Back On Track

August 27, 2009

Quick update to let everyone know that new translators have been found. Banzai!

Hitting the Wall

August 14, 2009

So you might have noticed the lack of updates…

First, the good news. The second script is finished. Now for the bad. Due to circumstances beyond his control, our translator has resigned. This means nothing gets done until a new translator can be found. In the meantime, I’ll be working on my game backlog.

If anyone reading this wants to help, please leave a comment.

Progress, Baby!

The script has been hacked and sent to the translator. Boo-yah! We’re finally making progress.

The demo, by the way, would be a standalone release based on the first Japanese demo.

Dawning Blue Translations is pleased to announce its first visual novel translations project, Purple Software’s Ashita no Kimi to Autame Ni (Till I Reach Your Tomorrow.) The game won several Game of the Year awards for its excellent artwork, and was runner-up in many other catagories such as scenario and music. I chose AsuKimi as my first translation project because it’s a personal favorite of mine, and I wanted to share it with everyone else.

AsuKimi tells the story of Yashiro Shuuji’s return to Mikaze island, where he spent his childhood. He’s reunited with his best friend from those days, but she doesn’t remember him. Actually, she doesn’t remember anything that happened more than a year ago, when she showed up out of the blue after being missing for seven years. It seems that people on the island who go into the woods get spirited away by the gods to another world, or so local legend says. Not that anybody believes that old superstition. And yet…
