The Dead Hamster was a community site for Lionhead Studios, presented in the style of an Albionite tavern. The site was brought to the forefront following the closure of the Lionhead Forums in 2012. While the site was not an official replacement for the forums, some developers from Lionhead Studios joined the community and occasionally imparted new and exclusive information. The Dead Hamster disappeared from its domain without notice some time in early 2015.
