I was actually going to ask a mod today if I can start a topic. I'm pleased to see one here already.

I've confirmed Takashi Tokita, the main man behind Live-A-Live, which should be good. I've been promised quite a few introductions to people, though I don't feel comfortable mentioning their names when they're not definite yet (two are from popular RPG series, one involving tanks, the other demons).

One interesting aspect, which I hope the fan-translation community will approve of, is bringing up the subject of fan-translations. I spoke briefly with Gideon Zhi about this (simply because I had his email and know his work dovetails with some of my interviews - but I'm happy to discuss it with anyone in the community).

I'm wondering to what extent Japanese developers know of fan-translators in the west. We've all read the public statements of groups, such as those behind Policenauts and Mother 3, who approached the respective publishers in the hope of negotiating some kind of official deal to use the translation patches, and were shot down without even a second thought. And we know that XSeed has officially licensed the work of fan-translators for commercial releases.

Where appropriate, and as delicately as possible, I'd like to discuss this topic with developers. For example one of my key interviewees, who I am very excited to speak with, was behind the Lennus games (aka: Paladin's Quest). Although he doesn't have the rights to Lennus II, I'm curious as to what he thinks of the fact that fans spent 10 years bringing a patch to fruition.

Of course some of my interviewees do hold positions of authority, so I'd like to ask if they're open to the idea.

Because let's be honest, it's good for the translators, it's good for the fans, it's good for the publishers. It's good for everyone, isn't it? Re-releases of classic games are big business, surely it makes sense to discuss the possibility of fan-translators and publishers working together?

This isn't a guarantee of anything - it's quite possible many won't want to comment on the subject at all.


Failing that, there's going to be some really fun recollections in the book.

That is very exciting to hear, and I think it's no surprise that the people around these parts are extremely curious if the folks on the other side are aware of our efforts at all. An official endorsement will be hard to coax out of anyone because of the legal muddyness surrounding fan projects of any kind, but a simple "Yep, heard about it and it made me happy to see it" would already be short of being knighted for our efforts ;)

I believe some statements indicating approval were made in the past...not that I remember exactly. I think one guy who was involved with the Front Mission series made some positive remarks about unoffical translations or so? I could swear this topic came up on this very board before with at least one example.

Of course it happened a few times over the years, but it's extremely rare. It's always good to hear it from different devs.

Found what I vaguely remembered:
http://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q3-2007/071207a.html

When asked what made Square Enix decide to take a chance on bringing Front Mission to the US again (the fifth game in the series was notably skipped), the response was that there was one member of the team that was very passionate about the game, and wanted to give players in the United States the chance to experience. He felt that Front Mission 3 and 4 proved that there is a userbase, and since the DS is currently very popular, the thinking went, "Why not give it a try?" On a similar note, we told Mr. Sakamoto that a fan translation had been done some years ago for Front Mission 1, and asked how he felt about such efforts. The producer replied that he actually found them very encouraging -- it's something the developers should be doing, but because they're not, the fans are doing it instead. He stated that he'd like to be able to give something back to the fans, and would like to thank personally each of the fans that worked on the translation.

Woha. And I googled that "manually". I now just found out it's listed in the Fan translation article of Wikipedia. Doh.

Just wanted to bump this and remind people this is still a thing, less than a week to go!

For a while things looked a bit bleak, progress grinded down to a crawl in week 2 and 3. But then someone decided to back the £5000 tier and generated a ton of momentum for the final stretch. It's making good progress again now and only ~£3500 are left to go. 975 backers so far, I'm honestly surprised the target audience for this is this big.

Really? I'd have assumed the number of people who like Japanese games would be absolutely massive. I mean, didn't every single one of us play a classic 8-bit or 16-bit console game at some point in our lives?

Anyway, thanks for the bump.

Yuzo Koshiro is now onboard, and I am right now in the process of organising a Platinum tier by a Japanese artist. Keep your eyes peeled on the updates.

Just threw in my lot with an 80 pound pledge. I'm very excited about this project, and with only about 200 pounds left to go as I post, it should get funded. If you find out about any unreleased games for the SNES, I certainly would be interested in hearing about them.

I'd prefer a bound book, myself...not sure if he said he was going to actually print it or just do an e-book, but I suppose there are always possibilities.

Seems like it ought to be done in time for Christmas.

It's probably a matter of scope. There are tons of books focusing on one particular era, console, company or game series, most of which never see english publication of course, but going for the untold stories of the unsung heroes of video game development isn't the most commercial approach, and as such probably isn't the most common, either.

