Oh, man, I remember seeing a trailer for the ColecoVision version last year and being really bummed that it wasn't also on MSX like Caos Begins (which is one of my favorite MSX homebrew games!), so this is really exciting! I will definitely be getting this as soon as it's released.

Between this and Yokai no Atsuki Tatakai, the upcoming homebrew releases for MSX are looking like they're going to keep me busy for quite a while soon!

Looks so nice!

Will it use screen 4 on MSX2 to benefit from the increased nr. of sprites per line?

The video is of the MSX2 version, I presume?

Sounds and looks awesome! Reminded me a bit of Shalom, regarding game play and style.

Oh! There's another new trailer for it on YouTube, and this one specifically labels which scenes were taken from an MSX and which ones were taken from an MSX2 (on the top-left of the screen):

Whoa! I'm procrastinating right now, and found myself on the Twitter linked in the original news article -- and if you scroll down a little, there are a BUNCH of videos of another upcoming MSX and Colecovision project called "Multiverse" that also looks really, really good! Looks really far along, too. I'm looking forward to the announcement on that one as well!

@pceworld : Unfortunately, pre-orders for the second batch are closed. However, if you are interested send an e-mail to contact at micromancers dot com, so we can let you know in case we have some extra unit.

Lord Drakul's minions have already contacted all the mortals who made a reservation of Children of the Night. If you made a reservation, check your e-mail since your copy of Children of the Night is ready!

Unfortunately, some mortals contacted weeks ago have not replied to the call of Lord Drakul. This can be because of:

a) They did not receive our e-mail. So, if you made a reservation but you do not have an e-mail from MICROMANCERS, please write us again (contact at micromancers dot com) or reply to this message.
b) We did not receive their reply. So, if you replied us but haven't had further information from us, please write us again (contact at micromancers dot com) or reply to this message.
c) They are not mortal. Our e-mail servers are only able to contact mortals. So, if you are immortal or undead, please contact us through an Astral Communication Channel. In this case, the game will be sent through Standard Teleport Device.

Best regards,
Lord Drakul's minions
