Ubisoft TMs 1666

THQ has filed a "video game software" trademark registration in the U.S. for 1666, reports GameSpot. They say the publisher did not respond to their request for comment on this, but note that 1666 was the year of the Great Fire of London.

Might be cool. Underused setting anyway.

Maybe it's a Salem ripoff, which would be a shame because seatribe have put all their love into it.

Well fuck. I wrote my first novel last year, called 1666. I've been working on a game concept to go with it.

Curse my blasted luck.

How cool (sarcasm).  
If you were right, I would be agreeing with you.

Trademark registration is not news.

Ok I've found a song and movie called "The night the lights went out in Georgia" but what has it got to do with 1666???

Oh and it's THQ btw - reported in the Gamespot article. I wonder if this has anything to do with a reworking of the "Gotham by Gaslight" game which was THQ.

If it's Ubisoft, maybe Anno 1666? It's a break from their naming system (adds up to 9) but they've just about exhausted that anyway.

Like like the mission - Baby Soup - where you save the babies by putting them in the water towers.

Too much?

Oh possibilities here - but not if they just do a run away from the fire or put out the fire jobby. London was also suffering the plague at the time - turn that from illness to supernatural, and you could have some good old medieval undead hunting cumulating in the fire and it could be kinda fun.

(yes I know the "great plague" had pretty much finished before the fire).
