Nope
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

Ah, think I got it, it's SENTO?

Same developers as Creep Clash (& the interface looks exactly the same!) Didn't know about that one.

Haha sweet. Since I can't un-hear this, you guys have to too: experience the incredible sound design of SENTO.

Note that I cropped it to remove the title. (I don't expect this one to last very long anyway. :P)

Hint: the game's title is in the format " [actual title that everyone calls it] [ far future space-year of the future ] "

Figured it was around 1990 or so, at least close enough to know it had 24xx in the title.

^^ didn't see the last couple hints, otherwise I probably could have got it sooner. This must be Challenge of the Five Realms from 1992?
