Correct. I suspect some detective work (or a sneaky-googly-imagey!) was required to come up with the answer. I also would have accepted "Aurora Watching", "Gorky 17: Aurora Watching", or "Soldier Elite: Zero Hour" as correct answers.

It's the final game in the "Gorky 17" series ("Gorky 17"/"Odium" being the first, followed by "Gorky 17: Beyond Honor") by Metropolis Software, who are now part of CD Projekt RED, the developers of "The Witcher" games. I played it back when in was first released (as "Aurora Watching"), and, despite some wonky AI and awkward controls, I found it to be a decent stealth game.

It's Settlers!
it's an Amiga game maybe around 1994.

1993, and it was also on PC, but it's Settlers of course, an intro scene.

I guess Commander Keen, but I can't tell which one...

EDIT (I googled Commander Keen to see if I could remember which one- after guessing not before! and there is an ONLINE play of it now! OMG! http://www.play.vg/games/148-Comm ) :shocked:

Sorry, no Commander Keen involved in this game. But 'faster than light' is a big hint :wink:

It's some sort of Star Trek game... I spy the Enterprise and the Federation logo. I'd have to cheat to know more than that now!

I've only had PCs and BBC Micros (my first console was the PS2) and I never had an Atari or anything so if it ain't PC I don't knoooow! :D Well, I think we briefly had a speccy and an old Apple Macintosh, but I don't think I ever used them, they were just my dad's...

So yeah, without cheating all I can say is it's a TREK game! :D

Not a Trek game, even though I had also thought so when I first saw the screen...

Google FTL ---> wiki FTL --> FTL games -> SunDog ... ;)

Oh help! Guess it's my turn! :)

I cropped this a "bit" as I think it's a very easy one... I never finished this one though, as far as I remember! :/
