Segagaga translation in the works

Post by Juan » Mon Aug 28, 2006 12:57 pm

Shih Tzu @ Romhacking.net wrote:I saw this over at GameSetWatch: Apparently, a guy (who also runs a game-industry translation outfit) is working on producing a fan translation of Segagaga, that wacky Dreamcast game-industry sim where you take the reins of the ailing Sega corporation and band together with famous company mascots to demolish all rivals and put the house that Sonic built back on top. Just like real life! Oh, wait. Anyway, it looks like possibly the nerdiest game ever and must have been lots of fun to make.

As for the translation, while it looks like there are still lots of hacking issues to be resolved, the writing in the first preliminary screens is looking quite good. Let?s just hope the translators are savvy enough to catch the many, many Sega references in the game (the fact that the producer doesn?t even know who ?Alisa? is worries me somewhat, but he also mentions that he?s seeking a lot of help from more versed fans, so that?s promising).

Sweet. That guy looks a bit like a shaven hitler had his father been Leno.

This is great. Hopefully they'll finish it. It's great with a guide, but would be so much better if you could figure things out on your own.

I didn't know George Rosen was Jew and I think Nakayama would be budhist.

It's David Rosen, and his last name indicates that he has German ancestors ('Rosen' = 'Roses' in English).

However, he as well could be atheist. ;)

This may be a stupid question, but would the game be released for DC (I'm assuming it'd be an ISO of some nature) or would it be for the PC only?

I wonder if they will do any other translations in the future, does anyone have a link with information about the original copy of this game?

For those who may have forgotten...there appears to be updates to this project posted on the 11th and some videos that show the progress so far. They say they should have a patch before the Summer - pretty awesome news!!

Holy!!! I would love it if they finished this. I used to be really deep into fan translations.
