Nomination: the release of Aleste 2
Why: the best vertical shoot'em up on MSX2 ever, graphics, sound and gameplay-wise, and if it weren't for Space Manbow (already nominated), it would be the best shoot'em up, period.

Nom: Designer and Designer plus
Why: I really think these apps deserve cult-status. In their time the MSX was a common school/educational computer, and it might in fact be these Designers that might've got attention from kids, with as result: their own MSX.

Nomination: the release of Lightning, by Starcracks and Micronics
Why: the first demo written in 100% machinecode that looked at a real attempt to write a decent demo with smooth scrolls and effects not seen before. Of course, many demos after it were much better and REALLY showed what MSX(2) was capable of, but what came before was pretty much pathetic (I'm sorry, that includes earlier Merlasoft and FAC demos; Merlasoft because they were inexplicably in screen 7, but he redeemed himself later, and FAC III because it was in Basic). Or, as the authors put it themselves: "the REAL anti-Commodore demo!"

Nom: Microcabin's music in general
Why: introduction of a new FM-Pac sound, it sounded quite different compared to 'normal' FM games (or scene music for that matter), it's still unmatched!

wolf_, I suggest combining your previous two nominations [edit: the Microcabin ones, you managed to slip a post in between] into "the release of Xak 1", which makes it more of an event. And if you happen to be writing a tune, maybe you could call it "insomnia". ;-)
