An msx2 game that is pratically an msx1 game. MSX2 can do far more than this.
the author could have achieved better consideration by doing this for a plain msx1
Horrible pattern based gfx with the beautiful limitations of screen 4.

I love screen 4 Smile. The palette support and the extra spites add a lot of value compared to MSX1, and it’s very quick to update so gives quite different gameplay than screen 5 would. SMW and Deva are using screen 4 as well btw.

This game looks awesome.

Only thing I would wish for is smooth scroll. I get that it would impose a strict 16 ms timing budget (as frame drops are much more noticeable in a smooth scroll), so I would understand that it’s something the developer chooses to avoid so that development can stay unconstrained by that. However the player already moves smoothly when moving away from the screen edges, so in that sense I think the constraint is already there.

Looks really cool I think :).

Also I asked the developer whether he intends to add smooth scroll, and he said that it was something he wanted to do in the future, but needs to secure some free VRAM for double buffering first.

Murakata Tohji added Singular Stone soundtrack playlist on SoundCloud.
Lately I understood that being Natsune Miku used as game character, author feels that this game cannot have a public audience, I think this is unfortunate. oO sad

This game looks and sounds amazing. I was looking forward to this one

No public audience means he shares it with only a few friends? thats unfortunate indeed!

No, you’re jumping to the wrong conclusion, see the Youtube comments for the context of Giangiacomo’s remark. On Twitter ipheion78 said he will make it available overseas, and is also working on an English manual. So do not worry :).
