Last edition of MSXdev winner Lilly's Saga - The Stones of Evergreen by Fabulous8bit, gets a physical release available at French publishers Côté Gamers. This MSX2 masterpiece will be reborn as an enhanced version, delivered on a standard MSX size cartridge in a full-sized cover box, complete with all bells and whistles. Reserve your copy today.

When the MSX platform was considered obsolete in the early nineties, it was hard to imagine that we - the system's fans - would ever see anymore physical cartridge games being published for that 8bit wonder. But, perhaps to everyone's surprise, we see more and more games being released on a physical format these days. Cartridges are hip! And with today's means in electronics, they can be produced in a relatively cheap manner. With that in mind, it wasn't a matter of if, but more like when Lilly would go physical on you.

Ranking at #1 in the MSXdev22 compo, Lilly's Saga follows in the footsteps of Bufonada, another MSXdev22 entry, that was recently announced to see a release as a cartridge version published by the same French company. Which French company, you may ask? Well, founded in 2014, Côté Gamers is keeping retro consoles and computers alive by publishing games on all media. A great initiative, which is a treat for MSX fans as well.

When playing the MSX2 platformer action game Lilly’s Saga - The Stones of Evergreen, you will set out to retrieve stolen gems while exploring strange new worlds. A game full of secret passages, hidden treasures, fluid game play, smooth graphics with ditto background scroll, and an excellent MSX-Music sound track. The game runs on MSX2 or higher with at least 128 kB VRAM. The cartridge offers space for save-games, with up to six slots stored directly onto the cartridge itself. All on all, a very impressive debut from Fabulous8bit.

Publisher Côté Gamers has a reservation page open for you to secure a copy of Lilly's Saga. For €45 (+shipping) you can expect your package to arrive in the first quarter of 2023. In there you will find the premium edition of the game, including game-save on cartridge, and additional music. Boxed in a beautiful large size box with a full color booklet containing the manual and "making-of", available in either English or Spanish.

Sorry for my stupid question: Can I play Lilly on my VG 8235 without any additional Musichardware?

We have hardware issues. Crossing fingers it’s not long now before the problems are fixed, so we can go ahead and print.
