Game box art challenge?


#1451

Hey, you know how to cheat too. WINK

The terrible thing about it is I can’t even begin to think of a practical solution, which makes me mightily curious about the means to achieve it - and scared, if it’s about something computer are able to do I wasn’t aware of.
Like with most intriguing secrets, I probably would be disappointed by the way of doing it if I learned it though.

In any case, you put a game in the game box art challenge game, as far as I am concerned!
Need to stop thinking about it now, since I don’t have the adequate knowledge anyway.

If you figure it out you’ll be REALLY disappointed. When I figured it out I started testing and about 85% of the things posted here I can get with the first frame.

I’m not helping, am I?

Here, look at this kitten!

I won’t tell people they should play old C64 games, but durnit, some black and white movies must be seen!


#1455

Just admit you built a planet-sized computer to solve the problem. You’re not fooling anyone.

Which game has such crappy tiles on the box? It looks RTSy…

Empire Earth 2?


#1458

It looks like the ground to Banished to me. Is it Banished? Did that even have a box?


#1459

Nothing correct yet.


#1460

Here’s the next clue before I forget and go to bed.


#1461

Hm, gonna jump ahead to one that’s pretty revealing, as no one is biting.


#1462

I have no idea. Zork?


#1463

It came from the lands of lore.


#1464

Transylvania? Was that ever in a box? It might have been from the baggie era.


#1465

@Pod, @Left_Empty, @CaseyRobinson - Nope.


#1466

Another; probably final clue. If this one doesn’t give it away, no one’s gonna guess.


#1467

Far Cry Nosferatu

I suppose I’ll call this one done! Admittedly, it’s a weird one -

On the surface, this looks like almost a cheat - an advergame, from Burger King. They made three of these (I played this one and Big Bumpin’); surprisingly, they said they sold over 3m units (total across all three). These things were heavily advertised, and I admit - I grabbed them out of curiosity, and for easy Achievements! I figured with that kind of public exposure, weird or not, someone else MUST have played it.

Hmmm, this means I have to go again, right? I’ll put up another shot in a few hours (or in the morning if I pass out).


#1469

Totally think you could have done one more reveal on that one, for whatever it’s worth.

I’d never have thought I could be so unaware of the existence of something released outside of Britain on a system that is not the Sinclair Spectrum!
