This week I found in a book a few MSX games which were unknown to me. Among them was a text adventure with basic graphics written by Steve Lucas called Snow White. I searched the internet but could not find any site mentioning these games.

For the c64 you have this great site Gamebase64 with information on all known published games for the c64. I have been searching the internet but most MSX sites do not have information on games printed originally in magazines and books. Is there a MSX site where you can find this information on games like Granny Crunch, Jantje Wip, het geheim van Landusie and for instance above mentioned Snow White?

This is the database you're searching for : https://www.generation-msx.nl/
But it does not list any of the games you've mentioned.

Indeed, sadly there's no info about MSX type-in games found in books or magazines, at least occidental ones; because from Japan, you can found pages like this with info from マイコン BASIC Magazine: http://s-sasaji.ddo.jp/bm/pr_msx.htm
These japanese listings usually have only names, no program listings are included tho... :(

I know Generation-MSX but unfortunately it is far from complete. I'm interested in text adventures and a lot of them are missing.

Well that would be a possibility if I find some spare time Smile but I was looking for a place where I can find games I'm still missing/do not know like I found in this book, but I understand that there doesn't exist a database like that.

How to add a game to Generation MSX? Does that mean submitting to the (Generation MSX's-)forum??
