    See, I should have gone for something more obscure.

    Your turn Alphadrop.

    Yea, I can't tell if Alpha's is an ingame screenshot of an RTS or a cutscene? Hint?

    Both actually, the game uses a really weird semi cutscene thing using the level but pre-rendering it and also ingame models which looks kinda weird as it's a RTS so close ups look blocky.
    Looks great as a screenie though. :V

    I'm not 100% sure, but alpha's screenie looks suspiciously like Rise of Legends.

    Ugh, I just had to guess right. You got me thinking what to post. So I decided against anything too obscure for you guys to know, and went with one of my favorite games instead:

    It looks a bit like SOASE, but I'm going to guess EVE online?

    the ui does not look anything like AI Total War, but that ship to the bottom left of the sun looks like a leech starship from that.

    Space Rangers 2 one of the best games I've ever played. Loved it in every way a person can.



    Sincerely,

    Both Dutch and VD technically got it right, but VD was more precise so he - already took - his turn.

    It is indeed the second Space Rangers, one of the most delightful TB RPG/RTS/Arcade/Text Quest hybrids ever created. Screenshot taken from the version with Revolutions fan expansion installed, though I wouldn't expect anyone to be able to tell from the screenie.

    No Hotlinking allowed. :/ Could you post an alternative screenshot?

    Well and you need to guess VDs as well before you post your own. :P
    It's not that hard, it's even on Steam.

    So guys, not getting into the contest, just looking for an answer. Been racking my brain for the past two days, and google hasn't helped me either.

    A long long time ago, I played a robbery-themed video game's demo. It was top-view, or "isometric-ish", fairly pixellated graphics, and featured a small town in the American West (East California, maybe?) which had, amongst other buildings, a bar with a gang of bikers, from which you had to steal weapons from (IIRC). It was set in the late 20th century... It featured a "heat bar" on your squad members, which made NPC's suspicious to them if it got too high.

    Does anybody know how it's called?

    I think Vault Dweller's screenshot is from a game called Elven Legacy.
