Anyway, Xanadu II here looks pretty, and I'm always up for some PC Engine games, but how does it play? Anything like Ys?
It plays quite a lot like Ys, yes. It's the old "no attack button, just ram into enemies any way other than head on" system, It's also overhead, it's town/dungeon, you buy equipment etc. The unique feature is that you have no personal experience points, but rather "proficiency points" with weapons and armor. The more you attack enemies that take more than one hit to kill, the stronger your sword gets. The more you take damage, the stronger your armor gets. Your HP grows in a vaguely similar way.
It's loads of fun, with virtually none of the stresses that a lot of really old RPGs have. I'm actually itching to finish the first draft of the translation so I have an excuse to give it another play-through.

One thing you all might be able to help me with: I am not getting many submissions from female voice actors. I've got enough guys that I think I'll be able to pick out a pretty good team, but I haven't even gotten enough female submissions to cover all the parts. Know a girl who can act? Send them my way. Many of the parts are short and easy.

See previous post: I still need female voice actors. I've got a couple of friends on board, but the more the merrier.
