I would like to congratulate everyone who was part of this competition.
It was a pleasure to be one of competitors this year.
I could see and play all the games from this edition and I had a lot of fun.
Now me and Daniel need to finish the game and create the cartridge version of it.
I hope you all like it.

I read the report on my game(only able to read a few minutes ago today) ,Bookworm,and a judge says it is hard to understand and other comment relating to the manual even though I sent the manual in a zip file with the game ROM in my entry..

I don't understand why my game Bookworm was judged without considering
its clearly written instruction manual; In my contest entry email(which I still
have) I emailed the instruction manual
with my MSX game entry, on 22 /Feb/21, with the manual in the zip file,
to be more precise the files I emailed in my entry can be found at

(the github announced here on back in Feb/21).

My personal favourite was Raven. Because it's so brilliantly simple and challenging at the same time. I agree however that the game loses out on music.

MSXdev has a very comlete scoring system and to win you need to have every aspect in your game. That makes Alien Attack the very well deserved winner. I'm glad the secret passwords are in the game, without those I wouldn't stand a chance.

Oh and I liked Blockbuster as well. It's a sort of meditation game. MSXdev has seen a exciting edition!

Great dev contest this year.
You may agree or disagree with the scoring system (which is a completely different discussion), but it was made very clear and the judges were very diligent in following it.
My personal favorite was S.O.L.O. but anyway, there were a lot of good games.
There were a lot of games, and to evaluate all of them in depth must have been a lot of work. You can't expect the judges to play each game cover to cover. It took me almost a week to finish S.o.l.o.
Next year is going to be interesting.

Good job !

Congrats to you, Micha! What a technical sophisticated and polished game PAC-01 is, it was a close call on the top of the list.
Congrats to Roolandoo, too!

And on this way I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the organisers, the jury and the supporters of MSXDev!

I never knew the music to Dr. Who (in the winner's game Alien Attack) was in the public domain. I guess it is because Dr. Who and television was invented int the 1620s (about 400 years ago) and copyright to a song expire after 150 years after the death of the last composer.

Well, I have to say that the 7th place was not what I was hoping for, but it's honorable nonetheless.
It's still a good place for a first participation, and I'm proud of what we achieved, as a team.

Congratulations to everyone !

Hi guys, what about the winners loot box? I haven't received the email asking for my choice yet (16º place).
How is it going?

My guess: slowly. That's not a criticism; even with 24h round-trip-time for emails (which I consider unlikely fast), it'd take over two weeks for your turn to come up, assuming I've understood how the prizes are dealt correctly.

Hai, the Winners Loot Box has 28 items to be claimed. And, indeed, it takes a round-trip in order to get that done. We are currently at #14, so @uninteresting you are up next with "Step" at #15 followed by @albs his Arya at #16Smile
Good thing come slowly.

@ro And like I told you in an e-mail, I refused any prizes Smile (I did misspeak about not wanting the digital Blast Annual, though, but I've since bought it for myself so I don't want that either).
