I hope I am the only one to answer this request ^_^; (unless it is a second hand one, which would be ok)
You can purchase any of our games on our online shop:

It is both in cartridge format and on digital format.
Please take in mind there is also an Intellivision version of this game which is currently not in stock.
You can also send me an email as usual and I will get back to you ASAP.
Thank you!

I didn't knew there was a Intellivision port! Please let me know when there will be a new batch. I'd really enjoyed playing TSoGT and would like to see it on my IntV, too.

Will do!
Actually, the Intellivision version has many improvements over the msx2 version, ironically enough ^_^;
Multi-directional smooth scroll, animated backgrounds, smarter enemies with more attack patterns, a lot more items and new abilities, a different, longer ending and many more things.
We didn't want to do the same thing, we wanted to adapt it to the console capabilities the best we could.
Here you can see a video of this version (take into consideration that the intellivision console is a 1979 second generation console with less than a fourth of the msx1 capabilities (msx1 is third generation)...
For example, graphically speaking it only has 64 "screen 1" patterns for all the graphics which are shared with the hardware sprite definitions, and only 8 hardware mono chrome sprites, so lots of "on the fly" redefinition tiles are constantly going on, carefully scheduled in order to get this results.

Doing this version was indeed a fascinating experience for me.

The only thing that stopped me a bit were the quite square/tiley graphics... Is it using screen 4 or something?

No, it is screen 5.
The square/tiley backgrounds are made that way on pruppose, like most JRPG's from the 1987 (16x16 pixels tiles) but with a more modern style which clearly differentiates between the foreground and the background planes.
As I said, this is not for everyone, just for people who enjoyed these kind of games back in the mid-80's.

@Kai Magazine: I have never played those Japanese RPGs and I really enjoyed playing The Sorrow of Gadhlan' Thur. In my opinion it is a game for everyone Smile
