A few months ago i have been busy with a remake of SD Snatcher, and i got a lot of reactions about it, unfortunately i had to stop the project after releasing the playable demo of the game (up to Pier 17) because of personal stuff.
I made 'my' version of the game with the program called RPGMaker 2000 and i made it look as much as possible as the original.

A friend of mine took over the project and is planning to finish it also.

Look like the original means a literal port, or with upgraded graphics/music like the MoG remake? These projects are really fun Smile

At first I intended to say something like "naah, that's childish" but I've decided to take this very seriously. Hence a very cunning question:

Why?

Why not childish? It`s a little bit of several things I guess. MSX is a way for many people (as me) to relive their childhood. When I was younger there was a (fun) war between Amiga, MSX, IBM compatibles etc, so it`s nostalgia to be childish and say like MSX rules, PC`s suck.. Smile
As to the biggest reson: For me SD Snatcher IS MSX, so porting it is blasphemy TO ME.
If we weren`t childish, we wouldn`t be using our MSX`s Smile

my intention with making this, was to show people who dont know msx, what great games there were back then. And the other reason is/was, to show the people at konami that not only games like, metal gear, contra and castlevania are games that people still want to play, but snatcher too! And maybe even convince to do a sequel of (SD) Snatcher!!

There still are so many Snatcher fans around the world, and SD snatcher still has one of the most battle engines that exists, never seen anything like it since 1991! did you??

Sheesh what a nonsense. Saying SD-Snatcher is MSX is blasphemy if anything is (which i don't think). MSX is so much more than just one game, no matter how brilliant it is. Without SD-Snatcher the MSX would still be just as great. I agree with the point that MSX Rules, PC's suck is childish, which is why I never say anything like it. I would welcome a remake of SD-Snatcher, not in the least since it is fun to make. The MSX Spirit, the way of MSX as you say has nothing to do with the characters MSX, it has nothing to do with a Zilog cpu, nor with any kind of technology. It has to do with being creative, no matter on what platform, THAT is the essence of what MSX has taught me.

Blasphemy? no way jose, it's a tribute. Etude de MSX.

If there wasn't SD-Snatcher then we'd all regard other games as the best RPG on msx, like xak2, DS6 etc. If SD Snatcher wouldn't be there we wouldn't miss it. So, porting SD-Snatcher to PC is nothing to worry about, it's definitly not a part of the 'msx'.

Go back some years, when there was nemesis. The fact that there was also a nemesis on other platforms (gradius) didn't mean that the msx was degraded in any way, did it?

SD-Snatcher and Metal Gear 2 can be considered Konami's final gifts to the MSX system. From a commercial point of view it was better to develop them for a different platform. Hence, recreating that gift on a different platform is IMO an insult to Konami and to MSX.
