Zemina (재미나) was a South Korea-based pirate company that primarily developed for the MSX computer (which was popular in Asia) and Sega SG-1000, and started using the Master System as a platform for their products later. Their flagship series was the Super Boy series (1989-92).
History[edit | edit source]
Not much is known about Zemina, although several of their games have copyright dates of 1987. Probably the first game they made was an unofficial English translation of the 1986 MSX Konami game King Kong 2: Yomigaeru Densetsu. Their next game was possibly Won-Si-In, although this is not exactly known as the game has no copyright date, just Zemina's logo and company name.
In mid 1992, Zemina's internal programmers left to form Open Corp..
Aliases[edit | edit source]
Currently, there are no known aliases for Zemina. Other Korean developers that may be related include Clover, Topia, Prosoft, FA Soft, Zemmix, and Micro Zemina. The last two are more obvious than the first four, but it is still possible that any of those could be an alias for Zemina.
Daewoo Zemmix[edit | edit source]
The Zemmix is a video game console made by Daewoo Electronics, although it was really just a MSX computer fit inside a video game console-like case instead of the MSX's usual setup. As the Zemmix was just a re-cased MSX, all of Zemina's MSX products are compatible with the Zemmix. The lifespan of the console was also similar to the MSX, lasting from 1984-95.
