:22…
    Factoid: Gladius is latin for sword as well as ...man...parts...
  • SpaceMonkey on 08 Mar, 2002, 01:43…
    Not to be confused with Gladioli. Although it is also known as a sword lily.

    Another thought... they said they were working on (at minimum) an original title and a sequel, right? Couldn't this also be a sequel to The Dig?
