2017 Frame Game


#1868

I have no idea what this is, but I’m definitely intrigued by it. Unfortunately it looks like it plays in real time?


#1869

You may lose this round @Left_Empty, I couldn’t even find what this was using GIS.


#1870

Chroma Squad? I think I’m wrong.


#1871

Some weird old version of The Battle for Wesnoth?


#1872

Hehe, first thing I thought when I saw the screenshot… only I hoped for a weird new version!


#1873

It was from the tutorial of Lost Technology, a game recommended by @Juan_Raigada.
It is indeed real-time, a hands-off addictive RTS game, with a very light strategic layer reminiding of Koei games.
It is let down by horrible controls (an RTS without any keyboard shortcuts, basically), and a butcher work of an English translation, a bombardment of tongue in cheek jokes by someone who should probably work on his own game instead?

So, I go for another round…


#1874

Moon Patrol?


#1875

Tumduuumdum tudutudutudutudum!

That was quick!


#1876

Hah, I recognized it instantly too. I remember playing that one on arcades! I’m old.

Anyway, great pick!


#1877

Haha, yeah, those three balled bastards piss me off. =)

I’m struggling figuring out what to pick. Something super obscure, or a personal favorite game that will no doubt be figured out quickly?


#1878

I always pick games I want to talk about and/or share with people here, no matter how easy or hard they might be.


#1879

Ok, here we go. This is a game that I don’t expect to be figured out quickly, but it is personally significant for me at least…


#1880

Age of Empires 2


#1881

Looks like a light gun style shooter.


#1882

Nope.

Definitely had shooting elements, but wasn’t light gun based. Mouse if I recall correctly.

Next hint – a protagonist (one of two) appears!


#1883

Alone in the Dark 3? I don’t remember the game being that high definition, or even taking place during the day for that matter.


#1884

Redguard?


#1885

Alone in the dark?


#1886

Not Alone in the Dark or Redguard. I had totally forgotten about Redguard, loved that game (or, at least, the world)! Game is 800x600.

Next hint, showing some UI:


#1887

Is it Red Dead Revolver?
