Messages - Azoth The Monk

Pages: [1]
Greetings, I go by the nickname Azoth and I am a hardcore old-school JRPG player. I am a big fan of the playstation era and I know that Japan had great turn based games in that time that were unfortunately never released in English.
I came across a blatant Final Fantasy VII clone named "Ancient Roman - Power of the Dark Side" (1998) from Japan for the PSX and it looks like something I would want to play through and enjoy. The turn based battle system looks fun, the story seems pretty epic, and it has cool pre-rendered backgrounds like the psx Final Fantasy games. Here is a video of someone going though the first 26 minutes with an on screen translation:

Maybe if we get a group going we can give it a shot... I don't know the language and have never done a rom hack before, but I can put text into a translator and smooth out the rough edges.

I am surprised that there hasn't been an effort on this game already.

Let me know if you're interested fellas.
