D00ds i am actualy posting the kind of post that never gets answers or feedback but no matter, i feel like i have to do it :

I am seriously thinking about seeking peoples to make a remake or why not directly a sequel to Penguin Adventure !

Consider this : this game is the only one of his kind and nothing serious realy came out after it...

The idea is simple : OpenGL / DirectX stages while sprites are kept for the penguin, fishes and stuffs that might look better this way... A total 3D game could be done using a way similar to Zelda Windwaker but i don't expect getting in touch with such skilled guys for 3d modeling and stuffs.

So think seriously about it...

Like you, i liked the original VERY MUCH, it's such a master piece, anything i'll do concerning a sequel, a remake or whatever, i want it to be AT LEAST as good as the original or i'll don't do it... Those kind of games are worth the best !

Hey plz, I am not here to argue about " remake sux " or " non official sequels are gay " or anything like that... Smile

I want to do it period...

It is indeed an excellent idea. It remembers me to old files at the proposal directory of the HispaMSX FTP. It has some images of what "would be" a remake of certain MSX games into MSX 2/2+ games (using the V9938 or the V9958). Here they are:

Penguin Adventure:
Original Penguin Adventure
Penguin Adventure with Enhanced MSX 2 graphics
Water stage of Penguin Adventure with Enhanced graphics

Here is the translation from spanish of some ideas to made it:
Here is a proposal for our beloved Game Programmers:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Penguin Adventure
Year:1986
Company:Konami
Media:Cartucho ROM
System:MSX1
Language:Japanese/English
Video:NTSC
Type:Accion - Arcade
Audio: PSG
Input:Teclado - Joy1

It could be enhanced to a MSX 2 Version, using the features of the YAMAHA VDP9938:

Screen 4 --> More colors for "CHRS"
Screen 4 --> SPRITES MODE 2 --> until 3 colors for line/SPRITE
128K VIDEO RAM --> Storage of landscape (3D/Zoom Effect)

Also, we could enhace the sound and the music using the features of KONAMI SCC Audio Chip:

Channel A (PSG) --
Channel B (PSG) ---> SFX
Channel C (PSG) --/

Sample A (SCC) --
Sample B (SCC) --
Sample C (SCC) ---> BGM
Sample D (SCC) --/
Sample E (SCC) --
I guess that this proposal is so old, but when I saw this topic, I remember it so much...

[edit]Updated links to the screenshots, now they work fine (13/02/2005)[/edit]

Sounds interesting!! Big smile

Unfortunately I can't participate in that project, I already have so many things to do (work, other projects, etc). Would only slow down the progress.. Tongue

So.... Do you need beta-testers? Wink

Seriously, I don't get PC remakes...
If you want to create a cool MSX game, create it for MSX.
With the right programming, MSX is more than capable of approaching even modern non-3D hardware.
Penguin Adventure II should be on MSX2 or even MSXturboR with Gfx9000!

By looking at these screenshots it's absolutely awesome to see how the game could be enhanced. Actualy those who have some difficulties to imagine should look at them...

With a good 3d engine and similar gameplay it would be definitively some incredible gaming experience.

The old story wasn't that complex so making a new one that won't betray the original mood should be ok.

I had some problems to download the screenshots karloch
so i uploaded them to my server, those who experienced problems can go there :

Sounds great!!!! A sequel or a remake of PA should be amazing, like the original...

I prefer PAII on PC or PC & MSX, cause there's a lot of people, like me, that we have only MSX1... i'd like to have a MSXtR Gfx9000 and Moonsound Wink but it's a bit difficult and PC emus works well. Perhaps with the new MSX onachip Smile

I totally agree here! Although I think the game should run on a basic MSX 2 (might be cool to add MoonSound music Wink)

Nice GFX anyway. Are these PC drawn pix?
If it was cell based (tiles) MSX2 paints, I would really want this dude to contribute some for Fubsy...sight

I actually don't know how are drawn there images of the enhanced Penguin Adventure, maybe that some OLD celebrity of HispaMSX could tell us. As it says in the document, it is thought to be a remake of Penguin Adventure for MSX 2 computers with SCC, not a PC remake.

I would like much more a MSX 2/2+ (even a GFX9000!) version than a PC remake, but PC remake could be so cool as J-War described.

I think nowadays MSX could be turn into a powerful hardware, in combination of MSX Turbo-R with GFX9000. I already said that in another thread... Main lack of the Turbo-R is his VDP (V9958) that was already deprecated when T-R came out... A R800 with a good and faster VDP like the V9990, would make the MSX see things never seen before.

A GFX9000 costs about 120 euros if I'm right, and if demand would be high, I guess that sunrise would produce more units... But, ok, I understand that all of this is only an utopia...

I prefer an MSX2 remake as well, but a turboR/GFX9000 remake (or any other turboR/GFX9000 game) would be awesome.

And it's not a utopia to believe sunrise will produce more units when there is enough demand. AFAIK (and I don't really know ^^Wink the demand for new moonsounds must be 20.

Anyway, Gfx9000 totally rules!
