It's been 40+ hours... Second hint: It's educational.

Fun fact: I died a fraction of a second after unpausing because that fighter in front of me went with the Japanese method.

NOT Oregon Trail. I was laughing because I thought you were trying to be funny by guessing that.

It's not, because it's not Oregon Trail.

More hints as to what it is: It's based on a British TV show from 1978 (it didn't get shown in the US until '79).

Alright so apparently I hijacked the thread due to AlaricD's questionable communications skills. Had It been my turn however GoblinuptheRoad would have been correct in that it was CFS1.

I guess I could have been a little more clear.

Since mine's a real stumper, I'll add another screenshot.

Connections?
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'

Yes!

You made the (puts on sunglasses) "Connection" (YeeaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH)

Pretty good game. I loved the TV show, and am happy to report it's available to watch on Archive.org.

It's your turn, leileilol!

Well, the name of the jpg is a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
