Quiz: Name that game!

I figured it is high time to post my overdue quiz. Rather than screenshots/characters or details from games like @LowLevel used to do, these are all artistic impressions done by one of my kids at age 5 or 6 years old.

I might throw in a few extra, more recent ones later, but at the risk that no one here is left to join the quiz… (@PiecesOfKate, @milanfahrnholz… you still there?), better to kick it off with these three.

Rules are :

  • for each picture, you need to guess what (adventure) game it is
  • the same game may be the correct answer for more than 1 picture.
  • Additional questions may be added by me until November 15th (depending on said offspring’s artistic output) !!
  • PM me your answers before 1st of December 2019
  • since questions may be added, you can update your guesses until 1st of December 2019. But only your latest guess will count!
  • I will announce the correct answers, the winner and price afterwards before 2020 rolls around.
  • relatives of mine are not eligible to win a price, obviously
  • bribes may be considered, however :wink:

Great Idea! And it’s not that easy - at least for me. :slight_smile:

Yeah, where are you? We are missing you all! :slight_smile:

Well, if you’re showing bad NES titles…

Or to put it another way, can these be any games or just adventure games?

I think I got #2. The others are… whoa. Nice drawings though :laughing:

The second picture had me wondering whether there’s a video game adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House.

No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more.

Same here. :slight_smile:

It is a safe bet to say they are all adventure games. (See rules)

I imagine I sent in the same guess too. Still, I like the Ghidora idea. :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok, #2 features a three headed monkey, so it’s easy.
Let me guess…
#1: those circles look like tables, with knives and forks. But I can’t figure out which adventure game could be.
#3: maybe… Machinarium

Don’t give too much hints if you would like to win. :wink:

@ZakPhoenixMcKracken @Someone My theories for the third were going in the same direction. But more generic like Samarost/Machinarium/Chuchel. Seemed like a bit of a dead end though. :slight_smile:

The first looks a bit like https://osmos-game.com/ (not an adventure)

#2 is basically a screenshot from the game, but the other two… no idea.

I’d say number 3 is… oh well that’s now in a private message.

Number 1… no idea.

The idea is to not spoil anything for the others (aka reduce your own odds at winning).

Confusing everyone with misleading theories about the games is highly encouraged however! :joy:

So far: no one has guessed everything right, but all pictures have been guessed correctly at least ones when I combine all the answers here and in the tens of PMs I received so far.

Clarification to the rules: Only answers by PM will be taken into account.
