The MSX2 version includes the V9990 version! Both versions are on the same single floppy disk!
I'll make sure it's made more clear!
Of course this is only MSX2+V9990 - it doesn't work on CPC+V9990!

Is there a possibility of acquiring a digital version?

Backers of my patreon already have access to the latest digital build...
https://www.patreon.com/akuyou

if you want to back me for $1 a month, then cancel after the first month's payment is taken I'm cool with that... I would be disappointed if people cancelled before the first month (meaning I never got a single dollar) but if people don't like the game, that's their right.

I will release the game for free download at a later date, however I do not plan to do this until Polyplay tell me sales of the game have covered the expenses of the physical release, they're taking all the financial risk in publishing my game, and I want to see it go well for them.

If you tell me how much is the digital version and you give me a paypal account, today I pay you (then you discount it from the physical versions), I understand that the physical version is an expense, that's why I offer to pay it right now.

The truth is that the MSX disketera that I'm going to play is not good.

For tax reasons I do not want to receive money to my paypal account, my tax circumstances are complex as I am an expat living overseas,
however patreon take paypal payments... if that's not suitable to you, just wait for the free version

The Chibiakumas website has had a refresh! There's also some new multiplatform screenshots!

You may be pleased to notice the MSX version tends to look the best!

Nice!

I like how the palette changes colour depending on the enemy type in level 4. Was this actually motivated as a way to get more colours for the enemies, turned into a game feature?

(But your eyes must be powered by lasers to read a font so small… Wink)
