Ninja Carnage (release)
« on: 10:17, 23 December 20 »
The game is now finished and available  :P


http://games.resistance.no/ninjac/



The game is a 2 disk side adventure game / semi-textual / Point & click / Die & retry.


Your mission, to help a Ninja kill the yakuza boss. But there are two problems. First, the Ninja is very “bad ass”. He has a very special sense of humour and he thinks you are a total loser. He is very irreverent.


The second problem is that the final boss is hidden very deep in a temple and your trip will lead you through supernatural situations.


The gameplay is die and retry, meaning that each error will lead the Ninja to death.


There are 29 levels in the game. The texts are more than 10 000 words and there are 128 different deaths for the Ninja.
He got reasons to be angry.


The game is translated into 6 languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Greek).


The story is based on japanese culture, historical facts and ghost stories. The yokai are supernatural creatures in the japanese folklore. You’ll face many challenges, but I’m sure you’ll both be victorious…or not.

By the way, many thanks to this forum where quite all the translators come from ( manossg, Mr. DVG, RobCfg, Ythcal, MiguelSky ... and some others I may forget )

That allow the CPC to have a great text adventure game in 6 langages : English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Greek.

Hope you'll have fun and some good laughs :)

Thank you for this release and for letting me participate in this beautiful project! :-*   

It was a struggle for the graphic designer to recreate all the capital letters and accents of the Italian language too, but given the final result it was really worth it! ;)

For some unknown reason (maybe because of zip inside zip), chrome does not download this. I had to use "save as" and manually override the discard warning. Thanks again.

It works. You have to "save as" (right mouse click) and depending on the browser you use, accept the download as safe

I played it for some time yesterday at the office. I got really frustrated at some point and rage-quit, so I guess this shows it's a good game :D

It is possible to finish the game, I made it. But as a translator I had some more clues what should happen next...
Especially the corridor with crosswind is a little frustrating...

I played this game for a while. The graphics are excellent and I like the style of gameplay. Thankfully it doesn't send you right back to the beginning if you make a mistake. However, was there really any need to include so much offensive language and be so condescending to the player?

I was asked a few months ago if I could help proofread the English translation of the game, but I declined (mainly because of the large amount of text in the game - I didn't know anything about its content at the time). After playing it, I'm glad I declined.

Well, it this game in English only? I thought it has more languages. When I start it, it shows a british flag and continues in English. How can I activate other languages?

They have different DSKs per language. The ZIP on the website contains all languages. http://games.resistance.no/ninjac/

Very good game, I enjoyed both the puzzles/action scene (I liked how the mechanics got tweaked now and then) and the extremely vulgar text (played it in Italian, so congratulations to the translator too).
One thing I did not enjoy: I wanted to play this on a ZX speccy emu, but the only shop I found that sold it was cartridge only. There was no itch.io, no anything were to buy a simple .tap/.dsk. Hence I wanted to throw a few € at someone but could not and ended up playing this (lovely) CPC version.
Again congratulation, really skillful way to tell a story.
