If Irrational Games' call for spoken speculation on the topic of Irrational Games' next game on popular message board NeoGAF wasn't enough to convince you that the studio is poised to reveal its latest in the near future, perhaps the fact that its asking the enthusiast press to hit a New York-based event in mid-August might. But if you're still skeptical, take a gander at this teaser Web site. It's a seemingly official creation whose URL includes the project name of Irrational's forthcoming game, "Icarus." One wouldn't drum up this anticipation for nothing, right? RIGHT?
The site, What is Icarus, begs the big question in its URL, but there is no answer--yet, at least. For now it's just a splash page with a decent-sized fleck and a sober message that springs forth if you gape at said mysterious fleck for far too long.
== TEASER ==As Joystiq points out, the domain registration of the site doesn't reveal an Irrational connection. It should be noted though that the site's URL and its nameservers, which are mapped to Take-Two and Rockstar Games, point towards this page being real deal.
So, what is Icarus? We'll know soon enough, be it from a far more overt webpage tease fans consume and puzzle out, or as a result of the event on August 11. In the meantime, though, what do you believe Irrational is working on? Will it be something we'll readily be able to associate with Irrational? That is to say, will it be something that builds on the atmospheric and RPG-light mechanics the studio has fiddled with for so long?
