Don't you think the current MSX scene has gotten a bit boring? That something is missing? That it has all become a bit too soft and sweet?! Then there's good news for you, because FutureDisk is making a comeback in 2022.

From now on no programmer, musician or artist will have their life safe, because all censorship is shattered to pieces again. Koen Dols and his friends are back. Jorito (developer of this website), Pat of Parallax (you know Akin, right?), the Hegega boys (Bet your life, Teacher's Terror). They are all participating again, this time supplemented by other well-known Dutch MSXers. You know what? Even Meits joined the party. It’s about time. Shudder.

In 2021 a bunch of well-known dutch MSXers and former members of the FutureDisk have forged plans to breathe new life into the infamous dutch diskmagazine of the 90s. And perhaps also to make it to the cursed number 50?! Who will say… FutureDisk will sell new editions in limited amounts at the fair in Nijmegen and via pre-order. After the fair the disk will be available for download for free. The revenue will flow directly back to the MSX Resource Center.

The aim is to publish a first edition at the fair in Nijmegen in 2022. The year in which FutureDisk celebrates its 30th birthday. Want to participate? Hate mails? Ideas for sections of the magazine? The FutureDisk likes to hear from you. Reactions can be sent to FutureDisk@outlook.com or by replying below this newspost. Updates on the further progress can be obtained by following the Twitter account of the FD.

PS: The FutureDisk will be made according to their own recipe; a largely Dutch magazine with fun extra content (demos, music, mini games).

Amazing news! I loved FutureDisk back in the day.
I truly hope the revival will be a huge success.
You can take my pre-order!

Hi Koen, hi Manuel,
Yes, it is me Wink . Great to see so many familiar faces in this forum.

After a long absence from the msx scene, it is stunning to see how well the msx community is doing.
An active forum, a top-notch emulator, a steady stream of cartridge-based games, and now -as the icing on the cake- a revival of FutureDisk Big smile .

> Any requests?
Review some recent Japanese msx items, like books and home-brew games (video)?

Mothers were born between the last and the next issue, so enough to review. Enough people to interview. Cram the d#mn disk with nail hard ascii.
