Italy is a forgotten MSX world...
Umberto Eco died in February:

And so this Extensum is a great tribute to the genius of "Il Nome della Rosa", the novel that inspired Abadia del Crimen.
Is it a game for MSX2?

It's the original .jar and it works in msx1,2,2+ or TR
because this cartridge is a rpi2 under msx running raspbian with Java 1.8.0

Thanks usuario_msx2! (^_^)

@enribar: Indeed The Abbey of Crime Extensum is a tribute to "La abadía del crimen" game and its authors, "Il nome della Rosa" Umberto Eco's novel and Jean-Jacques Annaud's film.
Also, some parts of these new version are inherit from the MSX2 remake :RNFF:

Sorry, I do not understand.
Is that MSX doing anything with that cartridge or the cartidge does all the hard work?
How does it work?

In the other hand,
Could be possible to port this game to MSX?
Porting all the code to something that can be run on MSX, such as ASM or C could be a pain in the ass, I guess.
Adapting the graphics and pallettes would not be easy too.

MSX works as a keyboard for the rpi2. Cartridge does fue hard work .