Is it? The book is about the Untold History. Mr Tokita has been interviewed on FF4 extensively, and Parasite Eve, and other mainstream games.

I've only seen some interview material on L-A-L, which is a shame, because he mentioned it was his first game in full control, so it's special to him. I also like it because of its experimental nature. So I want to spend time discussing this. Plus his role as artist on Square's Tom Sawyer game, and his adaptation of the Parasite Eve novel.

I might not even mention the words Final and Fantasy in the interview. It's all about the cognitio enigmatica.

I'd like to hear more about Live A Live but also Parasite Eve.  Parasite Eve deals with some weirdly sexual themes so I would like it if you could ask about why the choice in directing it towards that, particularly with regards to pregnancy and childbirth.  I doubt he's ever been asked questions like that with regards to the game, and it's something I'm really curious about.

In the novel mitochondria are inherited through the female line of descent, so there's always been that over-arching layer of motherhood present in the work.

Yeah, but it doesn't really explain why that's an overarching theme.  Stuff like that is kind of rare in Japanese society or any society.  Seriously, aside from expecting mothers, how often does society actually talk about motherhood (aside from maybe the occasion where bible thumpers want to shame supporters of contraception/abortion)?
Title: Re: Szczepaniak's Japanese gaming book
Post by: RetroProf on August 29, 2013, 04:32:05 pm
I want to ask him if he read the book, and how he managed to push through all of it.

I think the PE book to game adaptation that took place is a master class example in how to turn something slow, turgid and excruciatingly boring, into something expertly paced and wildly thrilling.

Seriously, how do you get a game so good, out of a book so mind bogglingly awful?
Title: Re: Szczepaniak's Japanese gaming book
Post by: Next Gen Cowboy on August 29, 2013, 04:44:35 pm
I really couldn't say how it was accomplished, but I'm itching to find out.

I really do adore the game for a number of reasons. The subtext of motherhood really does run through the entirety of it, which is something I didn't think about when I originally played it. Having a female lead at that time in an Eastern RPG is also something outside of the norm, and something else I'd be very interested in learning more about; how was it handled? Was there resistance to the idea either because of marketing or the concept of gender roles?

As for my admiration of the original PE, all I have to say is that it's the first game game I bought when they started releasing PS1 Cassics, just so I didn't have to scuff up my hard copy anymore.

Have either of you seen the movie? I haven't, but I'm curious how much/if any, of that adaptation was implemented.

Mr. Keiji Inafune & his company has made a Kickstarter about their new game called Mighty No. 9. Their goal is to reach $900,000 in 30 days(!?), & as of this time its about $450,000! If anyone is interested to backup this project more, please do!  :-[

Personally, I think the $99 and $120 brackets are the best donation to reward ratio. The last two are funny though, $9999 for all the benefits and a dollar more for dinner with Inafune. If I could give that kind of cash I would show up with a trunk full of Mega Man memorabilia for him to sign (yeah I would be THAT guy  >:D).

I gave a quick look to the character design and also the story. It looks a little similar to you-know-what.
I was wondering, do they risk issue copyright-wise or if it different enough?

Most sequels are to the first game but play a bit like it. You are right in that nothing plays exactly like RCR except downtown special which is them putting on a play.
There are sequels that play the same but with no jrpg elements, squeals that play differently and have different jrpg elements and of course the sports games.
While yes there is no full on squeal to this entry to the series other than the down town special one there are many sequals that are at least close
Now after researching this product these people aren't as ignorant as the first people who tried to do this (They did their research, some have lived in japan or are in fact in japan now) and they went ahead and worked with million corp directly. As a Die hard Kunio fan (Almost bought the underwear) I give this project my blessing, the clearly want to bridge the universes rather than make them alternate and expand on the characters in a good way. Oh and that gameplay just looks boss.

When I heard they will be porting this to japan and making it a Kunio game... SOLD! These guys are mah boys.

Recently, a lot of updates came up!

*An interview with the music composer for the game, Manami Matsumae: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/mighty-no-9/posts/596783

She made the music for Mega Man 1 according to this wiki (http://capcom.wikia.com/wiki/Manami_Matsumae).

Among the Mighty Nos., No.3 has more in-depth step-by-step concept art for her. I guess, a female boss has more
touch-ups that males. And the backers are a bit nitpicky on her design, too.  >:(

*And here are some fan-art animation: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/mighty-no-9/posts/601267

A single player, open world, open play, fantasy RPG where player choices determine the direction, flow, and the outcome of the game.

