Game box art challenge?


#2723

Nothing?


#2724

Ok this may be more obscure than I thought, I played it a long time ago and have had the box all this time so it’s very familiar to me. Come to think of it I haven’t heard much talk since I played it, lets jump ahead and reveal two more frames
.


#2725

Easy now not everyone all at once (jumping 2 steps ahead again)


#2726

More


#2727

Ooooh that does look extremely familiar. KULT?


#2728

Finally someone ventures a guess! But… it’s not KULT I’m afraid.

Posting last frame, only title and developer/publisher blocked out now.


#2729

Definitely never seen that one before!


#2730

oh no my bad sorry! I just looked it up and it is indeed KULT!

> KULT: The Temple of Flying Saucers is a graphic adventure game, released in 1989 by Exxos. The American version was sold under the title Chamber of the Sci-Mutant Priestess

Take it away Khelavaster!

Ah, the old name-switcheroo trick! :-P

KULT is without a question one of the more bizarre adventures I’ve ever played. Your main companion throughout the game is a talking fetus who is in fact some kind of alien. I think the game was based on a comic and there was very little explanation of what was going on. The graphics were striking but the puzzles were tough and obscure. Anyway, it was a memorable experience!


#2732

Let’s see how many people know this one. I own the box but never played it myself.


#2733

Very familiar, I’m sure I played this too.


#2734

I’m afraid the blurb gives it away!


#2735

That description gave away what I was suspecting: this must be Duke Nukem 3D


#2736

Were genres still so vaguely defined in those days that an FPS would be called an ‘adventure’?


#2737

Chronomaster?


#2738

Tomb Raider was an adventure game back then. Seems likely!


#2739

And @copeknight gets it! I knew the blurb was just too obvious! :-P


#2740

I didn’t need the blurb. I know that cover even though I never played the game. I miss Roger Zelazny!

Here we go:


#2741

Yeah, it’s kind of a running joke, the blurb was terribly generic :-P
That bit you posted looks very familiar, can’t pinpoint it yet…


#2742

Sid Meier’s Railroads!
