Space Quest - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

In Space No One Can Hear You Clean, er, Scream. But if you post in this forum about Space Quest - someone's sure to hear you. I think. Try it, anyway!

Space Quest - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

Post by Tawmis » Tue May 14, 2013 2:33 pm

Because the original Sierra Screen Shot Game has exceeded 200 pages; I spoke with Collector and thought it would be fun to create individual "game" themed screen shot games. This would also allow people who are more familiar with specific games to feel more comfortable trying to guess the screen shots.

So the idea of the game is, you post a cropped screen shot from one of the games for this section of the forum (in this case, SPACE QUEST). Everyone's entitled to guess; and gets one guess only, until they're told that they're wrong or correct. The correct guess allows that person who guessed correctly to post their cropped screen shot for others to guess.

But because this version limits it to the games; it would go too quick trying to guess which game it's from. Instead, there's two alternate ways to guess the cropped screen shot being shown. You can either 1. Post the full screen as your guess (from which the screen capture is coming from, which is usually a sure win, if you got the right screen). Or 2. You can write down a text explanation of the screen shot's location. (For example, you might say, "That cropped screen shot is from GAME01, it's the scene where the CHARACTER'S HOUSE is on fire." or something like, "That's GAME01, where the INVENTORY ITEM is picked up from." Something that shows you know - or think you know! - where that screen crop shot is from). NOTE: if you post a screen shot answer, you do not need to say which game it's from. However, if you're answering by text (no screen shot), then you will have to guess the game and the location of the screenshot.

You can share this on twitter (or FB, or where ever to get others to join us here) by using the url: http://tinyurl.com/SQScreen

Yeah that one is painfully easy (but one of my favorite screen shots from the older SQ game; so much detail with so few colors!) But yes, clearly correct again!

Well for this game, if you post the right image, I have ruled out having to guess the game. Because there's some like GK, where it's 3 games only - and all three are drastically different - that it'd be easy to tell which game it came from.

In case you were really asking and not just challenging Rudy, a hint is that it is too detailed for AGI, but still not VGA.

Hmmm... that looks like It's somewhere in the supercomputer in SQIV, but I don't have access to the game now to pinpoint it.

It is not from the supercomputer in SQ4.

well the attachment itself is called "sq2.jpg," so I would guess sq2, but that also doesn't look like AGI, so I doubt it. I have no idea WHERE though either, which is also a requirement of the game..

Yeah, ignore the filename; that just means it's the second file in my Space Quest screenshot folder. This is from a VGA Space Quest game.
