This looks amazing!
Thank you Maeson, and I'll take this opportunity to let you know that I've been following your FF project. You're doing some great stuff with it, so keep at it!
I hope you're wrong and the game is not really cursed, because the work being made here looks too good!
It is possible to complete a Cursed title, though it will surely Curse those who bring it into the light. Just look at Romancing SaGa 3, for example. As soon as Disnesquick and I started to make progress with it, my lady gave me the boot and I was soon living in a tent, while he got the Black Death from a friendly alley cat.
Well, you're missing out. It's a great game.
I'll definitely play it, it's just hard to find "free time" these days.
Anyway, you won't be losing anything by not mimicing the crappy localizations of those days, when many of these people didn't seem to take their jobs very seriously despite the fact that they were working on some of the most awesome games of all time.
No kidding! I fired up the original Japanese game just to check it out, wandered into a shop, and observed some signage behind the clerk. Then I went to see how these graphics were localized in the North American release, and guess how they handled it? They simply removed the Japanese text! I'll post screenshots when I get home.
So yeah, I guess Goemon was a fictional character who likely birthed many folk tales but was connected to real people and events from Japan's history about 4 or 500 years ago.
It's hard to say now that so much time has elapsed. An inconceivable amount of the past is simply lost to history, which is very tough for me to think about, actually.
Nice, so that means no one was boiled alive with his baby children
Possibly, but those accounts conflict with one another. Some state that he kept his son held high, and that the son survived and was pardoned, while others indicate that he realized this wouldn't work, and plunged his son to the bottom of the cauldron in order to end his suffering as quickly as possible.
This looks like it'll be great! I can't wait to play this. Legend of the Mystical Ninja was one of my first SNES games, and I loved how wonderfully weird it was, and being a fun platformer as well. And since you seem to be a big fan, I know you'll do it justice. Good luck to you guys!
Thank you for checking it out, DDS. Get this, you inadvertently helped move the project along at a faster pace, since I stopped work on my RS1 translation when you announced yours.
The passion and dedication that you have for the game is quite familiar, and I admire your sense of obligation too. Seeing you return to finish something you started long ago is very cool and I hope we see more of this!
I also wonder if sharing a Curse might weaken its individual effects.
Those are some very nice graphics, kudos I know I'll really enjoy this translation when it's done.
Thank you! I've obsessed on them enough to share, but they will still see some improvement.
