You sure? All the other games have been localized and are relatively known...

C3, clever!

Pretty sure C3 is Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness.

I don't know if they'd use an obscure game like that for F5 given the rest of these...

Hmmm that fits better than Eternal Darkness I reckon.

But B2 = Myst 3 totally...

C3: how about. Time Crisis..?
Where's the crisis?

I have a an issue with the "Afternoon of Darkness" interpretation, because to be strictly correct there it would have to represent the entire afternoon, not just one point within it.

Time's Hollow is probably the closest I've seen to a reasonable interpretation of the clue, but I would imagine it would make more sense presented as outline figures, rather than inverted text.

just guessing here.. but 4.23PM and Dark.. shouldn´t it be 4.23AM..?
I did actually go down that line of thinking, thinking that a sunset that early would mean it was near the shortest day of the year, which would make it the winter Solstice...

...but I felt that was a bit too convoluted.
