    Touhou-A-Live

    Post by Amord on Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:47 pm

    Before we get to the meat of this topic I've started, there's a bit of information I want to share about an SNES game that was never released here; It's called "Live-a-Live". That's not a typo.

    It was a Japanese only game, an experiment by Square. You see, they didn't have one major story that the game focused on, instead it had several short chapters, focusing on one to three main characters at any given time.

    After playing through the available chapters, you unlocked another, which plays the same, and beating that paves the way for the final Chapter, where you can choose to play the Villain, or any of the main characters from before. When in the final chapter, you can recruit other main characters, and then face the big bad.

    It was a success, at least, in my opinion. It was an awesome idea, but the only way to play it nowadays is via Emulator, unless you own a Japanese SNES and original Live-a-Live cartridge, and know how to read Japanese.

    Now why do I tell you this? Because I have two videos to show you, first. The original game and it's best chapter [in my opinion]:

    It also chooses the best character as the pupil, you don't need to watch the entire chapter if you don't want. But now then...

    We come to this:

    Touhou-A-Live

    Isn't that awesome?

    Oh right, I have played the game before, atleast a copy of it. It was fun until I lost the game files.

    Yeah, I was thinking of downloading the chapters and playing through it. I love Live-a-Live, and I think it's awesome that a Touhou crossover got made.

    And all things considered, this entire thing was constructed on the PC Version of RPG Maker. I've seen a lot of turn-based RPGs on there, but nothing mimicing Live-A-Live so well.

    Ah, I see.

    Things are different on my end, I have basically nothing to do and I'm struggling to find games to play.

    Even though I have Skyrim, Fate/Extra, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations. I guess I'm trying to keep things really varied so I don't get bored.

    Ah, I wish you luck. Creating a Fortress is very time-consuming.

    And the amount of Stone involved... Still, the end result is satisfactory, and there's not much safer on Minecraft. Aside from maybe like, a Floating Island where it's entrance is surrounded by a Lava Moat.

    Oh yeah, I saw that Touhou thing before. I personally like Ran's the best. Y'know. Since prequels are awesome.

    Oh, now you wanna hear about something really awesome?

    The excellent translation that you can get for Live-a-Live nowadays is from Aeon Genesis, also known as Gideon Zhi.

    He was on the ZSNES forums at one point, and he was looking for RPGs that weren't translated, he didn't know of Live-a-Live at that time.

    Well, my Brother had found it and he was trying to play it, but couldn't get very far, so he mentioned it to GideonZ. Much time invested later, and now Live-a-Live is available to play in the US. I love this game, and I'm glad that my Brother got it translated, even if he didn't do it himself. xD
