I know I've already had a guess, but it seems like no-one is going to get it.

Isn't something like Kohan: Kings of War II

Oh yay.

This one might be equally as hard, but screw it, I don't do easy.

Looks very familiar to me, but not as something I played for long enough to have even a remote chance of remembering the name.

Kohan...hmmm *goes and wiki's it*

AHA, the first game was Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns (and the game I'd been eyeing) - that's why that description you gave twigged my memories; it's a pretty specific game mechanic with the faction leaders. :)


ANYWAYS, I was going to say something like Caesar III, but obviously not in 15th Century Spain. ;)

You're closer than you think with "Medieval Transport Tycoon".

A clue would be that it's that sort of game.

And I think you're going to need a clue looking at recent guesses. : )

A city management game set in 15th century Spain...
I have no idea.

@Empath: Civ City Rome already exists though, proof.
And before that there was the Caesar series, of which the first two instalments actually looks surprisingly like the game currently up, but I'm pretty sure they're not it exactly...

It's not just set in Spain. It has different scenarios from different times from around the world.

From ancient China to Industrial Britain.


And no, it's not the Patrician, even though that's a fine game.

Nope. If no-one gets it in a couple of hours I'll post a few more screenshots.

Can't say I've played any of them, so this is a total guess with the number, but is it one of the Anno games, possibly Anno 1602?

I'd go check screenshots of the different versions, but I kinda feel that would be cheating.

Nope, although the Anno games are pretty good.

Except Anno 2070, since the DRM on it is just stupid.

Anyways, I'll just go and get a few more screenshots then, after I've had a cup of tea.

ok.... from that 1st screen, this is definitely a reskinned/reimagined transport tycoon or vice versa.....

Railroad tycoon?

Gah, it looks like something I've played once upon a time. Is the principle focus city management or trading?
