Fabled Lands: The MMO that Never Was

Continuing UK Games Week, Joe looks at one British game which never made it to shelves - an Eidos MMO based on the Fabled Lands gamebooks. With help from the team we learn how the game got stuck in development hell and what the finished game might have been like.
