Lionheart was named #3 Worst Game of the Year in the “Best of 2003” Awards in Computer Games Magazine (March 2004 issue).
Black Isle Studios used to code-name its projects after U.S. presidents and vice-presidents, an idea by Josh Sawyer. Since Black Isle was not the main developer for this title, the code-name was Project Quincy, a name never held by a U.S. president.
Long before Lionheart's title was even released, it was being referred to as Fallout Fantasy due to its use of the SPECIAL system (originally found in Fallout) in a fantasy setting. Because of the common alternative, this spawned a rather humorous, if short-lived misinformed following of people actually believing the next Fallout game would take place in a fantasy setting.
