Hi everyone,
The game is already finished. We are with the final final touches, betatesting, readjusting, fine-tuning, translating and trying to get cartridges.
We have cartridges for those who did the pre-purchase, and about 25 more for those who want it, and there will be a second batch in a few months.
Shipments will start in a couple of weeks.

GENERAL INFORMATION:
The game supports PSG musics and SCC musics (external SCC cartridge required, connected in slot 2, for example the MFR, Carnivore2, snatcher or sd snatcher scc+ cartridge, metal gear 2, pennantlers, kai magazine collection 1, kai magazine collection 2, Lilo and some more).
You can toggle between SCC or PSG by holding down a key during startup.
The support for FM was eliminated to be able to integrate SCC since with SCC the game feels much better than with FM, and it is the same effort to insert a fm in slot 2 than insert an SCC, and there are many cartridges with SCC integrated in the market.

We are trying to get cartridges for those who did not pre-purchase. For now we have managed to get 25.
It will take months to get more.
If someone wants to buy the game, you can write to: [email protected]
The game in cartridge costs 42 euros + shipping.
Shipping to Europe is 11,80
Shipping outside Europe is 14,80

-Intro music: Manuel Dopico
-In-game musics: John Hassink

INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO DID THE PRE-PURCHASE:

We have obtained a few cartridges with SCC so that, those who did the pre-purchase in cartridge (that is, those who paid 39 euros + shipping) if you wish, for 5 euros more (which is the price difference of the 2048k cartridge without scc versus those that have SCC) you can have the cartridge already with scc integrated in it and you do not need to add an external SCC.
Those who did the pre-purchase and want your cartridge to have an internal SCC, contact me: [email protected]
This limited special edition with integrated SCC will only be done once and is exclusive for those who made the pre-purchase. There are no more scc cartridges, they are sold out, and even if there are more again in the future, there will be no more SCC batches of this game.
This is a way of thanking those who did the pre-purchase, which is essential to carry out large projects like this one.

Many thanks to everyone who pre-purchased the game!

Special thanks and a big hug to Arturo Ragozinni for creating and adapting the PSG and SCC music player for this game!
A million thanks, Arturo! This game gives a fantastic feeling with SCC, much better than with FM!

Super special thanks to Victor Sanchez for helping to finance and produce the game and help me in more ways than I deserve. A big hug for you too!

nice.
So earlier you said "The game comes with PSG and, if present, MSX-Music programmed music." I guess MSX-Music is out, SCC is in?

I'm not complaining Smile

Exactly,
The support for FM was eliminated to be able to integrate SCC since with SCC the game feels much better than with FM, and it is the same effort to insert a fm in slot 2 than insert an SCC, and there are many cartridges with SCC integrated in the market.

Personally, I've always preferred OPLL/MSX-music to SCC by leaps and bounds -- I think SCC sounds scratchy, while OPLL sounds really clean and appealing.

There are exceptions, though -- I think games like Metal Gear 2 and Space Manbow use SCC very well -- but then there are games where everyone else praises the SCC, but I just wish they would've gone with OPLL, like SD Snatcher.

I think I'm the only MSX fan who doesn't really care for the music in SD Snatcher, though. Wink
