MSXDev’17 – MSX Development Content has been announced!

MSXDev’17 is a go, and the organizers are back preparing the iconic MSX development contest. This year, the MSXDev team is asking your input about the contest, rules, prizes, or whatever you think would make it a great contest.

MSXDev’15 edition had a lot of road bumps, mainly for the lack of interest, even from the judges (you can read more about it here), but at the end the organizers were able to pull it off, announcing the winners last June.

The 2017 contest will have two categories: MSX Classic and MSX No Limits. The first category accepts programs with no expansions of any kind, just a first generation MSX as it was conceived, while the latter will take anything that runs on any MSX!

There will be money prizes for the first three winners in each category, but the value of the prizes will depend on donations.

Most important, the contest will run during the entire year of 2017. Here are the important dates:

  • Start of the contest: January 1st 2017
  • Deadline for entries: October 1st 2017
  • Jury reports: From October 5th until November 25th. Also, a public poll will be open on the MSXdev website
  • Final results: December 1st
