Francisco Téllez de Meneses is the creator of Unepic, a game which has made its appearance on several platforms, among which the Wii U where he became the first Spanish indie developer on that Nintendo console. But Francisco's heart has always been close to the MSX. As a matter of fact, Unepic began as an idea to make a sequel to Konami's classic The Maze of Galious.
At the end of last year, he was encouraged to create a prequel to Ghost 1.0 for MSX, which was presented last December at the 50th RU of Barcelona, where it gained very positive attention.
Ghost is a metroidvania type adventure where you control Ghost, one of Viktor's agents, who has the mission to destroy a computer that went mad and is now controlling the "Dallas" space station. The focus is on exploration and finding the right items to progress on your quest.
The final product will consist of 100 screens, divided into 5 maps, and will have three boss battles, so it promises to be a treat for fans of oldschool adventure gaming.
Ghost will be released in physical format at the next RU of Barcelona, in June, and later will go on sale online. Francisco also plans to prepare a special edition of the game that will come accompanied by extra material.
Until then, we can at least look at the screenshots provided here.
