Settlers 1 reference!



I found this little easter egg a while ago… Basically, one of the roman’s eyecatchers is a medieval knight… A little out of place, but if you take a closer look, you will be able to notice that it is Settler 1’s boxart knight! Nice, huh?

(It also is the… only(?) easter egg that I know of so far from the entire series… Germans do in fact have a great sense of humor… But no wonder the rest of the world thinks they don’t…). Anyway, will(try to) keep you updated! And sorry for forgetting about the blog for what seemes like an eternity.
