[size=140]Late last year the highly anticipated homebrew RPG Mysterious Song came out for the PC Engine CD. This traditional RPG was a remake of an old MS-DOS title and it was so well received that its sequel is now in development.

Eponasoft, the developer behind these PC Engine homebrews have uploaded a teaser/work in progress video of the sequel, that is subtitles Eternal Silence. Although it looks very similar to the first game, the video's description (detailed below) goes into more detail on some of the new features and planned extras we can expect.[/size]

[size=140]Although based on the original MSR game engine, MS2:ES introduces several new features as compared to its predecessor, many of which are standard RPG fare that probably should have been included in the original (but were left out due to the original MS-DOS MS1 not having them). New playable characters are involved in the storyline, and a whole new range of items, equipment, and spells have been added, including new Summons and abilities. True to its predecessor, battles in MS2:ES are quick (although not portrayed in this early video), and the challenge level is roughly the same. Enemies are larger and more intimidating, with some spanning almost the entire screen. There are even parts of the game where the player controls two parties at once, a la Final Fantasy 6.

Unlike MSR, MS2:ES is epic in scope and offers many hours of gameplay. Great detail has been put into both the storyline and gameplay mechanics, and special care has been taken to not disrupt all of the things that made its predecessor so much fun to play.[/size]

Doesn't the emulator Magic Engine support CD-Rom games?
