Translation of the first Starry Sky game released

A fan translation group by the name of OGE has released a complete translation patch for Honeybee’s otome title, Starry Sky ~in Spring~. This is the first of four titles in the popular Starry Sky series, with three sequels named after Summer, Fall, and Winter. The translation patch is fairly large at nearly 450 megabytes and aside from some minor issues completely translates the title.

Starry Sky ~in Spring~ is an all ages otome game that was released during the first week of Spring in Japan last year. This is the first of four titles in the series, with one game released at the beginning of each corresponding seasing during 2009. Besides the main titles, a fan disc of the Spring story is scheduled to be released this month in Japan. There is also a popular series of drama CDs, with a date CD released for every character in the series that is a romantic interest, and full length drama CDs are also being released for each season. In addition, an anime based on the series is currently planned by Frontier Works.

In Starry Sky ~in Spring~ you play as a nameable female protagonist, and there are three main guys who act as the romantic interests and each have a story route. Each of these guys, as well as the 9 other guys that serve as a love interest from the other titles in the Starry Sky series, are based on the 12 symbols of the zodiac. Starry Sky ~in Spring~ features Tomoe Yoh, who is based on Capricorn, Nanami Kanata, who is based on Pisces, and Tohzuki Suzuya, who is based on Cancer. The protagonist is the first girl to join Seigatsu Academy, a school that until recently was an all boys school. Starry Sky ~in Spring~ follows the events shortly after her transferring into this school, while later titles look at the remainder of her first year at Seigatsu Academy.

Despite the large size of the translation patch, it is not a stand-alone release. While it appears that the translation group does not wish to draw attention to themselves and does not have a website, the included read me does include some information about the group, including staff names and the group name. The readme also lists some minor gameplay issues. The first is that the configuration screen is in Japanese because of a problem editing multiple page images, however the patch includes a jpg image that shows the configuration menu in English. One other minor issue is that there is one scene that the text may seem somewhat squished or awkward, as for this scene the game required that the text count of their English patch to exactly match the text count of the original Japanese text. Finally, while the protagonist is nameable, the translation group warns that they have only tested the game with the default name, Yahisa Tsukiko, and they make no promises if you choose a different name.

    i wish they mentioned what tools or code they used, i have done a fair bit of modding in the past and i would love the chance to extract and rebuild all the other games in the series.

    i only need someone to do the translated text. lol

    I hope they make one for Starry Sky — After Spring!
    I’m looking forward to that game, but I have no idea how to read Japanese or anything.
    I just finished playing In Spring, and the patch was quite awesome, although it was quite hard to get everything together and all that. Had fun though. Really hope they’ll consider doing an Eng. Patch for After Spring. :)

    i hope they release all the games in the series!, i loved starry sky in spring im a pieces, but suzuya was my favorite ^_^ XD… oh and while im posting this, for people who dont know how to install it… what you need to do is, install the game in JAPANESE and run the installer for the english patch and install it to the japanese game, and i dont remeber if you need to set the locale to japanese but i already had to for another game XD(if anyone sees someone translate ANY of the kiniro no corda A.K.A. La corda d’oro PLEASE TELL ME!) but evem if they tested it only with the defalt name, there were few mistakes with if you entered a name, but im glad it worked with a diferent name!~(ya sorry i HAD to use my name and go after suzuya >:) lol) sorry i started rambling! BUT IT WAS AWESOME!!!

    The chances of making a sale will increase with the quality of the description. The Fortune Hunters, led by Nathan Zachary must
    stop a fascist bent on world domination from testing his weather control machine
    on Chicago. If so, then you should ensure the settings are
    changed prior to them playing. The adventure itself is almost downright boring and the fiction presented doesn’t
    add anything worthwhile to the Indy universe. You are going to discover hidden Mickeys woven into
    the carpeting in the resort hotels, raked into
    the sand in the beaches overnight, concealed
    in the constellations in the ceiling of Mission Room, in the placement
    of plates on a table, and just about anyplace else three circular
    objects can be attached or created.
