Ghorpm: I've seen this icon! But where? Judging by the name it is not Diablo so perhaps... three games come to my mind:
HoMM 2?
Tomb Raider?
Warcraft 2?
No, the icon for that one shows a shield with a lion on it.
No, that one has a picture of Lara Croft.
Nope, that one has an axe and a sword crossed.
And no, it's not Diablo. It was meant to be called The Making of Diablo 3, but that was sadly too long. Diablo has an icon really similar to that though, but with a red background.

nicohvc: Indiana Jones and His Desktop Adventures? yoda stories?
Nope and nope.
This really reminds me how many great games were published in 1996. The game in question shares engine with atleast 4 other games.

Alligatorcon: Right, this one should be fairly easy.
Wild guess: Powerslave?
No, not Powerslave either. Had never heard of that one.
Alright then, new hint. This game was a darling of graphics card manufacturers, and has several versions that were packed in with the graphic cards to show off what they were capable of.

Err...Quake? I'm sure the Quake logo was used as the icon though...

It isn't Daggerfall, right?

It is indeed not Quake. I think you're right about the icon being the Quake logo.

LynXsh: It isn't Daggerfall, right?
No, the icon for that is a skull with a crown (kinda like the box art).
By the way, the game isn't on GOG sadly (Despite many requests). Two of the games with the same engine are though. Also, it's a bit odd, the game isn't listed in wikipedia's article on '1996 in video gaming', despite it definetly being published in 1996.
Um, doesn't really seem to go with the horned skull, but Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries?

Correct! It is indeed MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries.

Sure, the skull seems a bit odd at first, but try to look at the shin of the mech on the cover:

It is the sign of the mercenary team Hansen's Roughriders, who train you in the tutorial:

I actually figured my avatar and title would tip my hand, but oh well.

Your turn!
