Stories

The project was finished in 2018, but before releasing it, Gryzor87 said "Hey, I know some guys in the retro scene who could actually port it to the real MSX". Manuel Pazos and Fernando García jumped in, did their (amazing) magic and turned a MSX-looking PC game into an actual MSX game. And they put it in a 64k cartridge!
