Post MSX/PC88 Pamphlet
hey, long time no see

just wanted to share with you this recent find of mine
It's a pamphlet for the early PC releases
It's too big to scan it so I had to take pics, sorry for the crappy quality

What I find interesting is Gillian's art in the middle
I have always assumed that was not the original art (or at least not from the original team) and only meant for the MCD version in the western market.
Also, I'd like to know what's written in that blue box re: Metal Slave....if only I could speak Japanese

The manual for both MSX2 and PC88 have the Gillian art as well =)

I totally forgot to scan this piece, it must have been misplaced.

Thanks for sharing them!

Yeah, that's pretty sad. And the fact that it's 27 years old already and there weren't many game boxes to begin with doesn't make it better.
Though there's not many of us either, if you know what I mean.

and here are the snatcher title fonts in this 1986 movie poster.
don't know if the poster was made after or before the game.
