Prisoner of War - Coming soon

Francisco Téllez de Meneses, Ghost and Minimagos developer, is currently working on a new production called Prisoner of War. As the title suggests, we have been captured and our mission is to escape from a military base by all means.

Prisoner of War includes some features that remind us of Metal Gear gameplay such as a story, dialogues, 220 screens distributed over 15 areas with different enemies, personalities and vision ability, 4 final bosses, item inventory, save states, different endings and PSG soundtrack... what more could we ask for a MSX1 game?

The game will be released in cartridge format during next Barcelona MSX meeting expected on December 2018. Stay tuned!

Nice. So who's the composer, or composers maybe? (A soundtrack done by multiple composers isn't common I believe in the indie (MSX) scene (or outside of that for that matter) but could be interesting.. Wink)

-edit: btw (nitpick mode): I notice you use !?, but that seems a bit odd to me. ?! is more common, and IMO more correct here, as it's a question principally, intermixed with an amount of astonishment. Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Still running some tests. I will announce it when we have some music done and working.

It is a debated topic, but I agree with you. :P
Alternatively, use the interrobang character (‽) :P

Santiontanon: 220 is just a bit less than the game of your avatar (I believe somewhere around 245); so it is indeed huge for an MSX1 game!!
Looks really nice. Instant buy!

I'll +1 the comment on ?! over !? -- where I work, !? is marked as incorrect and ALWAYS changed to ?!. So definitely go with ?! if you can!

Also, I am 100% buying this on day one. Fran, your games are wonderful. I wholeheartedly trust that anything you make, I'm going to enjoy!

No digital download, it is 2018 and easier to use with openmsx etc.
Not everyone has a real msx anymore.
Keeping this msx alive longer it is better that people can buy this games also.
