Squeek video

In 1991 ANMA released Squeek, The Story of a Ninny. It was a Dutch homebrew game somewhat like Konami's Penguin Adventure. Squeek marked the start of a slew of games by ANMA, a duo which is perhaps even more known for their demos. It also was an MSX1 game in a time when MSX2 ruled the waves, which was quite a difference compared to recent times. Hydragon has finished playing Squeek while openMSX silently recorded it all in the background, and he aims to record more game videos near the end of the year.

The graphics are awesome for MSX1, look at the animals emerging from the ground, the level of detail and color WOW.

I think ANMA were one of the best game developers in the Netherlands. A new game every year, nicely polished, great gameplay.

Yes, ANMA were extremely talented developers. Only two guys making all that wonderful stuff.
I especially liked their very first game, "No Fuss":
I got it on disk when it came with a copy of the "MSX-Mozaïek" magazine that I bought.
Always thought the music is pretty nice, too.

John: hey, me too! It was actually the first disk I ran on my new MSX with disk drive in 1993 Smile And thus also the first game I played on that new MSX.
