The goal of this ludicrously epic action-RPG is to find out who kidnapped your folks and killed your pooch (no, really). Along the way, your character will wither with age, sprout muscles if he wields big weapons, fuss with daily chores like shaving, and even influence the next generation of adventurers. "You could go into a town and see kids idolizing you by getting your same hairstyle," says Peter Molyneux, managing director of Lionhead Studios (satellite studio Big Blue Box is making Project Ego). "It makes you feel tike a hero. That's the point of this game." Subquests have you doing everything from hunting werewolves, to escaping a dungeon (you only get one chance a year--screw up and you'll get old quick), to finding a gal and settling down. Be warned, though: This game won't let you linger. "We have to think of ways to encourage you to continue the quest and be a hero," Molyneux says, "so that may mean we have to kill your family off." No release has been set other than "when it's ready" sometime next year.
