First entries for the MSXdev'13 challenge have been already announced at Karoshi Development Boards. The first one is Malaika from Relevo Videogames: there is not additional information about this project yet, but we have the strong belief that Karoshi's prehistoric princess will be the star of this new MSX game!

Malaika Prehistoric Quest is a side scrolling platformer that was released by Karoshi Corporation in 2006 as an entry to the MSXdev'06 challenge. The game, that featured smooth scrolling and a huge variety of stages despite its ROM size, ended up in the second place of the contest.

The deadline for MSXdev'13 closes on June 15th, so there is just a month to go for entering the contest! After the deadline the MSX community can choose the winner of this year's compo through a poll on the MSXdev forums. Main prize keeps increasing through user donations, so if you want to support MSXdev'13 with a donation, no matter its size, follow the instructions of the donations or sponsors sections of the boards.

Awesome news!! I hope you are also still working on earlier announced games like HSA and Baboon, because those games looked promising.

Problem with those projects is that they do not fit inside a 16KB ROM, so we needed to come up with something new.
