Game box art challenge?

Nyet. Here’s the next one; I’m fairly certain this will give it away.

King’s Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella

Some Napoleonic game with a fantasy castle through the wyrmwoods? :O


Correct! This was the last King’s Quest game that my sister and I played together. Not for any tragic reason; she’s older than me, and this hit right around when she started losing interest in videogames. So I remember it really well, and have really fond memories of it. Joke’s on her, though - not only did I keep playing videogames, I now make them for a living!

That was such a remarkable game from Sierra at its height.

Next up:

Total War Shogun 2?

Not TW Shogun 2.

Army Men

Edit: Well shit, I guessed this before the second reveal but the thread hadn’t refreshed. This is certainly not Army Men.

Guess again. I absolve you from the rule.

Kohan: Armies of Airmahn

Not Kohan.


That’s Buck Rogers!

Specifically, Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday the first of (sadly only) two entries that SSI made putting its famed Gold Box engine in space. This remains my favorite space RPG of all time. (I never played the second, Matrix Cubed, because SSI never released the Amiga version despite it being apparently finished or nearly so.)

Is the cover a Franzetta? I remember it being so striking because it resembled all the fantasy material I was devouring at that time in my youth.

Anyhow, I’ll have a cover up soon.

Okay, I don’t think this one has been done before.
