No Diggity: The American Civil War

No más: The American Civil War

I’m trying to think of a historical Civil War quote that would fit there, but drawing a blank.

Pretty sure I know this one. Though it predates my strategy game years, No Greater Glory is an old Civil War game I know exists.

That is right! It was a very unique approach IIRC. It was a wargame but also simulated political aspects. (Like appointing cabinet members maybe?)

It was by Ed Bever who used, I think, a similar system in an American Revolution game published a few years earlier (late ‘80s vs. early ‘90s) by Britannica Software.

I found it interesting but never spent tons of time with it. Unfortunately it was one of SSI’s last Amiga games and was when they had basically washed their hands of it. (Notice that the A3000 isn’t even on the list of supported machines on the box.)

Edit: Also note that one of the requirements is “color monitor” which seems completely inappropriate for an Amiga. It’s like 1990s SSI wasn’t aware of the difference between the color-only Amiga and the ST where monochrome was a thing (and which few games supported although SSI’s first ST conversions (Phantasie I and II) actually did).

That SSI logo and that Amiga sticker felt like an alternate dimension to European teen me.

@CraigM you gonna post a box?

That is not how I pictured you at all.

I have three hands, two legs, and 12 numbers just like everybody else.

To fill the gap, here’s one to guess.

Old Timey Toothpaste Cap tycoon.

Next!

X-Wing vs Tie Fighter

Nope!

I’ll post the next shot in order to move things along -

No More Heroes?

Phantasmagoria?

Correct!

Man, Sierra hyped this game so much pre release as the next big thing. Especially since it was such a huge departure for Roberta Williams. I really wanted to like it, but I found it mostly dreadful. Sierra’s next attempt at an FMV game, Beast Within, was far better. To be frank, I think it has an even better box cover, too, but I couldn’t find a really good shot of it, and I no longer have the box.

I’ve seen this cover so much, but i never would have been able to guess it , as i am still unable to process what it represents or even evokes.