Unwritten: Echoes of Twilight is a single player, open world, role playing adventure game that combines the visual appeal of modern graphics and animation technologies with the classic role-playing elements hardcore RPG gamers love. In modern games, immersion, interactivity, and customization are often watered down by major studios, resulting in diluted replay value and degradation of the “role play” nature of the games. As RPG gamers ourselves, Druid Gameworks understands all those fun nerdy things RPG gamers want to see, or do, and we plan to give it to them in spades.

(http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg21/Darkrder/Druid%20Gaming/Kickstarter/Overview_zps14d530d8.png)
In this precursor and introduction to the Unwritten series, players are introduced to the world of Arthanswold through the heartland isles of Aerendwel and Byre, where the diverse and often unforgiving landscapes range from perilous mountain passes to dark ominous marsh lands, and overgrown jungles. In a player driven adventure, you can explore the world in any direction you want your story to go! Unearth hidden locations, unique characters, and dynamic quests. Chronicle your adventure in your journal, taking real notes whenever something important crosses your path. Customize pets and companions, take ownership of shops, wield powerful ritual magicks, join factions to form friendships, and uncover the shards of an ancient mystery that echoes from the past.

(http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg21/Darkrder/Druid%20Gaming/Kickstarter/aabf392f-cdee-4318-a87b-31f5113fc46f_zps53b8e4eb.jpg)

So what is a player driven adventure?

Think of it as a “choose your own adventure” video game. Most RPGs out there today would be considered story driven, where a main quest line is presented as the overall premise for the game play. Even when it’s possible to delay the main quest, it’s not usually possible to avoid it and still progress within the game. In the Unwritten series, game play is player driven, meaning you create your own game experience as you play and develop your avatar’s story. As you explore our universe and make your choices you will lock and unlock different experience pathways with every play through.
(http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg21/Darkrder/Druid%20Gaming/Kickstarter/Storyline_zps16e8f39f.png)

Your consciousness stirs in an otherworldly place; all around you plays of light and shadow distort your surroundings in a shroud of mist. You can feel yourself lifting into the air, held aloft as if by magic, as a glowing form appears before you; so bright the only detail you can make out is the delicate outline of feathered wings. A distant voice echoes in your mind urging you to reach forward and it's only then that you notice the great husk of an ancient tree that seems to cradle you in the remnants of its tattered boughs. All along the carved wood, unfamiliar symbols ebb and glow. When you reach out and touch them awareness blooms inside you and you begin to piece together a plan for the future that awaits you. Again that haunting voice beckons you from within "You will be Unwritten," it says in hallowed reverence, "The fulcrum of our salvation or our destruction, we do not know, but pray you are not led asunder. Go forth into the world and write your destiny."
(http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg21/Darkrder/Druid%20Gaming/Kickstarter/ae221629-ef89-4d0a-bce5-0b0fc117390b_zps0dedcb61.jpg)
You awaken as if from a dream, the same dream you've had over and over again across the years of your life. Returning to the present the dreams fade away like the last shades of night withering before a rising sun. Today is a special day, your clan is preparing to celebrate your coming of age; a time of great change and a chance to make your way in the world.

Choose from one of six playable character races to design and customize to suit your vision for your avatar.

I hate bumping this myself, buuut...

Aside from voting for Call's future design (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/mighty-no-9/posts/611851)

New stretch goal have been revealed:

$3,700,000 SINGLE PLAYER CALL STAGE & BOSS FIGHT!

Yes! We heard the feedback from our community, and at this level, we would be thrilled to fulfill this popular wish -- to add an all-new single-player level, including a boss fight, where you can play as Mighty No. 9’s heroine, Call! We agree it would be a fun addition and a great way to mix up the action, so fingers crossed we can make it this far!

It has roughly $400K (including pledges on PayPal) to go before the Kickstarter ends!  :woot!:

EDIT: Sooo the Kickstarter related threads have been merged.  :o

I have seen a demo of a game on stream (at Twitch) called Choice Chamber.
Basically, the player go through rooms and the game gives a poll.
The watchers on the stream votes and the game is changed based on the voter choices.
So basically the players votes to help (or troll!  ;D) the player, giving him weapons, changing the rooms and the monsters in it,
giving him levels skip and extra lives (or not) and so on.
Since I think the concept is interesting, I decided to talk about it here.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1451486150/choice-chamber?ref=live
If you're interested in backing the game, don't wait too much because the funding period ends in a few days.

