Fable III developer Lionhead is aware that the game shipped with a number of bugs and is working on patches.
A post on the studio's official website explained, "Of course as with any videogame there are some people with technical issues. That's bound to happen of course with a game the size of Fable, our poor testers worked flat out but if something slips through the nets, then don't panic!"
It wants any gamers who spot glitches to report them via a dedicated web page it has set up. It promises to keep a close on user feedback but won't commit to a timescale for an update.
"If you do experience a corrupt save game and there is no work around," Lionhead added, "then all I can personally recommend you do is start a new game and apologise for any stress this might cause. We really do feel for you if this happens!"
Ah, there goes that warm fuzzy feeling.
The developer also announced it is trying to get the Kingmaker app up and running again. Apparently it fell over last week and won't allow users to log in.
Fable III launched last week and has been selling rather well, going straight into the UK all-formats chart at number one. Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell paid homage to Lionhead's regal effort, stumping up a princely 8/10.
