Game box art challenge?


#3986

Fyi you’re meant to type your guess in.


#3987

I’m shocked @Gordon_Cameron hasn’t beaten me to this, but… Colonial Conquest by SSI? For the record, the glorious mustaches give this one away, but I didn’t see it until just now. =)


#3988

That’s right. Far and away my favorite game of its era.


#3989

I played that game a lot, but in, ahem, a pirated version (sorry, misspent youth) and am not very familiar with the box art.


#3990

Yeah, it truly was a great game, one of my all time faves from that era. And @Gordon_Cameron, yep, I have many games that I never knew the box art of for the same reason, haha, but this one I actually bought back in the day (and still have in great condition).

I’ll think of a game and post tomorrow, none immediately coming to mind. =/


#3991

Ok, here we go!


#3992

Rockstar Ate My Hamster?


#3993

Yes Prime Minister?


#3994

In the ballpark…


#3995

SSI’s President Elect. They had at least two releases (one in 1988, one earlier). Don’t know which one this is.


#3996

It was going to be 1988 but that doesn’t really matter, either was fine. Figured I’d try something topical. Art is on the other computer, I’ll edit this thread with it in a few.

You’re up!

Edit: The revealed box art:


#3997

I’m traveling this week so I probably won’t have one posted until Saturday.

I remember being REALLY FRUSTRATED that no matter what i did in president elect, reagan always won.

EDIT: exhausted from driving. Will post tomorrow.


#3998

Another “no squinting required” special. Will reveal the company name in a day if no one gets it.


#3999

You could reveal the game’s name, in my case!


#4000

Two hints.


#4001

No guesses?


#4002

I haven’t even ever heard of the publisher :O


#4003

Oh well.

The answer is:


Empire I: World Builders, by David Mullich. Same author (and publisher) as The Prisoner


#4004

This reads like Brendon Chung’s take on Starflight (Warning: nowhere as good as it may sound).


#4005

I’ll post an easier one tomorrow.
