the fact that you want to include act-3 is rather amazing. there was talk about upgrading the reproduction carts if/when the street fighter game is completed. it isn't out of the realm of possibility that perhaps your finished game could see a reproduction run, complete with box and manual.

i have not viewed the msx version of snatcher for years. do you feel the graphics will merge well with the sega cd sprites? i also can't recall what parts were censored when the game was brought to the sega cd. was there anything in act-3 that would need to be addressed and/or uncensored?

i don't know how you feel about the nudity found in the original game. i feel it was how the game was designed to be, and representative of a dystopian future. i always felt that they hurt the integrity of the game by removing it, yet i fully understand why they did it for the younger american audience.

if you are going to bring over the 3rd act, have you given any consideration to the extended intro that was added to the sega cd version?

since the snatcher DS demo was release, i've wanted to see a remake/port to another system. the 3d environments of the vb would be really great for this game. keep up the good work!


That actually sounds amazing! A full Snatcher Game on one cartridge. I can only only hope the memory holds up.

Lol, I'll try my best to convert 16 bit sega cd sprites to 8 bit MSX-looking spites for Act 3. As for the censored parts in Act 3, in the japanese version, Elijah Modnar is called Elijah Madnar. Also the american version (Sega CD) gave Elijah longer hair than the PC Engine did. When I convert the Sega Cd sprites back to 8 bit, I'll be sure to make the adjustments so it is more like the Japanese version ;)

As for the nudity in some ports of the game, I'm going to exclude it. I understand your point that it adds to the "dystopian feel" to the game, but at the same time Kojima removed it from future installments and ports of his game (Playstation and Sega Saturn) because of the graphic nature. Also, I just don't feel comfortable personally designing a game with it for the Virtual Boy, a console that has such innocent fun games, and I'm probably not going to mention this fact again. I hope you understand.

On a lighter note I have thought about the extended intro of the Sega Cd version and decided I'm probably going to include it, in addition to this I want to put the manga opening in as well. This however, probably won't be in the demo, but will be in the final game.

Thank you all for so much support! I hope the final product is pleasing!

Just for fun, this is the box art I designed a while back:

I fully understand your point of view and I respect it. I'm glad you are considering the extended intro. This project could end up being THE snatcher game to play.

The VB community is small, most of the hardcore supporters are here at this very forum. So while your project will probably never get the spotlight it may deserve, it will always be a cherished gem among our homebrew collections!

As a side to this obviously amazing work. Have you seen or considered Super Deformed Snatcher on MSX at all? This is pretty much Zelda/FF gameplay in the Snatcher universe.

Regardless I would like to see a VB text adventure game definitely and what could be better than Snatcher?

Love to see the progress on this. Thank you kindly :-)

It's disheartening to inform you, but Red Metal passed a way in late December. Thank you guys for expressing interest in his project. It brought him a lot of excitement and he talked about it with me a lot.

This is such sad news. My heart goes out to his friends and family. I wish him the best for the life there after or at least what he believed in.
