First post of the year.

This poll is just to get a rough idea on how to handle references to foodstuffs in the game. If most people who play this game know a lot about Japanese cuisine, it’ll save me the trouble of trying to explain it (whether it be a subscript annotation or a TL note). Kosame’s route has a number of sexual references relating to food, and we’re deciding on how to successfully reproduce them for an English audience without detracting from the original intention of the scene — the last thing we want is for the reader to have to Google some obscure Japanese food, because that would obviously ruin the overall experience.

    If those references come with puns, ugh, it would be a real pain to look up for the meanings and understand them. So yeah, I would rather have them explained for me (lazy I know I am).

    Same for me. Please explain it. :)

    Localizing/translating the food terms would probably be a good idea. Having to Google for ’em isn’t exactly a major problem, but it would be a hassle.

    I remember 4Kids trying to substitute onigiris with donuts/sandwiches/bread when they were handling the localization of Pokemon in the late 90s. I think they eventually just gave up and called them rice balls.

    when will you release the next patch? what route will it included?

    • Insemination says:

      01/04/12. Everything.

      • Kago says:

        April 1st… Is there any deeper meaning in the release date or it is just coincident?

      • royne says:

        eeeh… can you please at least make komomo’s route patch before the ‘final’ one? because she is my favourite girl/route and I want to play it badly now since it already edited :(

        • Insemination says:

          By that logic, I’d have to make a patch for anyone who asks for one for their “favourite girl”.

            1828#&tIa17;s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

    Earlier release date will probably be good for everyone, but for me I think not. Some huge self-restraint I’m gonna have to put up to keep me from playing eroge, since I will have been deep in studying for uni exam by the end of March. *sigh*

    …rants rants rants…

    Anyway, gratz on your great progress. I have been following (stalking?) the project page for a while, and I can definitely tell the translating speed being picked up during these past weeks. Hope you keep up the good work!

    lil’ question!

    Does the patch will work on Vista or will we have to wait a day or two for a fix? I remember what happened with Isuzu patch…
