Who can get me in touch with Chessmaster 2000 programmer, David Kittinger? This is in order to create Lubek Castle 2000!

I looked at the talkchess registration page for fun, and it is a simple math problem, phrased in a very appropriate form for the board subject. To solve it all you need is to look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_piece_relative_value If you can't solve it, I'd say you are as close to a bot ...

Car racing game around 2008

Many racing games to choose from.

Here is a selection from 2008: https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ade_/2008/

You can try different years or other views (I assumed behind view) and get other lists.

"Mario Maniaq": have you ever heard of this game?

This one: https://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/eracha

European title is 'Mario Maniaq' but the covers and description say he is a caveman more than an adventurer.

With the other covers, it would be nice if you could submit them to MobyGames perhaps?

Sci-Fi horror game with alien blobs

Well...you didn't mention the platform, was is a DOS game?

If it was, I think it could be 'Wreckers'; the screenshots look much as you describe.

Who can get me in touch with Chessmaster 2000 programmer, David Kittinger? This is in order to create Lubek Castle 2000!

It could be something from 'Fisher random chess' (chess960), or an artificial problem setup. 0-0-0-0 is not a standard castling in my book. As is, the paired problem as presented (with an otherwise empty board) cannot be completed for both sides because of the resulting column check condition for th...

So how does your game differ form AoE? Is it turn-based instead of real time? Did it have city/base building or not? Was it medieval or not? 2D or 3D?
I can't say I have much memory of starting menus in games, so that does not ring a bell with me.

This looks like an illegal castling to me, or possibly an 'artificial castling'; ordinarily the king should only move two positions from his *original* position - and if one side initially makes a castling like this, the other sides king cannot move through the checked square resulting from the oppo...

DOS Dungeon Crawler / possibly Roguelike game with permadeath, fog of war, but fixed levels (available by 1995)

ADOM maybe? Early versions (before v1.2) had no random dungeons according to the Wiki, and there are permanent dungeons in each game.
(I think I've played it, but it was long ago, when it was all ASCII stuff - now it has some nice graphics I think)

When did you play it - a year helps (old/young says nothing)? Windows or DOS? Kids game I assume - anything educational? Or was it a horror game?

Ok, then take a look at mobygames; one short list is below, games with educational themes - some are using the quake engine.
