Rejoice! The news from Nightcrawler's Translation Corporation
is in! The Glory of Heracles IV: Gift from the Gods
English translation has been released! This is a milestone in the fan translation community as it completes the last entry in the Glory of Heracles series. The entire series is now available in English for your enjoyment! Fans of Glory of Heracles III
will be happy to know that nansahi also did the translation for the fourth game too! So, you can expect established styles and conventions to carry over. It is a rare treat to be able to do this for multiple fan translated games in the same series.
The bar is set high these days and Nightcrawler made every effort to ensure the hacking work met every expectation, and hopefully even raised the bar higher yet in some areas. 'Making the impossible possible' was a mantra often used during several trials of the project. The over 200 possible submenus that needed translation and adjustments that you can access in-game will surely attest to that!
For those not familiar with the game, Glory of Heracles IV is a blend of Greek mythology, the story of Pandora's Box, and the quest for eternal life. Although Heracles is in the title of the game, he is not the principle character. The game is actually the story about some other characters, with Heracles as a secondary intertwined quest. Although it shares some Dragon Quest similarities, this is not a Dragon Quest clone. The gameplay and story are head and shoulders beyond what you'd find in a Dragon Quest game.
Some further details are available in the readme file for those of you interested in a second helping of project and game details. For the rest of you in a hurry to get things done, on to playing!RHDN Project PageRelevant Link
