Thought a little thread about fan translations would be a good way to get recommendations etc. I did a search in the forums and didn’t see a thread like this, apologies if this is a dupe.
I’m not deep into the scene, I’m just on the look out for ways to play Japanese only games that have a bunch of text in them since 私のにほんごがじょうずじゃありません.
This was inspired by seeing the Racing Lagoon translation project this morning.
I’ve played a few hours of Racing Lagoon and really enjoyed it so very happy to see this project.
Another one I’m looking forward to is Iru, a PS1 horror game with Lovecraft influences.
SnowyAria also did a translation for 7 Mansions on the Dreamcast, a split screen coop survival horror. Unfortunately that refuses to work over VGA even with the VGA trick and editing the ROM. I don’t have the setup for a non-VGA Dreamcast at the moment so I might have to emulate on PC despite me not enjoying playing games on my PC at all.
I’m also looking forward to finally sitting down with a working version of Mizzurna Falls. Been wanting to play that for ages and dabbled with the broken patch a while ago.
Anyone got any good recommendations for translations they’ve enjoyed?
