Hello folks, I am sorry about the delay...
As I have been explaining to everyone who have contacted us regarding the status of this project, due to a series of unfortunate events in my life (which I will not go on here in public) 6 months ago, I had to look for a job outside the MSX development.
This means that the MSX is now on a secondary plane and I have very little time for MSX developments.
Anyway the game is advancing as we speak, it is nearly finished and it should be released by the end of June if no new surprises arise.
We will post an updated video of the game in a couple of weeks aprox.
Kind regards:
Oscar Kenneth

Here are 2 video links:

Long gameplay with SCC musics

Short gameplay with PSG musics

Sorry about the terrible gameplay but I am not used to the emulator lag (I code on a real MSX).

I will post explaining a bit of the game and the SCC support as soon as I can. I will also open a thread to ask a couple of questions to those who made the preorder (for their benefit, only good things).
After that, I will post about the final game release wich will consist of a batch of 25 cartridges only, since there are no 2048k cartridges available.

To those who made the prepurchase: I am very sorry about the delay!

Due to some messages I just received,I must clarify:
All those who made the preorder have their cartridge ensured already.
The 25 cartridges batch is for those who didn t preorder the game.
If anyone wishes to order the game, there are only 25 available at the moment and we will not be able to make a new batch for 2 or 3 months.

That's looking very promising! I can see there must be a lot of work in the development of this one.

Oh, sweet! I was thinking with only 25 copies, I probably didn't make the cut, but I DID preorder the game, so now I'm just super-excited! Wink

Looking forward to this one big-time! Nice work as always, man!

Looks and sounds very impressive. Graphics style with that size is hardly ever seen on MSX. Fantastic work!

Small thread bump. I have just beaten the game this evening. What a great game it is! Highly recommended!

I had these objects when I finished it:


And finally I have managed to get the ring:

This game deserves a sequel, hopefully for V9990 ;)

Thank you very much for posting this and for your kind words!
This game has a very special place in my heart, we did put an incredible amount of work and effort into it although it does not show at first glimpse, but we did try our best to recreate the feeling of those good old 1987 action JRPG games we grew up with and we loved so much.
Offcourse it is not for everyone, but people who love this kind of game has complemented it a great deal.
We even ported it to Intellivision ^_^
We did indeed design the story line to leave room for a sequel, as you must have guessed since I see you discovered the terrible secret beyond the magic door at the end of the desert.
It is in our to-do list but time will tell if we have enough spare time to do a sequel for this game.
Thank you again for commenting on this, it made me relive nice things.
Cheers!
