Do you like the idea to convert it to Sega SC-3000/SG-1000 (16KB memory expansion required)?

Don't know much about the system but browsing through the specs it looks like a fairly trivial endevour. Wondering if there's any real demand for it though. 

If you want to know about our SG-1000/SC-3000 enter in our FB page "SC-3000 Survivors".  The hardware is based upon ICs very common and simple.

Any hope for a new physical release?

Pleeeeeease? :-)

Not really, unless there was some overwhelming demand for it, which is highly unlikely. Hope you enjoy the digital edition nonetheless

En cuanto he visto que lo habéis puesto en digital no he dudado un solo instante en adquirirlo. Este es uno de los títulos más soberbios y bien realizados de toda la escena 'Homebrew' para cualquiera de las plataformas de 8bits. Mi más sincera enhorabuena y muchísimas gracias por vuestros esfuerzos en realizar esta auténtica obra de arte.

Muchas gracias por tu comentario, se agradece mucho. Espero que disfrutes el juego.

The sentence "For use with MSX computers  (any generation, both real hardware and emulation supported)" is a little bit misleading, as this is a 256kb ROM and won't work on my 64kb MSX1 computer without using a Carnivore or a everdrive-like cartridge.

However the game is great, I just purchased it and I don't regret it.

Hi Cesco, thanks for your support.

I don't think I'm quite following you here. If you want to use this rom file on a real MSX of course you will have to either build your own physical cartridge or use a flash device - this goes without saying. Also, the total size of the rom image is not relevant in any way (that's what mappers are for after all).

The sentence above refers to the fact that the game was designed to run on any MSX computer no matter what their specs, even those with only 8Kb RAM which was the absolute minimum for the standard. I'm pretty sure your MSX1 will run the game just fine.

Hope you enjoy your stay at the suites!

We need a physical release, pleeeeeease!

It was sold on cartridge a year ago. Look here:


Awesome game!

This is awesome, thanks for making it! I love the overall atmosphere and style and the lovingly crafted pixel art. The screens feel like a real place and have great little details. Definitely one of the best MSX games!

It would be great to have some kind of a save system though — there seems to be a lot of stuff to explore and I rarely have this much uninterrupted free time :-/

Super contento comprarlo, un autentico placer tenerlo en digital, felicidades a todos los desarolladores.
