Wow, well done to mattyb83, who got yesterday's ScribbleTaku, almost as the last minute. Nicely done.

Good luck with today's drawing!

ScribbleTaku is Kotaku’s newest lunchtime game. We give ourselves 30 seconds to draw an old game on a sticky note, and it’s your job to guess what it is! Come back every day at noon for a new ScribbleTaku! Feel like sending one in? Shoot us an email here.


    Gotta be an RTS, like perhaps Command and Conquer?

      That's my guess too (RTS) but I have seen similar looking structures in games like Xevious, and Doom even (on the map screen between levels). Probably seen similar elsewhere too, but those are the first 2 that jump to mind.
      As for my guess on what it actually is...? No clue really.. I'm gonna take a stab and say perhaps Total Annihallation? No doubt wrong, but I can't remember what the units/buildings even looked like in that game anymore! Also looks similar to some building from Dune2. Possibly house ordos?
      Whatever.. I know none of those will be correct, but fun to think back like that anyway ;)

        I think you've got it with Xevious. You couldn't shoot through those volcanoe looking things so you had to line up the middle with a bomb.

        Really? Xevious has a purely top down view. Maybe Xevious 3D? But I don't remember there being any hexagonally arranged bases.

          Yeah I believe the ones in xevious (not sure of 3d) were actually only 4 bits around the centre

    Civilization 1? A city surrounded by volcanoes.

    Star Ocean?

    Not sure, I will guess Zaxxon.

    Or Super Zaxxon even.

    Commander Keen

    Ima go with supreme commander. It reminds me of the adjoining bonus when powering buildings

    Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, or possibly its expansion pack Alien Crossfire - it looks remarkably like one of the tile refinements.


    As annoying as I am worried I am getting

    I am still going to guess Superman 64

    Earth 2150

    Can't believe no one has guessed the right answer yet: The Dig.

    It seems so familiar, yet I just can't pick it. If no one here has it, I'd be happy to get a clue or extra picture tomorrow.

    Reminds me of GDI's power plants from Tiberian Sun.

    Now I'm thinking it could be like a moon base / colony from a space game.
    Masters of Orion 2! or Alpha Centauri?
