Very cool Rev, thanks!

I knew the animals in this game were chatty, but wow. :o

Thank you for translating that video Revereche.
I'm wondering if you could possibly translate or give a summary of the ending of this game, seen here:

If you don't have time that's understandable, thank you anyway for translating a part of the game.

Sure thing! :) I'm working on Christmas gifts this month, so I'll be a little slow, but I'll be sure to get it done.

Yeah, it stinks that the videos were taken down. :( I had someone email me recently asking for more information on the game, which is hard to come by. I hope to add some content to this thread in my spare time soon.

Huh. I played EVO a while back, but was rather disappointed by it, mainly because of the level grinding and barebones plot. (Also the railroading. Screw mammals, I wanna be a bird! Let me keep evolving!) Weird to know that its predecessor was this awesome. Why did they make such a poor port to the SNES?

Anyway, I was wondering...would it be possible to remake this game in something like Game Maker/RPG Maker? It doesn't seem terribly complex -- probably the most complex thing is the evolution gimmick. If it were possible for the graphics to be extracted from the game file, I think it could be a real possibility. I know that similar projects have been done before.

I can't imagine it would be too much trouble, no. Just monotonous.

Hm. Do you think it would be easier or harder to do a straight fan translation? (Though I suppose there could still the problem of accessibility -- I imagine it would be easier to download an RPG Maker executable than emulate an ancient Japanese computer. I could be wrong, though.)

Who said anything about emulation? You'd make a patch.

A patch for the translation, yes, but a game that old needs an emulator or a complete conversion to run on a modern computer, period. Or do you know something I don't?
