I'd probably be able to pitch in a little just because it's something that I'd love to see ripped. Although we could try Assembler Games, they're pretty big on preservation and have the numbers to easily pick it up.
Garage is compatible with mac and pc I think.
Nono Chu-teng was mac only
Garage was a pc game only.
New info form 4channers who translated some stuff
Hey everyone, I got intrigued so half-assedly translated the opening, not that it really helps understand the plot that much (it looks like either the wider plot is in the manual or it unfolds as the game goes on):
>This is “Garage”.
>Please sit down in there.
>Yes, there is good.
>At first you may feel a sense of vertigo, but please bear through it.
>Oh, your name was...
>Well then, Yan, are you ready?
>Are you uneasy about anything?
>It will be okay, please trust “Garage”.
>You will undoubtedly be able to attain the thing you desire.
And the letter on the desk at the beginning (I have no idea what adaptability means, it's also translated as "adjustment" and "conforming" but your guess is as good as mine):
To people who wake up in this room:
You were floating in some dirty water. By chance when I was trying to leave my house you arrived in the stream in front of my house, you know. Your adaptability was falling extremely quickly so I attempted to restore you, but you didn't regain consciousness. If you read this, then I hope you visit the machine called Hajime. It is the machine that lives immediately to the left of this house. I think it will teach you about the Adaptation Hall. If you go there then restoring adaptability is possible. If you are able to do this then please escape from this unseemly world. This world is not the right world. You should chase down your own shadow. Everything begins from there, doesn't it?
Sheng. [name, probably]
I forgot to write this, but at the winch which is on the left hand side when you go from the house, my fish bait is set up. It's not problem if you freely use it.
Garage – this strange equipment is said to work upon the test subject's subconscious and invents a strange, dark world. The place the protagonist is thrown into is a locked space in which every area is filled with seemingly ruined wooden buildings and rusty metal. And, as the protagonist's body is both a machine and a living thing and he does not breathe, he discovers that everything has completely changed. The protagonist wanders around a world that is like a complexly constructed maze. Search for the exit from this world.
Here's a description of the thing the player is looking for (I can't tell if it's an antagonist), it's the girl thing from the front of the box:
Shadow is the being with the most enigmas wrapped around it. It has a largely human, or at least a close to human appearance. However, Shadow, who looks over this world, is protected by an overbearing set of equipment. Where this is, however, seems to be fleeting. But, why is it called Shadow? What in the world is the meaning of this being? Why is Shadow protected through that kind of equipment? At the moment, these are still not things that are known at all.
