Update By: Polinym

Be careful what you wish for...

Shortly after the release of Stardom Warriors, Polinym's localization of LaSalle Ishii's Childs Quest (also known as ChaiKue), Polinym began work on a delocalization version simply "because he could". However, he quickly realized that such an obscure, ugly, and slightly pervy game was unfit for mere mortal English speakers. So, he channeled all the dark energy of "free time" to create a more menacing, enraging experience. He worked on his Kaizo Quest project among various other projects.

LaSalle Ishii's KAIZO Quest is the embodiment of Polinym's dual-faced nature towards a non-localized version of ChaiKue. Nearly all of the copyrighted content, such as LaSalle Ishii, Matsuo Ishii, and the Childs, has been restored. The game's text has been rewritten to be significantly more accurate to the original. Much of the censorship has been removed, although Polinym still has his limits...

At the same time, the cost of such a project is an increased difficulty. The game now takes more grinding to complete. Shop items are now drastically more expensive. Lies and tricks have been scattered among the helpful hints. All of the water in-game has been replaced by bloo, um, er, "Mementos Juice". Many helpful hints have flat-out been removed. The final boss's true form has been restored...

Polinym does not approve of this game. He suggests that only experienced ChaiKue players even consider attempting this. A quality, family-friendly way to play the game in English already exists in the form of Stardom Warriors ( http://www.romhacking.net/translations/5321/ )

This hack was designed to be hated. Polinym shall not be responsible for controllers thrown into TV/PC screens or discomfort caused by the game's dialogue.

Hi, Polinym, how you doing?
I rally like your work, especialy on this kind of obscure JRPG that come for the famicon.
It satiric and parodic nature are something i would really love to see more on western games, but well, at least we have this ;)
I love the localization work you made on Stardom Warrior, but to know the original game, thus this de-localization, is also really welcomed to us players that like to know about japanese weird things.

I would like to ask you something about the nature of this hack.
It is really a KAIZO version or is just the original difficulty of the japanese release restored?

The same question apply to the changes mentioned above, are they really changes or just restored from how they were originally?

I only ask this as i would love to experience the game as it was released originaly for the famicom.

Thanks for your time, and i hope you can keep working on translations and amazing hacks.

have a nice day!

Polinym

Hi there! I'm glad to hear you enjoy Stardom Warriors! :D

Well... I can also appreciate your desire to learn about the weirdness in this unbelievably obscure game, which is why it pains me to tell you that this is a true "Kaizo" hack. I restored most of the things I censored or changed from the original, but I also cranked up the difficult drastically. I also changed some other things that aren't even accurate ("Mementos Juice" oceans, final boss design, etc.). Overall, most of the biggest localization changes are undone, so they would be worth looking at. However, you'll probably have to do more grinding and be familiar with how the game works beforehand. If you'd really like to see what's in there, I can PM you a some cheat codes for FCEUX so you can toggle encounters, get the boat early, and have infinite stuff.

Thank you for supporting my localizations! :)

Thanks for answering, Polinym!
Haha, no worries, Stardom Warrior is really an amazing localization.
So when i complete it i will replay the KAIZO version and enjoy changing the dippers of the girls.
Damn, one can't just stop getting amaze with this kind of games.
I wonder if Idol's managers on Japan had to reach that level of responsability over the star they manage.

Anyway, since i love your trailer, i will try playing SW and LICKQ both at the same time. Checking the differences and the difficulty increased, and suffer it probably hahaha.

Will be waiting for your next localization!
Best of lucks!
