Hi everyone, I just finished my latest MSX game (which I could not finish on time for the MSXDev, apologies to the organizers!).

- 48KB ROM, and should work on any MSX with 16KB RAM.
- ROM / source code in GitHub: https://github.com/santiontanon/westen
- Small video in Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weFJe88oebA

It's basically an isometric game (in the style of classics like Head over Heels or La Abadia del Crimen), with elements of adventure and some puzzle/riddle solving. I hope you like it, I definitively had lots of fun making it! :)

(and before you ask, @tfh, you absolutely have permission to upload to your site, hahaha)

Wow... This gives you an idea how those old Spectrum conversions could have looked on MSX, compoared to those slugish monochrome monsters. I'm going to spend some time onthis game as well :)
And... Yes, you know me well.. Thanks for the permission. here it is: Western House Online

Impressive! Looks great and plays well. As TFH mentioned, this is how the Spectrum conversions should have looked.

It's looking great !

What amazes me the most, santiontanon, is your ability to create all components of the game with real talent: code, graphics, music, scenario. I know I can't! I need help on graphics and music, and sometimes on the scenario as well.

Thanks a lot everyone!!! Greatly appreciated!

And yes, indeed, there is sprite occlusion (which is what takes most of the CPU at each frame). I calculate a mask based on the objects around the player, and then cut out the sprites of the player, and transfer them to the VDP again at each game frame. The upside is that the main character looks very colorful (it's made out of 6 sprites), but the downside is that I can only have 1 character at most in the screen, as more than one would result it a lot of flickering, and maybe slowdown. But it worked out at the end! Smile

And thanks @tfh!! One little detail, it's "Westen" (without the "r"), the spell checker keeps trying to insert an "r" there haha Smile

LOL.. I guess that's what happens when you do things in the morning on your laptop without your glasses.
I've fixed it as far as I could without breaking all the links I've posted ;-)
