B-E-A-UTIFUL

Reviewed By: ParkerMcFly on 03 May 2022

Fantastic hack that really brought out what I remember the game being when I was younger, but now translated into a language my adult mind can better understand.

I loved how the characters felt so much more alive, and their personalities could really be understood this time around.

Two minor pieces of feedback that do not ruin this wonderful hack, but do detract from it slightly:

1) The language used across some of the interactions with characters. The use of some swear words makes me second guess in allowing my sons to try this hack out to re-experience what I did as a child. I might stick to the old translation for their first game through.

2) At one point early in the game (can’t remember where exactly; I should have written it down) someone uses the word “desert” rather than “dessert.” It threw me off when I saw it. Minor spelling mistake.

One suggested improvement for the future is to add more detail to items’ descriptions.

Thank you for this wonderful piece of art! I would love to see if we could continue to modify the game and add additional events or even more endgame to this. Would be quite a task, but I’d love to see something like Breath of Fire +, ya know?
