During the MSX fair in Bussum, TNI announced they are to release Space Manbow 2, the upcoming Space Manbow fangame of the brand new MSX development group RenovatiO. On their stand, an impressive playable demo version of the game was on display, revealing the amazing gameplay of the game and some of its original features such as the capability of unlocking features and weapons by collecting resources. More information on the game and its development progress can be found in several topics on our active MSX Forum.

Why on earth would they release it through TNI?
I think is very illogic Question

SM2 requires more hardware than a game with msxdev06 specs .. I'm equally surprised as other ppl tbh..

Odd, a Sunrise release would've made more sense to me. They've always been the preferred 'MSX Publisher' in Europe, and they could probably use the few euros of "profit" they make to invest in all the wonderful things they do for the MSX scene...

We’re not just a publisher, the RenovatiO members are TNI members now. TNI has been having good contacts with RenovatiO for a while already, and during a talk on a terrace the idea for Manbow 2 to be developed under the TNI flag was concieved.

I think that's a good thing. Manbow2 seems a pretty big project. The more developers the better, right?

Well, I hope I’ll have a little more time for MSX stuff in Japan. But I won’t have an MSX, that sucks, and I don’t really know how to make an HD-image of my CF cards…

Hmm, I just found out about this (see ):

7 December 2006 - Due to various unpleasant events and surprises, TNI can no longer identify itself with the Manbow 2 project. We wish the project good luck in an independant setting.

Whatever, I really hope we can see it in (almost) finished state in Nijmegen!
