The Silver Case demo is on Steam. For real.

As some of you may recall, around eight months ago, I was bandying about the notion of a fan translation for this little crazy game.

 

In a move that is as big a case as can possibly be made for the existence of a higher power, Playism and Active Games Media decided to localize it.

And everyone at iwakura.p breathed a massive sigh of relief.

Make no mistake, people: this would have been the project from hell. The Silver Case is a multimedia MONSTER! Live action footage, anime, a multitude of art styles, and a script so massive that Robert Jordan would go ‘okay, get that man an editor’.

It’s also a PS1 game that is seventeen years old.

And it’s on Steam. Right now. You can actually PLAY A TRANSLATED VERSION OF THE SILVER CASE, LEGITIMATELY, ON PC.

In short, it is a MIRACLE that this is happening.

Can’t stress that enough. Small bonus: this is the first chapter of the ‘Kill The Past’ trilogy that leads into Flower, Sun, and Rain, and ends with Killer7. This is Suda51 at his prime, in full-tilt crazy mode. And a fantastic translation team took it on, so this is really the perfect storm.

In the demo, of the first chapter titled ‘Decoyman’, two detectives are hot on the trail of a legendary killer named Kamui Uehara… and an elite special forces team realizes they may be in way over their heads.

So uh, yeah.
