Compare this screenshot from "Hotel Giant 2" that's posted on Steam:

with the cover of Trackmania Sunrise:

The resemblance is uncanny, isn't it? :roflol:

(Come to think of it, the skybox on the last image on Steam does also look familiar, but I might be wrong on that one...)

That was my first thought too, but it's developed by Enlight Software, which was also the US publisher of Sunrise. So they're covered. :wink:

Btw, nice Easter egg discovery. :thumbsup:

Just taking a curious look at the HG2 screenshots via the "New on Steam" RSS feed and noticing a kinda familiar image... :D

(I guess it was the trails on the cars that tipped me off... ;))
