In the kingdom, any pretender is required to get rid of you.
That was called “Draconic Throne”.

In this game we play the role of the dragon for once, instead of the brave soldier. Sounds like a refreshing role reversal, doesn’t it? With the dragon’s devastating firepower under our control, we’ll eliminate all of the enemies in order to defeat the prince that awaits at the end of each level. Once we defeat the prince, we’ll enter a new age with more enemies, which are different and more difficult to beat each time.

Don’t leave any of those puny humans alive. Burn ’em all!

Pretty nice to see a non-children theme for a platform where 99% of users are over 30 years-old. Smile

It was great to be a beta tester, while it was still in closed beta, even played the beta live on Twitch. Today I´ve added a cheat for Draconic Throne on CheatMSX, which allows you to start in Age 13.

Enjoy! :RNFF:

Ladies and gentlemen, I respectfully announce you can get the latest version 1.11 at MSXdev website. Now your dragon have a battle against colorful troops as follows.

Please update copies in your hand or web mirror.

In this game, you will get not only higher score but an appropriate title to your good playing. See also the following link. That will be a great pleasure of mine if everyone shows each other the title he or she actually got here.

I say deeply thank for your many applause and kindly supports of the beta testers.

Very cool mr. Ghost, you make interesting productions, I do like your style ;-)

I watched a couple of your vids on your channel, I think it would be rather cool if you'd start an (MSX) dev video log or something - I think I'm not the only one who would/could enjoy that Wink
(Would you be interested in MSX2 dev as well btw?)

And what are you singing about in your songs I wonder? Smile

You do look a bit like the character in your profile picture. Is it a family member of yours? Wink

Thanks for sharing & keep it up!

That is ME! Tongue

The picture, my favorite self-portrait was taken 6 years ago at cloister of Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth, Vaison-la-Romaine, France. To visit romanesque church in southern Europe is as lovely hobby as MSX for me and my wife.
Anyway, you can watch me recently making a speech to the beta testers of the game as follows.

Yes, it's a cool picture, looks like it could have been from ancient times ;-)

I had the impression the chin didn't match up, but you're making a certain (facial) expression I figure, and so it is you after all, cool Wink

I had a laugh listening to your French railway picture shooting story btw Wink

Cheers friend! Wink
