MSXdev contests history

The MSXdev contests have been originally created by Eduardo A. Robsy Petrus with the intention of give a big impulse to the creation of games for the first generation of the MSX system. Now, years after the first contest, the same spirit lays within the contests, although rules have been changing with the time. Now you can check all MSXdev-related information in this section.
