This isa fun little role-playing game. It is a side-story (hence the word ‘Gaiden’) based on the very popular Phantasy Star series (The ass-kicken-est RPG series ever, I might add =]). If Phantasy Star is as Nostalgic for you as it is for me, I suggest you grab the game right now. It plays so remarkably similar to the actual PS games it is uncanny.
PSTARA.IPS uses the English font that was already present in the game, and PSTARB.IPS uses a new, wider font. All of the above pictures use PSTARB.IPS, but if demand warrants I can maybe whip up some comparison screens.
There’s a major plot twist in the game that was rewritten by Magic Translations (well not rewritten, but changed around a little) because, uhh, well I don’t know why exactly. Rebecca Capowski has retranslated the scene and posted it in a text file on her website, located here: http://home.att.net/~RCgamusic/trans.htm Once I get through the game I’ll be able to figure out what exactly was changed, but for now you’ll have to take her word for it I guess. Naturally, don’t go looking for the retranslated scene thing unless you’ve already played through it or you want to be majorly spoiled. Kay?
This project was originally released by Magic-Destiny which has since merged with Stealth Translations to form Dynamic Designs. It is now offered and maintained by Dynamic Designs.
