Game box art challenge?


#1442

Yeah, it starts to feel like the movie thread when people start posting black and white movies. :P


#1443

It’s why, whenever I get the call in this or the frame game, I nominally limit myself to the Gamecube era or newer. Let other people pick the old fogey games ;)


#1444

Okay, here goes … Generally, mine are guessed in the first or second clue. I have little doubt that trend will continue here.


#1445

King’s Bounty.

[don’t ask me to explain this logic unless i happen to be right in which case i will explain.]


#1446

It’s very easy to cheat!
Like @arrendek, I downloaded all the cover art of all the games in the world and programmed a piece of software to look for colour codes based on an approximate state of coordinates splitted into zones… But enough said!

Happened to me too !

@nijimeijer, this is the game box art, not the frame game - although that is one weird aspect ratio for a screenshot…


#1447

Kinda looks like a slice of a Commando screenshot, so I’ll guess that.


#1448

Neither King’s Bounty nor Commando.


#1449

I’ll try Knights of Eisenwald.


#1450

I don’t know if we were thinking the same way but I had the same guess!


#1451

Hey, you know how to cheat too. WINK


#1452

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.


#1453

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!


#1454

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.


#1456


#1457

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.
