Tsurezurescans has released a translation patch for the prologue/trial of Tone Work’s first visual novel title Hatsukoi 1/1.
Translation group Tsurezurescans has picked up the translation for Tone Work’s moege visual novel Hatsukoi 1/1. Their first patch release translates the game’s prologue/trial version. One interesting aspect of the game is that a large component of the game involves sending a receiving text messages through your phone in-game, which was a prominent feature in the acclaimed visual novel Steins;Gate. The patch not only contains translations for the dialogue and UI interface but for the phone interface and text messages as well.
The group plans to continue and translate the full game, although they are undecided on whether or not they will release an updated patch every time they finish one of the heroine’s routes.
For your reading pleasure, below you will find the game’s character info, OP, synopsis, sample CGs, and where to obtain the game and patch.
