Major Release ~ Hourai High Celebrates 15 Years - Now in English Adventures of Hourai High
# Posted on April 19th, 2011 05:50 PM by Gideon Zhi
Fifteen years ago today, Hourai Gakuen no Bouken was unleashed upon an unsuspecting Japanese public. It does not seem to have made much of a splash, which is unfortunate because it´s quite a neat little game! But today we honor its 15th birthday with a complete English translation of the title. I hope you enjoy playing it! (I´m certainly going to enjoy washing my hands of it!)

Major Release ~ Ancient Magic is out. Ancient Magic
# Posted on December 19th, 2010 01:31 AM by Gideon Zhi
Ancient Magic is a fairly generic little RPG for the SNES by the much-maligned Hot-B. See if you can spot their advert for another of their products in the game! Despite its rather pedestrian roots, the game takes several surprising twists towards the end, and is generally worth sticking it out even if the wrap-up (or lack thereof) is a bit of a let down. As a note, there´s more game past "THE END." Also as a note, do set your window speed to "fast" in the in-game options menus - it´ll improve your experience dramatically.

A godawful amount of work went into this, probably more than was worth it. If I can find the time sometime in the next week or so, I´ll put up some kind of postmortem showing off before-and-afters of a bunch of the interface rearrangements. Fun fact, in the original Japanese version, you couldn´t see your max HP or MP in battle! You can in mine, though!

And now I´m going to bed.

Major Release ~ Tactics Ogre, available now (in Al Bhed!) Tactics Ogre ~ Let Us Cling Together
# Posted on April 1st, 2010 03:31 AM by Gideon Zhi
Frankly, I´m sick to death of looking at this thing. There are still a few minor cosmetic issues, all detailed in the readme, but they shouldn´t really alter your enjoyment of the game on the whole.

You´re welcome.

Major Release ~ Mystic Ark´s out. Mystic Ark
# Posted on September 22nd, 2009 07:33 AM by Gideon Zhi
After ten days of extreme beta testing and ten more(ish) of extreme midnight oil burning, Mystic Ark is finally available for public consumption. Do please be sure to read the readme, as it contains several notes about the translation itself.

And yes, this should work on your SNES, should you have a copier.

Major Release ~ Two Million Hits! Live-A-Live v2.0 Deluxe Released! Live-A-Live
# Posted on May 28th, 2008 07:38 PM by Gideon Zhi
Not much else to say, really. It´s been a long road but we´re finally here, and from my *own* experience playing the game today, the wait was damn well worth it. I hope that you all feel the same way!

The new version includes...
-560 kilobytes of English script: Twice the size of the original translation!
-Main dialogue, menu, and battle fonts are now fully proportional!
-Each chapter now has its own unique font - even the Japanese version can´t say this! Live-A-Live now sports a total of ten different fonts.
-Kung Fu names are now Chinese, not Japanese!
-Items, techniques, and equipment names expanded dramatically due to new fonts!

Major Release ~ Metal Max Returns: Roll out! Metal Max Returns
# Posted on November 6th, 2007 12:13 PM by Gideon Zhi
After possibly the longest playtest period I´ve ever had to slog through, Metal Max Returns is finally ready!

Metal Max is an open, nonlinear RPG with a heavy focus on sidequests and tank tweaking. The main game has you chasing bounty heads and finding new vehicles for your entourage, but there�s so much other stuff to do! You can pimp your tanks with decals and accessories, you can buy furniture and wall hangings for your home, play with little critters that eat your money and grow to enormous proportions, or enjoy a host of minigames. Go hunting for this week´s target and become a rich and famous bounty hunter!

Major Release ~ Danzarb Is Done Dragon Squadron: Danzarb
# Posted on August 24th, 2007 07:31 AM by Gideon Zhi
It´s late and I´m tired, so I´ll keep this brief and let the project´s subsite do the talking. Danzarb´s out. Enjoy, and for god´s sake, if you have problems getting it to run, READ THE README!

Sincerest apologies to DaMarsMan for neglecting to add his contribution (script formatting) to the readme. It´s been fixed.
