Thanks guys, I have never seen these games !
@guyveR800, I did mean making $ yes :-) and that would include paying staff and development team.

I think I will go with the Rona game, as last MSX game. To have an erotic game as last MSX product ...

Snout, you are right: let me change it to: "The last commercial game released before the MSX Revival started". :-)

I think however that with 'commercial companies' we refer to companies that have a number of employees that get payed each month, while the Sunrise-games are basically amateur-games, made without company-employee mechanism, that are simply making some money in the end because of the sales.
Again, in the professional world there ARE games released which are made without company-employee mechanisms, and ARE simply making money in the end because of the sales. It's called 'royalties' and some people work on royalties alone...

The line you're drawing is not between 'commercial' and 'amateur', but it's between 'big fish' and 'small fry'...

Some amateur MSX games have been developed much more professionally than some commercial games on consoles.

I didn't read the page thoroughly, so I don't know if the website says something about that, but 'shuumatsu' means both 'end' and 'weekend' indeed. In this case, the kanji make sure the word 'end' is meant, but if pronunciated, the title literally means 'A way of passing the weekend'. Smile

@guyveR800: although I think the Sunrise products you refer to are beautiful things, I don't think the developers can pay their rent from the royalties ...
I was asking about companies with employees, as wolf_ stated, that were actually being paid for being an MSX programmer.

(I wish I was one ... if I could only have 0.1 EURO for every hour of programming Z80 assembly .... wow ...)
