Atari and Commodore 64 game ‘Fort Apocalypse’ will get MSX port for MSXDev’18

The MSX enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy, using their favourite machine, ‘Fort Apocalypse’, a game initially released in 1982 for the Atari 8-bit and Commodore 64. It was announced by SoCal Studio that they are working on a port of the game for the MSX!

No, this is not the 4th entry for the contest! To be more precise, SoCal said that they have been working on the game for a few years already and, inspired by MSXDev, they decided to finally finish it for the contest. Although the source code of the original Atari game has been available for a few years on Github, the port is based on the C64 version. If you, like me, are curious about the differences between the two original platform, I found a YouTube video that shows the two versions – they look very similar indeed.

The MSX port developer also revealed that Steve Hales, Atari 8-bit version programmer, gave written permission for the port!
