Translations: Slayers Sees the Light of Day!
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:58:58 am »

Update By: Draken

After eight years (to the exact day!) of intense labors by many - some tragic and others triumphant - Matt's Messy Room and D-D are jointly announcing the penultimate closure of another success story. We are releasing Slayers English on its 8th anniversary - the final day of winter. Except for a few small details planned for our first update, Slayers is finished and 100% compatible with real hardware. Because older emulators do not appear to fully support this game, including the Japanese ROM, we are recommending BSNES as the emulator of choice.

The Slayers English translation project is the culmination of a joint effort between D-D and Matt's Messy Room.

How right you are. I couldn't imagine doing all this work on my own. I can handle assembly, tools and such. Story writing, graphics!? If it were up to me then a project would be stuck in limbo.

  Since getting with these guys, I've seen four projects hit the scene. I can tell you that there is about 3 more that can be ready with the next few months. I'm already
working on one of them today.

A lot of the dialog is absolutely hilarious.  It's one of those games like Mother 3 where you look forward to talking to the townspeople.  Awesome job  :thumbsup:

Congratulations & よくできました!

I just checked out the game and your translation in about 30 minutes of gameplay. So far so good, there's seems to be no problem.  ::)

Thank you to you guys and keep it up.

And BTW, now that this is done, I'm sure you guys are ready for another game to see the light of day in English, so what's next for us to expect from you?

  Thank you very much. To answer the question of what's next, that all depends.
As it stands now, it can be Chaos Seed which is in ok condition. A rough draft has been done on the text but the menu system is the sickest I've seen in a while. If this game is not next then it can be another game that's about done but it's not my place to mention that one. :)

Okay can't wait for that as well, I hope the other one is Burning Heroes.  :)

Its good to see such positive feedback on the project.
There is really no secret to how we do things: good teamwork,
a lot of hard work and love for games; it all really boils down to these factors
and we'll strive to maintain the same level of commitment and quality in all our releases.

Is money pretty hard to come by in this game?  It seems like the amounts of money you get are fixed by the story and there aren't many ways to make extra money.

Yeah, money is a rare commodity in this game, so its best that you plan your equipment purchases as much as you can and / or make the best use of the equipment you find in dungeons and such.
Visiting thief dens whenever you reach a new area and selling everything but what is absolutely necessary should loosen up your wallet's strings
some.

Uh, 1 question. Why does the entry for the game have 4 screen shots of the same thing? Also, congratulations on the release! Here's to many more quality translations from you guys! :beer:

Its a good suggestion, I'll bring it to the team's consideration.
I suppose it would streamline the reading experience considerably.

I'm thrilled to see this game finally released by someone who'll do it justice.  I've been hoping for it for years, now.  I'll plan some time in for a full play though later when the schedule is free.
