This production features 2 different game modes:

  • 2 players: a battle mode with your friends, be the first to exit the dungeon!

Technical specifications:

  • MSX2 (megarom of more than 1,5 MB).
  • MSX-MUSIC sound.
  • PSG sound for FX.
  • English and Spanish texts (game, box and manual).
  • Full color box and manual plus a cushion to hold the cartridge.

The pre-order process of this game has just started, from now until the end of October. Orders processing will be from end of October to the end of December and delivery during January 2021. If you want a copy, please contact them here: benjacarambalan@gmail.com

The joke in the original title of the game is lost in translation so here's an explanation for the non-Spanish-savvy people: "Marrones & Cotorras" (literally "Browns & Parrots") sounds similar to "Dragones & Mazmorras", which is the Spanish name of Dungeons & Dragons. Smile

Despite the exelent explanation given by konamiman, when I read "Dumb ones & Parrots" I get all triggered and think it should be "translated" (not really a translation) as "Donkeys & Parrots"

For those who ask why: A donkey is a fairly common animal here in Brazil called "burro", which also is portuguese to "dumb" as in "not intelligent person". (I just learned they're also common in Spain and Portugal)

Yeah, the English title sounds a bit clunky indeed. Quite unnatural at least. But I'm not a native English speaker anyway.

Hi everyone:

Thanks for the feedback. Any idea is welcome.

I just wanted to make clear that, although we lose a set of words in Spanish when translating it into English, we win another.

Dumb ones & Parrots sounds like Dungeons & Dragons, and great care has been taken that these words weren't random or just to cover the need for pun.

This means that, during the game, the meaning of these words is discovered, whether you play in Spanish or in English.

But to discover that ... you will have to buy it ...; D
