After gpawj posted about The Fortune Cookie, I decided to look into it myself. Don't know if anyone else has, but I stumbled across the complete Russian version, titled "На сопках Маньчжурии" (Na Sopkakh Man'chzhurii / On the Hills of Manchuria). Here is the link for downloads of both Russian and English versions. I haven't yet gotten the latter to work, but I'm sure someone else here can easily. "Rest in peace, a Soviet citizen. Unrest in the Far Eastern border pose no threat to the building of communism. After all, while you sleep, Comrade Stalin thinks. And he already had a plan, how do you knowthe intentions of our Japanese 'friends.' Sleep well ..." View AttachmentView AttachmentView Attachment
This is really fascinating stuff! I'm so glad the story behind this one is beginning to unfold - it's eluded me for over 10 years!
Hello guys! I got a game from my dad long time ago. Karate Pro. But when i put it in it's the Fortune Cookie! I installed it but this shit says there is no CD in the cd-drive. So i have the full game but I can't play with it. Any idea how much does this shit worth?
The developers who made that game, Jigoku no Renshuu Mondai, also made a text adventure called Recapture. It's something of a "lost" title because it was only developed for the FM-7, where most other games also made it to the PC88 and other platforms. I only know a little about it, but it's about a company who develops a male birth control drug, but it's stolen by a rival corporation so you need to break in and steal it. It's supposed to be really funny in the same way as their other games. Unfortunately I can't find a disk image, and what little I can dig up on Japanese sites indicate that it has problems running beyond a certain point in emulators. Physical copies of the game are very rare and expensive.
Interesting stuff. I get the feeling the Fortune Cookie was released under a number of different names. I still really ought to finish playing it. It's such a peculiar game. I'd be really interested in seeing all the differences between the English and Russian versions.
So a while ago, I was planning on writing an article on a German RPG Maker game called "Schuld," but I could only find the download link for the English translation. I'd really rather use screenshots from the original German version; that's kind of important to me. I tried to track down the German version, but I all I could find was a few dead links. It probably didn't help that I don't speak German. Does anyone on this forum happen to have a copy of the original German version (a long shot, I know), or is there anyone here who speaks German and might be able to track down a download link I missed? Thanks in advance.
