Sorry guys, wasn't sure whether it'd be too hard or not.

The game is L.E.D. Wars, the first release by Larian Studios. They had been making an RPG called The Lady, The Mage and The Knight, but couldn't find a publisher to support them. So to prove their worth they scrambled together a poor man's Command & Conquer in five months. That got them enough credit and attention to finally make Divine Divinity a few years later.

edit: free play, obviously.

I want to say it's Gratuitous Tank Battles, a game I never did get around to trying.

I did not know that about Larian. Thanks for that bit of trivia!

That was quick. It is GTB and it was a huge let down after GSB 1 + 2

Yeah, absolutely love GSB. A turret defense game sounded right up my alley, but after its poor reviews I never got around to trying it or GSB2...

Next game! Hopefully this one isn't too obscure!

It absolutely was a massive letdown. I'm surprised he released it.

That game looks amazing and I definitely want to play it, but I have no idea what it is. That has to be a walking simulator of some sort.

The Ship
or
The Room
?

I dunno, but it's beautiful.

Torn?

Looks like Stronghold.

Looks like, but isn't.

That's one of the Total War games then. The original Shogun?

Can you be a little more specific?

Shogun Total War? As in not Total War: Shogun 2. I don't believe there were any others unless you're asking for the name of any expansions, which I don't recall if the original had any.

There was indeed an expansion for the original Total War: Shogun which is what the pics are from.

If no one else can guess it without googling I’ll give you the win.

It was something like The Mongols or The Mongolian Expansion. I do remember it although I don't think I ever got it despite playing the hell out of Shogun Total War.

Close enough!

Your turn.

And it was a very fun expansion. I won it a bunch of times as the Mongols but I never managed to win it playing as Japan defending against the Mongols. Wish they would have had DLC for it for Shogun 2.

Eek! Busy with dinner and stuff. Free play!

If nobody gets this, I've got another with some HUD elements. But if you know the game, and remember it, the art style should give it away.

Water park tycoon??

Wakfu?
(love the art style)

Nope, not those.

Since I will not be around tomorrow, here's a hint and the next image:
It's a Wii Puzzle/Adventure game.

Never heard of this game before now. Can you treat your customers the same way you can in roller coaster tycoon?
