Dumb ones & Parrots is fourth production by Carambalán Studios after Burn Us, Burn Us Exp and Escape M&C (a prequel of Dumb ones & Parrots made with DAAD). This new release consist of a dungeon crawler style game for MSX2 with pseudo-3D view including some elements of the old 8 bit systems and their known rivalry.

This production features 2 different game modes:

  • 1 player: our mission consists of finishing 4 dungeons stages. Find a key with the help of some items and fight against lots of enemies if you want to reach the next level.
  • 2 players: a battle mode with your friends, be the first to exit the dungeon!

Technical specifications:

  • MSX2 (megarom of more than 1,5 MB).
  • MSX-MUSIC sound.
  • PSG sound for FX.
  • English and Spanish texts (game, box and manual).
  • Full color box and manual plus a cushion to hold the cartridge.

The pre-order process of this game has just started, from now until the end of October. Orders processing will be from end of October to the end of December and delivery during January 2021. If you want a copy, please contact them here: benjacarambalan@gmail.com

Final price is 47 € (shipping not included). Pictures attached are prototypes, so they may not represent the actual

The joke in the original title of the game is lost in translation so here's an explanation for the non-Spanish-savvy people: "Marrones & Cotorras" (literally "Browns & Parrots") sounds similar to "Dragones & Mazmorras", which is the Spanish name of Dungeons & Dragons. Smile

Despite the exelent explanation given by konamiman, when I read "Dumb ones & Parrots" I get all triggered and think it should be "translated" (not really a translation) as "Donkeys & Parrots"

For those who ask why: A donkey is a fairly common animal here in Brazil called "burro", which also is portuguese to "dumb" as in "not intelligent person". (I just learned they're also common in Spain and Portugal)

Yeah, the English title sounds a bit clunky indeed. Quite unnatural at least. But I'm not a native English speaker anyway.

Hi everyone:

Thanks for the feedback. Any idea is welcome.

I just wanted to make clear that, although we lose a set of words in Spanish when translating it into English, we win another.

Dumb ones & Parrots sounds like Dungeons & Dragons, and great care has been taken that these words weren't random or just to cover the need for pun.

This means that, during the game, the meaning of these words is discovered, whether you play in Spanish or in English.

But to discover that ... you will have to buy it ...; D

M&C BREAKING NEWS

Hello, MSX maniacs:

We inform you of something important that we may not have made clear in the previous messages. This premiere edition of the game is a deluxe one that, once we run out of stocks, WILL NOT BE RE-RELEASED. Later, the game will be available for sale in a much simpler edition through the website. But that will be when the different confinements that are taking place around the world give us a break and allow us to access materials easily and at stable prices.

At the time of writing this, we’ve still got 12 units of this special premiere edition.

If you are interested, don't be late.

Thank you for your attention. And remember... long live Givemehard!
