The developers were exposed to MSX when they were students.
Therefore, it was released under the name of MSX0. It was April Fool’s Day: https://fukuno.jig.jp/615
But the current IchigoJam BASIC has many different specifications from MSX-BASIC.
Most of them are due to the capacity limitation of LPC1114.

IchigoJam was set at a low price (It’s over 1500 yen), assuming a learning kit for students.
It was time to introduce programming education in Japan.
Currently in Japan, there are programming classes using IchigoJam,
and there are schools that introduce IchigoJam in education.

IchigoJam has IN and OUT terminals and can be easily operated with BASIC.
Therefore, IchigoJam came to be used as a control of electronic work.
Of course, you can also display it on the screen to create games and enjoy it.
