A dedicated user from the ROMhacking.net forum has founded a new translation project to bring the classic PC-98 science-fiction eroge, Possessioner, to the English-speaking world.
Possessioner was originally released at the beginning of 1994 for PC-98 systems by Japanese developer Queen Soft. The title meshes traditional visual novel elements with adventure game gameplay, which includes sparse turn-based battles against challenging foes, the titular Possessioners. All combat against the Possessioners would end in brief interactive yuri sex scenes.
The short story synopsis of the game provided video game cataloging website MobyGames:
The year is 2035. A series of mysterious incidents began to occur in Tokyo. Young women disappeared under strange circumstances, and returned brainwashed, commanding armies of bionic monsters and assaulting human settlements. Such women were called "Possessioners". A special all-female squad was formed to face them in combat and bring them back to humanity.
A few sample screenshots of some the English text translation being implemented into the game, along with examples of the sexual content:
Hollowaytape, the leader of the project, is currently looking for dedicated translators for his ambitious project, as he himself is just a hacker. Despite that shortcoming, he has already managed to make significant progress on the title's text system, reverse engineering one of the image formats used by the game, as well as implementing ASCII for nametag displays during the dialogue.
The hacker's progress on the title can be tracked via regular updates on the ROMhacking.net forum in his own personal thread. With a bit of luck and proper exposure, we hope his endeavors will be rewarded with a talented translator joining his team and eventually delivering the finished translation of this classic eroge.
