From this day forward Darkstone will have a new logo.
The old logo won’t go away; it will be kept for specific products where the old style fits best.

Darkstone designed the new logo of the #msxdev compo. a fresh green/yellow logo! Check it out @ MSX-Banzai!.

Some time its just nice to do some tile art on a tms9928


Lord S.M.Zett has created a new MSX case mod. This time he used a well known style called ‘steampunk’. Although the motherboard comes from  an NMS8245, this new MSX is much smaller, and has a case mainly made from wood.

2011’s MSX fair will be held on Saturday the 22nd of January. The location is the big room (B3) of Wijkcentrum (community centre) Hatert in Nijmegen and it opens for visitors at 10am. Darkstone will be there!

Idar is a region on the island of Daq, somewhere in Earth’s history. When
a lord (or land lord) of Idar knows he’s soon about to pass away, a new
lord will have to be chosen. This is done by means of an old game, to be
played by the lord’s house.
In the shape of a traditional board game, four aspiring land lords strive

for the honorable title of lord. It’s a fierce battle where the dice will point out the winner.

MSXdev10 entry

After BEEZ in 2006, it’s time for a new Darkstone game for msxdev10.

It’s called: DAQ Lord of Idar. A combi of a board-game and an action/dice game.

Hopefully a first place in the contest.

Welcome to the new Darkstone website.

Not all of our actions/products are on this page yet.

That’s nice! An nms8255 with a leatherlook. Why did they not make it standard like this?

An NMS8220 case painted with a blue/black/silver-like snake skin.

It’s alive! This msx mod got the spring feeling.

An NMS8220 was sacrificed for this project.

No change in hardware except for the leds.

A great co-op between Darkstone and Up-soft.

A puzzle game that will stress you out!

First game totaly created By Lord S.M.Zett with help from Medussa.

This game is for msx2 and completely made whit the msx it self.
