Tokyo Dark: Remembrance by Cherrymochi is an expanded version of the point-and-click and visual novel game Tokyo Dark for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. You take on the role of Detective Ito, who makes frightening discoveries in the dark corners of Tokyo.
IMPORTANT: This is the first time that my translation of the game has been used in official form. However, the translation was revised by another team and the new scenes were not translated by me either.
Currently only the Nintendo switch version is available. As soon as the PlayStation 4 version is released, I will update this article. The PC version remains as it is and can only be played in German with the unofficial patch.
“Detective Ito’s partner is missing, but what starts as a straightforward case soon spirals into a twisted nightmare that causes Ito to confront her past and question her own sanity. Tokyo Dark places the narrative in your hands. Your decisions and actions change Detective Ito’s state of mind, opening doors to different possibilities as you attempt to find your partner and understand the dark and horrifying world around you.”

Ash of Gods: Redemption by AurumDust is a turn-based RPG that combines tactical combat, CCG elements, and a constantly evolving story in which no one is safe from death, including the main characters.
The story was written by Russian fantasy author Sergey Malitsky; the soundtrack was made by Adam Skorupa, Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz and Michal Cielecki, whose previous work includes The Witcher, Bulletstorm, Painkiller, EVE Online, Call of Juarez and Shadow Warrior. The game also contains visual novel elements and is, with about 300,000 words, the largest game I’ve translated so far.
The game is now available for PC. Console ports for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One will follow.
“Ash of Gods is the story of three separate protagonists rising in response to a centuries-old menace once thought to be mere folklore.
Ash of Gods’ storyline is constantly evolving in response to players’ choices, sometimes even resulting in death. But, the death of a character is not game over. Instead, the story moves forward with the death of that character and previous choices continuing to impact future events.
Combat in Ash of Gods is a blend of both traditional turn-based strategy and CCG gameplay. While individual tactics will depend upon the skills and classes of your characters, you will unlock and accumulate cards that have the power to unleash powerful abilities, sometimes altering the course of an entire battle.”
Watt and Volt are two twin robots, who have been forgotten by time and abandoned in an old robot factory. Marked as defective by mistake, if they wish to prove themselves as deserving a place in today’s world, they must pass a series of grueling tests.
Watt and Volt will have their work cut out for them, but the good news is you might not have to go it alone as although both robots can be controlled at any moment due to swapping between them, co-op is fully supported, so long as you have a friend to control the other robot. The only thing you’ll need to focus on is what your own robot is doing.
