Hint: It's a new game, so new it isn't even officially released yet.

If it's not even released yet, how are we supposed to guess?

In their defence, there's no actual clear rules for these games, but yes I agree it should be a game/film/tv show that's been released, otherwise we open the floodgates to cancelled games, films still being shot and so on. Also, please tell me that isn't a game you're promoting for!

Figured someone might recognize it as it's the work of some well-known veterans when it comes to adventure games. There is a demo available, it's currently in beta testing, so it's not necessarily that hard to guess.

CaptainD, nope, but that's not too far off, actually!

Naughty Chrille! It's the Hero-U alpha/beta. Mandle can have it, as he basically guessed it without naming it.

I remember someone posting a screenshot of a Hero's Duty from Wreck it Ralph. That game doesn't even exist as a real game! Yet no one had any problem with it, and it was guessed quickly.
So, I think it depends on whether or not the game was released, and if it isn't, is it well known.

Well, they certainly thought it was well known, so I disagree, but I don't make the rules!

And you also posted another game which was yet to appear quite recently. :wink:

So, it's been done before, and I don't understand why people suddenly started complaining about guessing games not yet released. :=

    Short memories haha.

    I did think that was a weird entry, more like we were trying to work out the letters rather than actually recognising the image.

    Right, Mandle get a handle on this, post a picture already! :P

Can we use games that are actually released from now on?

TBH I think that would be nice - unless maybe it's stated that the game in question is still in production etc?

Wasn't that kind of a fun challenge for a change though?

Heh-heh, I'm surprised nobody mentioned the time I put up a screenie of Polybius, a game that has probably never existed, well the original at least.

Anyway, here's a cropped one:

Dragon's Lair?

Not cropped quite enough though it seems...

I didn't see the sword icon in the bottom right until I posted it full-size. Did that give it away?

Over to you!

Given the play-style of Dragon's Lair, I think it's that I've seen that backdrop too many times.
