Did a small update. The only major thing it changes is that there's now a countdown until the boulder instead of it happening immediately once you leave the backyard. Of course, it's now also possible to get squashed by it.
Also added a few more death scenes - try to find them! - along with some easter eggs.
I didn't really want to do this since it being in a foreign language is one of the major aspects, but I understand that playing a text adventure like this might be a bit much.
Have you tried plugging it on Spanish language forums? (The Spanish section on MSX Ressource Center comes to mind.) I understand it's no perfect Spanish, but some people might have particular fun with that.

That's awesome! Thanks!! I'll be sure to link it.
A couple of extra fun bits:
-The passwords are references to movies parodied by MST3K. This is more evident in the English version, obviously. The exception is "What is Grass?" (the first password), a reference to a short done by Rifftrax, one of the successors of MST3K. (It's 99 cents here and well worth it: www.rifftrax.com/shorts/at-your-fingertips-grasses )
-Get all of the items from the store, exit, type in "ME GUSTA METH" then walk back in. This is part of my initiative where every game I ever make will have a Breaking Bad reference.
-I've never been quite sure of a proper translation for "jamoneria" but I called it the "ham store" in the walkthrough (and maybe the English version, if it's referenced.)
-Some of the references to other games were intentional, like the power plant blowing up if you put in the wrong code (Maniac Mansion). Deciphering that code, however, is unintentionally similar to that same game, where a passcode was hidden in the high score table of an arcade game.
-The Spanish word for "Swede" is "Sueco", while the word for dirty is "suico". They look and sound similar, especially when put together ("Sueco suico" or "filthy Swede"), but again, I hadn't thought that through before I made it up.
-The game really hates trees for some reason. Try looking at them in the backyard and the park.
