I haven't had the chance to play it yet, but santiontanon has rarely disappointed me... the gameplay video of Westen House looks pretty amazing for an MSX(1) in my opinion.



 
 
 

The Menace from Triton (Brain Games, 2020)

Konami's Nemesis is arguably one of the most popular game series on MSX. For Santiago Ontañón's The Menace from Triton (2020), that is also a key inspiration. The author has also stated that Steredenn (Pixelnest Studio, 2...

 
 
 
 

Sir Clive Sinclair has died (aged 81). RIP. Kim Justice's video on him from 5 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1tWYN4dthw

 
 
 

I envy those in C64 scene.



 
 
 

Time to start Pushing Onwards for 10h and get things done. Back after 10 hours or so.



 
 
 

Any of you familiar with The Forgotten City? I only learned of it thru Super Bunnyhop's video review and I am intrigued. (Present-day person in an ancient Rome city, curse, timeloop, lots of talking, some mystery?)

 
 
 

MSXdev'21 -- ten of my favourites

MSXdev is a long-running game dev compo for the MSX computers. The deadline for entries of the 2021 edition was the end of August 2021, and a record number of entries took part. Coincidentally, the rewards were also higher than ever be...

 
 
 
 

TIL there is such a thing as Cirno Day, and it is today.



 
 
 

Boletes, a fried egg and some persillade. Add rye bread. I feel so pretentious right now.


 
 
 

That's 30 MSXdev'21 entries (so far; today's the deadline), so it's one for every day of September. I expect Alien Attack (shmup), PAC-01 (Pacman 256 demake-ish) and Raven (Q*bert-ish) to rank at the top in some order.

 
 
 

The sweetest way to start relaxing after work -- watch a new video titled The Great Maple Syrup Heist.

 
 
 

This says a lot about our society. And the site.


 
 
 

Got Spelunky on Switch. Second run, after collecting the idol and avoiding the boulder, that went to ram into Kali's altar + shopkeeper. Cue death by shopkeeper in the next level. Is this life?

 
 
 

What Quake in 2021 taught me: Even if games don't age, we do.

 
 
 

Me: I'd like Qix or a clone on eShop. Also me: Not this kind of clone. Am I being too picky?

 
 
 

Aaand I'm again far too interested in writing another adventure game over actually fixing the game engine so that it could support this concept. Urgh.

 
 
 

I feel movie titles here haven't been translated to Finnish in ages. Good or not... Gisaengchung is Parasite. Guess which movies were called (or had subtitle of) after translating back: The 8th Passenger, Destroyer, Rita Hayworth - The Key to Escape?

 
 
 

No idea if anyone cares, and this is not a recommendation, but Kaze and the Wild Masks is -33% on eShop in Europe (20e as opposed to 30e).

 
 
 

Wait, Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe isn't out yet? Below, video where the right follow-up is: "And then 2020 happened."



 
 
 

a) "This is an actual email that the team received a few weeks ago." (in 2012) Really? b) Why did it take me years to understand how Raph does talk about the game, c) Raphael trailer > Xxxxxxx trailer.



 
 
 

Ever had acid reflux in your nose wake you up in the middle of the night?

 
 
 

Not bad loot, given how hot and dry the summer was.


 
 
 

I don't have pic of a tarp handy for #covertoid but this is my favourite cover of this piece of music.



 
 
 

Pieces of puzzle stuck in the head, not expressed. The message folds into an abnormality, seen through a hall of funhouse mirrors and hallucinations of lizard people. What do I say? I say things I don't say, I don't say things I say. When 255 characters i



 
 
 

If I have no words, do I necessarily need them?
