Excellent work, congratulation.

I'm really looking forward for that blog post about how the game works (I'm kinda toying around with small bits of code for 3D iso engine for ZX Next, so the more ideas I see, the better).

haha, thanks Smile

@defdanny: unfortunately there is no way. I considered adding a password system, but I eventually ran out of space in my target ROM size, so, it was left out... sorry about that!

@Ped7g: oh, very curious to see what you are working on for Next! I still need a few days to finish the blog post, but I've already started it

great game, some true gem Smile

btw why don't extend 48K to 64K ? in case of physical cartridge production it will not add any cost (you'll need a 512Kbit EPROM anyway), and the only thing is that when calling code from upper 16K you'll need to disable interrupts and reenable after return

Thanks! 48KB is just self-imposed. Just for the fun of the challenge to fit it all in a small space Smile I know it's not the best for the game, but it's some extra motivation for me haha.

I might consider using the extra space if we do a physical edition and there is something I really need to put in that doesn't fit though, of course Smile

You would have to play it in the emulator.

Then they go to save positions.

It's fun to get stuck in the game and search for hints in its source code itself Big smile

Hai Santi,

Great work, too bad you couldn't finish it before the MSXdev21 deadline. Although other participants won't complain, I reck'n. Smile

I've played the game, and liked it very much. I even finished it Smile It is not too hard once you find the revolver. Nice story Smile

Played it on BlueMSX and the ending don't seem to be bug free there. That yellow scroll thingy on the left hand of the screen, I think it should show something. Like a map? it's buggy as it seems.

A game engine worth expanding.

Hi thanks. Sure, emulator save state function works.
