Emulation/Romhack/Homebrew showcase: Slayers

A new translation hit today, this one is a classic SNES game: Slayers!

From the project website:

Originally slated as an Famicom (NES) launch, Slayers’ developers recoded for the then cutting-edge Super Famicom (SNES). The resulting product may lack a few of the bells and whistles embedded in more recent RPGs, but the story rocks with such force, most players will soon be swept into this nutty universe called Slayers. Unless your heads are constructed of granite, once you become immersed in the story, few should notice or even care about the absence of modern fluff. Forget anime this and manga that. Slayers features an old-school RPG engine, populated with zany and occasionally overheated characters – created by its Japanese author. Slayers’ risqué and sometimes ribald content is usually foaming and bubbling just beneath the surface, even while its “heroes” are slashing and stomping bad guys into mush!

The richness of this game lies not only in its storyline, but a clever, convoluted plot that features a major twist. Drawing masterfully from the unpredictable wackiness and overdoses of humor that define the Slayers culture, this wild ride careens through the world unceasingly from start to finish. Therefore, Slayers should resonate with its most avid fans and traditional RPG-lovers alike. Game play will be intuitive for experienced RPGers. experience a small learning curve as they plunge into what will be a familiar ambience. A typical menu driven interface for battles and managing parties should not present anyone with challenges more difficult than text-messaging.
