Osawari Tantei -- Petition for translation!
 
Okay, folks, I've just been in touch with the publisher of Osawari Tantei Ozawa Rina, a Japanese adventure game for the Nintendo DS that has charmed many of us with its lovely artwork and nice design. (If you don't know what all the excitement is about, check out the many screenshots through the link above. Be sure to check out the second page for more, including some unofficial translations.)

I requested information about the possibility of an English translation and international release of this game, and their reply was that they didn't think there'd be enough overseas interest. Hoping to convince them otherwise, I created an online petition to show them there are many of us who would love to buy this game if it were released in English.

Please, please sign this, not only because there are a lot of people who might enjoy this game, but to send a message to Japanese publishers that we want to see more of their games translated... especially adventure games!

Those of you who are active on other gaming boards, please consider inviting others to join you in signing this petition. I'm not going to advertise this on boards where I've never contributed before, as I don't want to be seen as a spammer, but if you're known somewhere and are willing to help out this humble but noble cause, please post a link back to this forum message. That will give those who are unfamiliar with the game a chance to check out screenshots and other game info before they read the petition itself.

A big thanks for reading this, and an even bigger thanks to those who sign the petition! After we get together a good number of signatures, I'll forward the petition to the publisher, together with a Japanese translation.

Good idea! Hope this works, not that I own a DS. I might get one in the future, but more translated games can only be good. BTW what the hell is this all about:

How bizarre... I just created the petition, so what's he going on about? And why wouldn't I sign my own petition, seeing as I'm the main petitioner? Oh well, that's the internet for you. I have the Power of Delete, though, so Mr. F.U. is gone for now.

jjacob 02-20-2006 10:17 PM

Indeed it is :P :crazy:

Starflux 02-21-2006 12:38 AM

I signed it! I'd like this game to be available here, so I'm all for it!

Hardly ripping through the forum member list at the moment. What's wrong with you lot?

You should post this at GB and JA+ too.

I signed it but my signature doesn't appear.

You need to confirm an email before it appears.

Karmillo 02-21-2006 03:39 AM

I just signed it, and ill be sure to pester anyone I can to sign it :D

That's odd, I didn't have to.

I know it's quite novel, but it's going to take more than ten hours for everyone who visits these forums to see this topic ;).

Anyway, signing.

Um... it was posted in the middle of the night in North America? :P

I winced when I saw the title of this thread, but this is a petition that seems like it could actually work. I'm happy to sign. :)

Kolzig 02-21-2006 08:09 AM

It would great if this game would get a translation.
I'd be first in line to buy it. :)

Marek, I switched to e-mail confirmation after the spamming which was mentioned above. After you click on the link in your e-mail, your name and comment will appear. Sorry about the inconvenience, but thank you for your support!

I usually wince when I see the word "petition" myself, but since the publishers expressly named a perceived lack of interest from the international market, I figured it couldn't hurt to show them there are hundreds of us (I hope) who would like to play this game and others like it. If necessary, I'll even offer to translate it myself at little cost, because I'd love to see more Japanese games making it overseas, especially adventure games.

Yes, I should. I'll be doing that soon. EDIT: Posted at JA+.

Cheers,

Many thanks to those who have already signed the petition. We're up to about 20 signatures now, which isn't bad considering this has been up less than a day. That's about 0.1% of AG.com's 17000 daily visitors. If we can get up to 1% we'll be in pretty good territory. Though the petition says I'm waiting for 500 signatures, I think anything up in the 200-250 range is enough to make a point.

Haven't signed the petition yet? What are you waiting for? :P

Where'd you get that number? (The 17000 daily visitors, I mean.) Just curious.

nikoniko 02-21-2006 07:00 PM

The advertising page. :D

fov 02-21-2006 07:32 PM

Lies, all lies. :D

I still wouldn't assume that 17,000 people have seen this thread... not yet, anyway. ;) As of right now it has 204 views, and some of us have viewed it more than once. So technically, you're going at better than 10% right now!

Junkface 02-21-2006 08:25 PM

Signed.
