Edit 12/16/2013: Translation in progress. About 100 pages completed out of ~550 pages. There are also some problems with line breaks in the game engine, but nothing that can’t be fixed with a small program, I hope. No promises, but expect an update in two months’ time. Meanwhile, this blog won’t be updated until I finish (or quit).
Sadly, I’ve ran out of Saki/Teru material to translate except some small bits here and there. So this past month, I’ve been looking at an original doujin game created by the group Yuri Time. This visual novel features Teru as the protagonist. The game has its original CG set and character designs, which are quite impressive for a fan-made game. There are a total of 5 routes.
The OP can be found here.
Here are some screenshots:
Now for the different routes: Saki, Toki, Awai, Kuro, and Sumire.
Saki Route: the obvious reason why I played this game. This is one of the longer routes if you include the epilogue and goes quite a bit into Saki and Teru’s past and even pulls in that mysterious girl in the manga who also sports the Miyanaga hairstyle. Contains good, bad, and normal ends.
Toki Route: another very rich route and explains some back story for the Miyanagas, believe it or not, though I felt bad for Ryuuka the whole way. Contains good and bad ends.
Awai Route: this one is very light-hearted compared to some of the others. It also contains the most CGs. Only one good end.
Kuro Route: Kuro’s route kicks in later in the game, but it gives a very interesting interpretation on Kuro and Yuu. Contains good, bad, and true ends.
“Sumire” Route: this is the last unlockable route and contains the true ending of the game. It’s not really a Sumire route as it’s more of a murder mystery. If you stumble onto this route by accident, you’re in for quite a surprise.
If anyone’s interested in this game, I’ll give translating it a shot. It might take a while, but it doesn’t look too bad. A couple of hours of gameplay if you’re not getting stuck on the routes.
