Skullkeep's greatest mystery

Post by hana35 » 16-Dec-17 07:57

Is Skullkeep made in Japan?

The release is as follows
PC-9801 December 1993
PC-9821 1994
FM Towns January 1994
sega cd March 1994
Amiga 1995
PC DOS 1995

As for me, play did all this above and arrived for one conclusion

I think, the rough plot was produced by the FTL company,
in fact the Japanese victor entertainment company produced the dungeon master 2 skullkeep

How does everybody think?

The game was developed by FTL team in the US, and released in Japan first.

The wiki is written as it is, but I think it is wrong.
There is no capacity for FTL to develop PC - 9801, FM - Towns, Sega CD.
(Victor Entertainment Corporation is a large company with 400 employees exclusively from Japan's Dungeon Master to Dungeon Master Nexus)
I can assert that Victor Entertainment created skullkeep for PC-9801, FM-Towns, Sega CD.
I think that FTL provided a story and graphics
Of course, in addition to Victor's own story (Minion, Meteor Metal: 流星剣)

What do you mean here by "created" :?: Possibly the Victor team adapted the original DM2 code for the japanese systems (PC-9801/9821, FM-Towns & Sega CD) -- but certainly DM2 comes from FTL. You can also check the beta version that came on PC months before the first release. There were almost everything -- and actually even more ! -- that is found in the final version. Not even saying the DM2 engine comes from the original DM1 code.
However, Victor did specific musics used only in japanese version.
