Software house Oniric Factor does a little of everything. They make games for Windows, browsers, mobile platforms and micro computers like MSX. Today Oniric has announced its new MSX game called The Awakening. Pre-orders for a physical version are now available.

Oniric Factor has made MSX games like Dribol (2015) for example. Although you can download the most for free, a few of them are also available in physical format. And with the coming release of The Awakening, Oniric Factor has another MSX2 title to be proud of.

You control the "Big Bad Wolf" Soldier in this new adventure, pulverizing mutants with a shotgun and exploring the huge map of more than 200 screens. Pay attention to the alarms of the Geiger counter and move fast, most areas are toxic due to radiation. Your mission is to find the precise terminals to activate the "Icarus protocol".

Not much information about the game itself has been released, time will tell. Keep a keen eye on our forum in this case. What we do know that it is an MSX2 game that requires 128K RAM and MSX-Music (like FM-PAC). The game will be released as a 2Mb cartridge including artwork and a manual. For 33,- euros, ex shipping, you can be the owner of another modern MSX2 game. For details about pre-ordering this jewel, check the web-page about The Awakening.

Indeed,
the color palette is very well made, I like the FOX hero idea…
Looking forward to see how is it will evolve from a gameplay perspective.
I'm also impressed by the work done Smile

Any information on if this will run on an FS-A1WX with 64kb RAM if I use a memory mapper cartridge in the other slot? I have a Musical Memory Mapper, and it works for some 128kb RAM games like Pumpkin Adventure 3, Bombaman, and Akin, but doesn't work with others like Pumpkin Adventure 2, Duck Tales, The Witch's Revenge, and Morning Star.

If it can be confirmed that I'll be able to run the game on my system with a memory mapper cartridge, I'll probably order a copy. But if I can't play it, it would be kind of a waste to do so, so I'd love it if someone could confirm this in advance.

Thanks!
