I played the DOS version a loooooong time ago, I beat the game even though I can't read chinese, no cheating, I remember there was an item that did high damage but given only at very limited amount like 2 or 3 max throughout the game I forgot. Or maybe I did cheat but only at last boss...welll..I forgot, but I tried my best not to cheat a game that I like and not impossible to beat.
I tried the demo for windows version a few years ago and it surprised me a windows version existed at that time, sadly the language barrier was still there and the translation never got completed, time goes on and out of the blue I google this game again and read this news.
I hope Steam will remake the game with English translation. This game is very memorable, great story and soundtracks, I've explored every inch of the area in the game because I got stuck a lot and couldn't read Chinese, I can only read very very few words >< , I remember even taking a note of some dialogues from the game and asked my dad for translation lol.
Let's just hope it will happen, can't wait to replay this great game in a language that I can actually understand.
I also hope if it does come true, the game will have a great success so they'll bring all the sequels and prequels to English too.
