Remember This? [Updated]

In Mark's absence, and given my status as the avowed office retro nut, I've been handed the task of picking today's game image. Can you guess the game from this fragmentary shot?

Note: I'll be hanging around my usual haunt at Gizmodo Australia most of the afternoon, so won't be checking answers every micro-second, so you may have to wait slightly longer than normal for confirmation. If I've hit the holy grail of subtle images (highly unlikely based on past Kotaku reader performance — I suspect I'll be lucky if this lasts two minutes) then I'll update with another clue later in the afternoon.

Updated: Wow — Given some of the challenges that have tumbled like weeds in the past, I'm surprised that nobody's picked up this one. So I'll do another image based on the original shot, to give a bit more of a clue.

Go to it!


    Final Fantasy 7?


    The Dig?

      Oi! You're the editor! Cut that out!

      By the way, I think it's 'The Legend of Dragoon.'

      And yes, I have a copy of that rare gem.

        so do i.

        Gosh that game is fantastic. Even with the horrible load times to get into the menu screen.

          And the errors in the dialogue (I actually think Rose was talking once but the name said Dart). But you are right. That game is fantastic.

          Work cannot finish soon enough as I have a sudden urge to play it now.

          LoD is the worst game ever made.

            go away Jackson.

            Yes, there were lots of typos. Like 'Fanni' and 'Fahni', same place, different spellings in dialogue/map/menu.

    But for a proper guess, Tyrian? Looks kinda like the end screen with the impaled head.

    Final Fantasy 8 ?

    Wow. Nobody's anywhere close (and for what it's worth, Tracey's not in the office today, so she's got no idea what I've picked). Mostly wrong era, for a start.

    Then again, I have been described as a prick in the office based on what it actually is, so I'll give another clue: Read what I've written carefully.

      Oh boy I bet it's a game about nuts!

        Only in as much as I may be kicked in the... by some folks when they work out what it is.

    Or is it the title screen for Twisted Metal Black?

    hrmm, I'm guessing Descent. Man those games were fun.

    I feel like I've seen those textures before but I just can't place them...

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - snes

    Hexen II

    Doom 2

    master of orion?
    master of orion 2?

    Duke Nukem 3D?


    Daikatana? If it is Daikatana you had better explain yourself for soiling our eyes.