At this point, it seems likely it will be founded.
I like the character design. ^^ It also reminds me of Bloody Roar. Must be the bunny. X D

*****UPDATE*****

Ok, strictly speaking, it's not a video game  (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/18592227/touhou-project-ft-gs-system?ref=category)but I believe this deserve to be mentioned.
In any case, I did not expect to see THAT when I went on the website.

Armello was funded and reached all of its stretch goals.

Some ex Stalker and Metro 2033 devs are apparently working on a spiritual sequel to the Stalker games. They say they've funded a majority of development themselves, but that they are also open to more donations via kickstarter if there is interest. The 26th is supposed to be an "official" announcement of the title. There seems to be some drama from GSC and Vostok Games crying that West Games are crooks, and some fans are put off that most of the kickstarter video is concept art, previous Stalker game footage, and slightly misleading.

Title: Re: The Kickstarter Thread
Post by: Celice on June 25, 2014, 01:16:16 pm
Like I said, I've been following the finger pointing, and as of last night there were no legitimate claims about it being a fake. The Vostok Games thread (on their Survarium forums) where a developer publicly stated they were seeking legal advice has since been deleted as well.

After reading those links, they didn't add anything besides fanning the misinformation and finger pointing. It really sucks as it will make for good click-bait, and if Areal turns out to be a legit project (after browsing lots of SoC early asset wikis, it's pretty obvious lots of hands went in that pie), this could really harm their PR image.

This project, like I said, wasn't intended to be shown until the 26th, but fans had such nice reception to the initial mention of it that it seems West Games decided to go ahead and mention it more publicly before getting their whole show on. At least, that's West Games's slant on things  :police:

EDIT:

So it turns out that Vostok Games have since deleted the thread where a moderator made the claim of fraud, and now distance themselves from that comment. They have also verified that some of the West Games team are indeed previous members of GSC. One person's quick and probably emotional response has lighted a figure that various game sites have taken for click-bait.

Now the project might be in dire straights because of misinformation and sensationalism. This is really sad... and another Stalker fan game called THE SEED is apparently mining through the comments of the kickstarter, bad mouthing the project and trying to goad backers to their game over West Games's project. This has turned out to be a very ugly affair. Hopefully GSC and Vostok Games will own up to the embers they've sparked. I don't know if the hive mind can ever let go of finger pointing and witchhunts, though. Some updates from earlier today:

Quote
Hi guys, I'm re-posting the update here in the comments section.

" We have contacted Vostok Games about their supposed claim that we are fraudulent. They say that they have no relation to that claim and have since deleted the forum topic (https://forum.survarium.com/en/viewtopic.php…) wherein a moderator accused us of being fake. The Kickstarter comments section has been completely hijacked by a couple of people, and even if we comment there, our posts will be ignored and buried. Misery LTD in particular is developing another post apocalyptic video game and is stirring controversy to attract people to his Kickstarter project. I hope that you, our supporters, can see through this deliberate negativity and help us make an awesome game with Areal. Update 2 is coming later today, and will clarify things even further.

Saw this one posted over on Siliconera.  I really like the story idea, and it looks like they've got a good head-start.

That one sounds interesting!
I wish the art was a little less dolly-childish, but the rest sounds very good.
26 days remaining. Come one, people! Order a T-shirt, already! ;D

How unfortunate that it shares its name with a particularly abysmal indie "horror" "game" for the Wii U.

Title: Blissbox 4play kickstarter for new controller cables
Post by: Panzer88 on May 04, 2016, 03:04:01 pm
The Blissbox 4Play is a device that allows you to connect old video game controllers to modern devices via USB. It can accept 4 controllers at once and does so using patch cables that adapt your existing controller to the 4Play.

It doesn't require you to install any drivers on your machine, works with rumble, Dreamcast VMU, microphone input, you name it. It's both the best and most cost effective device I've found for these tasks.

Recently they put up a kickstarter to produce a new set of cables that includes more obscure connections than their original set.

I'd encourage anyone looking for a great emulator controller solution to research it themselves and back their kickstarter if it's something that you're interested in

A canceled Dune GBA game is seeking to get a release.  Or at least, I'm told that it's Dune.  It's under a diffrent name now, in any rate.  This is by the person behind the Quest Arrest game boy homebrew.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/elland/elland-the-crystal-warsan-unreleased-gba-game

It has a couple hundred left until funding, and the lowest pledge gets you the ROM file.
