For those of you who don't know about this game, it's a pretty rare game based off the Slot Brothers from EarthBound. Shigesato Itoi teamed up with APE Inc. to produce it. It involved dice and cards, and I've read someplace that it's very fun and fast-paced.
The game itself contains a deck of 72 cards total, 4 of which I think are reference cards, 3 regular sized dice, 1 large die with sombreros on two sides, and a two-sided instruction page.
I got a set off YAJ about a year ago. Flipping through the deck and the manual, I had a great urge to learn to play the game. Ever since, I've wanted to get this translated and have it written as a computer game that people could play together online. At one point, I finally scanned, cropped, spliced, edited, and compiled everything together from it, packed it into a neat ZIP file, and sent it off to Mato because he had expressed his desire to translate the game and have it written into an online computer game as well. However, as you probably know, the tomato man is a busy tomato man, and I thought maybe someone else could help out here.
So here's the purpose of this thread: Is anyone here fluent in Japanese and willing to translate this game? There are only two pages of instructions, and the box would be cool to have translated just for fun.
LucasTizma has already expressed desire to program the game if I were to get it translated, but he's also a busy guy, so if he is unable to, maybe if there are other good programmers here, they could volunteer to pitch in. And I'd be doing any graphical work for the game, the interface, editing all these images, etc. I'd really like to see this project get somewhere.
So here's my scan of the box, samples of some cards, the dice unfolded, and the instruction pages.
So who's genuinely interested and dedicated?
