Tomorrow will be the very last day. Maybe some surprises will arrive (I love this last hours of the contest).

Thanks for the kind words, guys! It's been a lot of fun and definitely a bucket-list item crossed off Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Special thanks to Fernando, without your excellent tutorial videos, this would've been my entry for MSXDev'25 or later! Thanks for that! ( Also, if you want another game for next year, I need more MSX2 vdp tutorials!! oO )

For kids?! haha, kids smarter than me! I was playing yesterday night, and it's quite fun, but I mess it up soooo often! hahaha

Sorry CasDuino and ToriHino: There was a bug in the game and I updated the rom file yesterday. Would be nice if you could update yours too so we can hopefully get rid of the old version.
