Description:

RTS WHERE YOU PLAY AS DEATH AGAINST THE HUMAN KING

Hi all, first time posting here. Today I found my old laptop but sadly it won’t boot up. But it brought back some great memories. Particularly a game I’m about to describe.

So at the start of the game the king of the humans has defeated death and pushed him out of the living world. However, it had a twist. He then decides to try and conquer the world of the dead and you play as death herself and fight back via RTS

The laptop was built in 1994 and I bought a new one in 2001 so it would have been between that time. It couldn’t be a browser game, and I think I may have gotten it from a mail-in service, but cannot remember tbh. I just remember the weird old Apple-y black and white color scheme and the creepy faces and art.

Hope this is enough info. And many thanks.

Edit: Many thanks to all of those offering to recover my hard drive. I’m actually in the UK and a lot of the offers seem to be from the US. My local computer store opens Wednesday 29th Jan, so I’m going to take it in to see if they can get it to boot up. Many thanks again, it’s very kind of you all.

EditEdit: Laptop checked in earlier today, quite busy but should have an update Friday.

FinalEdit: Sad news. The laptop is buggered. The dampness/moisture of the storage I placed it in has knackered it all. Any final suggestions?

EditEditEdit: I am retrieving quotes from professional data recovery firms.

Update - the ‘platter’ of the hard drive was damp and it’s been deemed unrecoverable. I’m really sorry to have built hopes up.

FinalUpdate - FOUND IT! CURRENTLY ON SALE AT CHRONO.GG! WE DID IT GANG! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED AND COMMENTED! DEATH CROWN LIVES AGAIN!

Having a description of “1-bit style” made me rather curious as to how the game would look good, so I watched the trailer on the front page. And… Wow, those are detailed and beautiful animations. Memorable graphics is a rather accurate Chrono.gg descriptor. The King’s laughter is rather creepy though.

Oh man. Choosing death crown? In the middle of a coronavirus scare? Bold and witty. Truely a gem of subtle dark humour.

I am very amused that Corona the beer has taken such a huge hit in sales because of the coronavirus scare… You would think that people would read into it a bit more and know that the beer has nothing to do with the virus…


#7

Is it though?
Only had a brief look around but I can’t find any suggestion that that is actually happening, one article that says it is so but then only goes on about google search statistics about corona beer and virus, not a single piece of info regarding sales statistics. One reddit thread asking the question with no answers given.

Forbes has an article also primarily about google search results and in their “corona in the news” page nothing else shows up.

Not sure validity of any of these articles to be honest, but here’s one about the sales in Israel…

https://www.news1.news/2020/02/because-of-the-virus-decrease-in-tens-of-percent-corona-beer-sales-in-israel-consumerism.html

And the article doesn’t really seem to give any solid evidence, so who knows.

It’s true that people are looking it up.

I have only heard about the beer taking a hit, but I didn’t go looking up much about it.
