As an MSX user, I'm a bit disappointed with Retro Annual 2021. The only MSX content is "best MSX games of the last 20 years"; I was hoping for a full MSXdev'21 coverage like the year before. Maybe I need to try contributing...

 
 
 

You know why.



 
 
 

Tool-assisted pacifist run of Nemesis on MSX. I wouldn't have thought a shmup can be finished in such way.



 
 
 

Today feels like a Monty Python day. First Kurzgesagt posts something that reminds me of a Monty Python song, then I pay for the privilege of reading how someone will (likely) say my game is bad in print. (That the someone is right is beside the point)

 
 
 

It's only Monday and I already have trouble remembering there was a weekend and what I did then.

 
 
 

Quick impressions on Evercade VS (and Evercade)

I caved in and got another gaming console: Evercade VS. Given that I play even Switch docked almost exclusively, I went for the non-handheld version, even if that meant not being able to play Namco's collections (they're blocked on the...

 
 
 
 

Today is a day you don't want to deal with JSON.

 
 
 

Estonian entry to Eurovision Song Contest this year. But is this more Italian than American?



 
 
 

So now I've bought two of the "same" console twice; N3DS XL, N2DS XL, Evercade VS, Evercade. I am teh dumb.

 
 
 

Old Tower (Retrosouls, 2018-2020 at least) is another game released on so many platforms... at least on ZX Spectrum, Megadrive, C64. I think it's the Megadrive version that is on Evercade.



 
 
 

I expect the next Sonic the Hedgehog movie will be released in two parts, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Amy.

 
 
 

I got Mega Cat Studios Collection I on Evercade. It has Tanzer. It is good, it is hard. I suck. Your mind is in the gutter.



 
 
 

Kirby is making me feel down... It's the same post-apocalyptic stuff as in Xenoblade 2 and Splatoon.

 
 
 

Video of my game... I'm surprised that no one has told me how broken it is -- unit tests would've caught this. More in the comments...



 
 
 

Fledgling Retrodev: Mix

Not that long ago, Qix (Taito, 1981) was released on the Arcade Archives series on consoles. This was a game I recall from various other adaptations but I was never a massive fan of it. Qix on Switch. The core gameplay idea is that th...

 
 
 
 

And it's "done", or at least submitted to the compo. Even today it took me maybe 10h of working on it..


 
 
 

It's been a long way to get to this point... still a long way to go with the polish.


 
 
 

Levels, scenes, stages, zones, acts. Which generic names am I still missing from this list of small denominations?

 
 
 

When you begin recreating/cloning a classic game, there are bound to be moments when you have to stop and be amazed by how smart the original designers and developers must have been.

 
 
 

I tried THEA500 Mini briefly. I'm really not a fan of the D-pad on the controller, and I fear I'll play on the system even less than on SNES Classic Mini.

 
 
 

There's plastic and electronics inside this envelope, and I hate myself for destroying more of the world.


 
 
 

Watching RLM's video on Moonfall, and I think I'm better served by rewatching Kurzgesagt instead of the movie.



 
 
 

Poetry? The first stanza of Jerrold Zar's Ode to a Spell Checker, from early 1990s: Eye halve a spelling check her; It came with my pea sea. It plane lee marks four my revue Miss steaks aye kin knot sea.

 
 
 

Been on a bit of a Qix kick lately... I don't know if there is any reason to expect or not to expect Tim Follin created the C64 OST?



 
 
 

Another day filled with Teams meetings...
