X-Space – 1995

 

Phuntec Studio’s roots are on the old (but still not forgotten) MSX Platform.

During the mid 90s Patrick was part of Totally Chaos, a group of MSX enthusiasts from the Netherlands, who made several editions of (interactive) disk magazines, demos and this game: X-Space.

earth was destroyed by an impact of a huge meteor.
Fortunately a lot of people were able to escape to space stations around earth …
The discovery of the universe went on, and people settled in different places in the universe.

On a piece of former earth, called x-space, a crazy scientist had settled, his name was Lop Niwre ….
He organized crazy shows and games.

The candidates were kidnapped from other parts of space.

It was a beautiful morning on zuma-8 and Patrick and Tom, two relaxed youngsters were kidnapped by Niwre

and teleported to x-space…..

They had to join an insane race, called the PhraserRace ….
Tom and Patrick were forced in so-called Phrasers and had to hit one another ……

The winner got free, the loser was brutally killed…
