The Dutch Nintendo magazine [N]gamer seems to be very MSX minded as they are responsible for 3 of the 32 nominations for the MSX in the Media Challenge so far. They were responsible for the first nomination, as Engine Software mentioned their MSX roots in an interview, the 14th nominee, as MSX got mentioned in an article on Gradius and now they have given is a 32nd nomination, thanks to Twotribes, a Dutch gaming development company that has its roots in the MSX group Fony. Their MSX game Eggbert was released on Gameboy Color by Capcom under the name Toki Tori a few years ago. Later the game was re-released on several other platforms like mobile phones and PocketPC.

Currently, Two Tribes are working on a Gameboy Advance game called Three Tribes for which they are still looking for a publisher. An interview with Two Tribes in [N]Gamer tells the full story on the history and future of Two Tribes and, of course, MSX gets mentioned in there. You can find a scan in the list of nominees. If you want to have a look at Eggbert, you can download it for free over here.

He could've linked to Nintendo, MSX Association, the official Gradius website and Microsoft too... So what's your point?
