THE question ^^
As Krikzz is not ready and he don't know "when" (and i'm pretty sure will only have shells for his everdrive, like all shells you can find on everdrive.me, with µSD hole),
I've asked china sellers of Master everdrive clones.
The shell have a little hole (for µSD card) but will be hidden with a little black acrylic part.

For the story i've tested few MD shells (6 ; original and copies).
All "eur / us" MD shells fits Master System 1, but not the SMS 2.
Due to ~0.5mm...

Cheap chinese MD shells (like the one used for Oh Mummy Genesis by 1985 Alternativo) fits SMS 1 and SMS 2. Unfortunately, they are taller, so not really fit in the box. And they are also pretty bad (cheap plastic, no screw)


2nd thing ;
To fit perfectly the box, the manual is "MD size" (165x95mm) instead of SMS size (classique A6 ; 148x105mm) as the only box we can purchase are for MD games.

I Ordered too.

I would like to thank you @ichigobankai because of your great job making this game. I really appreciate your effort, and the result is wonderful.

I do really appreciate your effort making the manual with 5 languages, including my native one, Spanish. I guess is like buying a brand new game in the early ninety's, and in this case is a really good one.

I will always buy a game with such a big details in it.

Greetings from Spain.

Can instil pre-order?
Post Posted: Wed Jun 10, 2020 10:27 pm
The game looks great!
Are you still taking pre orders at all?
I couldn't see anything other than the keep me posted box to fill in (which I did) so not sure if I've missed the boat as only just stumbled on here :)
Cheers

Oh my freakin´ god, it looks so unbelieveable beautiful. Ichigo, your passion for the Master System is unique.
It´s the perfect point of time for such a sweet game like this, because I´m so mindf*cked by the things that happen right now that it will help me to calm down.

Merci, Fabrice, god bless you and your family.

I received my cart the other day. It really does feel like opening a brand new back in the day. The SEAL sticker is a very nice touch and the manual just adds to the authenticity.

Given the target audience (people who care a lot about physical releases), you could be slightly evil and make the SEAL sticker actually sticky so you have to destroy it to open the game - Sega ones never were, as far as I can tell. That way, people will buy two so they can leave one “sealed”... You could also shrink wrap it to achieve the same result.

Today arrive the game and very happy playing it.
A lot of work from demos to the finally release, brillant work programming also with the music.
Cart works flawlessly on real hardware, and about the fabrication smells too much work again that makes this item to other level, a really high level.
Today I played with Crusader and defeat the game with continues to see all the enemies, my favourite three are now Mummy, Werewolf and Minotaur.
Next days I will try to finish the game without using continues and the three characters.
Thanks again for all the work and make a physical release of this masterpiece.

Beaten the game with the Wizardess [Spoiler Alert]
Post Posted: Thu Jul 16, 2020 12:35 am
I´ve beaten the game with the Wizardess a few minutes ago. Before, I´ve beaten it with the Crusader. Both without continues. I really got into it, it´s incredibly addictive.

Fabrice, I love your game. The graphics, the music, the gameplay, everything is amazing including the passion you´ve created it. An article on my website is to come, both german and english. Gonna begin to work on them this week.

Hi Ichigo, last Thursday my copy got home but I had no time to enjoy it until today.

What a wonderful work!! It is awesome, I really enjoyed reading the manual in my native languaje, Spanish.
Sorry but I have no words in English to explain what I think about your game.

I really appreciate your effort on this game.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for your article ;)

Some little thing to correct: "2Minds" is infact myself and my friend Vingazole (even if he didn't work on this game)

Polaria have "only" (perfectly) done the sound part but not involved in the booklet or anything else. I've added the "thank you" for people which have helped me for the translations / texts.

Ps. I can give you some other screenshots from the game (Intro, end, new monsters, illustrations...).

The final rom will be freely available this week ;)

To everyone ; i'm waiting some informations from the administration before sending the newsletter (which is ready) and opening the 2nd run...

Ouh, merci. I´m only working with the little information I get from the web and other sources like the instruction manual itself; I will correct the article today =)

I gladly take the screenshots, I will add them to the article as a little photo album =) Thank you, Ichigo!

Unfortunately i don't have all Master System and Megadrive/Genesis models but I've played it on SMS 1 (3005-09), SMS 2 (3006-09), Megadrive 1 (1601-09, VA6) and Megadrive 2 (1631-50) without any issue.
A friend play it on a Megadrive VA4 (non tmss)

you can find also few users who have played the physical release on Mega SG without problem.

One user tells me he have black screen with the rom on Genesis (and honestly i don't know why)
