I told you it was going to be a bit more involved. These games are all quite recent (released within the last three to five years) and are all PC games. So, to make things harder, I’ve given you a whole bunch of games to identify and have shrunk the screenshots down to 400×300. On the other hand, I’ve grouped the nine games into three logical groups so in the end it shouldn’t be too hard to figure them out.
Enjoy! If you are the first person to name all nine games and their developers, I will name a kitten after you.
Point? No, I wasn’t really trying to make a point. Why do you ask?
Heh, I’m not even trying. One I know, a couple I could hazard a guess at.
Warcraft 3, Blizzard
Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War, Relic Games?
Battlefield 2, Digital Illusions CE
Call of Duty 4, Infinity Ward
Counter-Strike Source, Valve
The Settlers: Rise of an Empire, Blue Byte Software
Anno 1701, Related Designs
Sid Meier’s Civilization 4, Firaxis Games
It seems that I cant crack that 2nd RTS nut 8(
That second RTS looks familiar, but I can’t quite get it. I’m happy to have known all the strategy games, though.
Somehow I have this feeling the second one could be heroes of might & magic, but have never played any of them..
No, this is not heroes. Heroes is a turn-based strategy, while this game is in the RTS category.
Irwin, I’m going to declare you the winner even if someone else gets that last RTS. You shall have a kitten named after you!
Irwin kind of sounds like a cat, actually .. =)
For the record, RTS 2 was Spellforce 2. And did anyone actually pick up on the point I was trying to make?
apart from games looking the same?
Excellent! Somebody got it! Good Lord, but there’s a lot of copycat art direction out there.
Oh, darn! I was waiting all this time for NTG 50, and I missed it!
I was going to guess Total Annihilation: Kingdoms for RTS #2, but I knew it wasn’t right. That game also looks similar, though. B-)
