My Sacred Place - The 25th entry into the MSXDev'22 competition is an action strategy RPG

Another retro gaming news story to keep you company, as thanks to Saberman contacting us this morning, we've been told that a brand new game for the MSX1 called 'My Sacred Place' is available to play. This game developed by Mario Cavalcanti for the MSXDev 22 competition, is an action strategy RPG in which you have to protect your village’s garden from the clutches of the fearsome Garks. To coincide with this news, we've also got a new video for you to view as a first look to the game.

The colour palette of My Sacred Place is optimized on MSX2 (or higher) computers

"Here is what the competition describes about the game story : At night, when it’s dark and shadows disappear, the world changes into a dangerous place luring many demons in. Submitting to that lure will easily result in a quick death for the untrained. But to kung-fu fighter Yu Tao, the dark is very appealing, as it’s a good opportunity to show off his mad skills. Yu Tao is fast as lightning. In fact, it’s a little bit frightening. The world is his dojo and his chopping game is on".

"When demons appear after sun-set, Yu Tao is the sole protector of the sacred village garden. What happens to the garden, happens to Yu Tao, so make sure he gets rid of them nasty Garks. Garks are terrifying fire-red furry demons that love to eat veggies. While chewing stuff up is their game, it’s ginger root that scares them".

"During the day time, Yu Tao needs training to earn money for protective ginger and offensive silver daggers. Armed with just that and some deadly fists, Yu Tao is ready when night falls. With the help of Aris the Witch and Isao the sage, and of course those mad fighting skills, he might fulfill his destiny after all".

  2. Thank you so much for talking about My Sacred Place. Thanks also to Saberman for making a gameplay video. You need to place the ginger seedlings in the magic soil to create the protective barrier against demons. The game manual has more information.
