snatcher appreciation post!!!

in 1988 hideo kojima wrote and directed a cyberpunk visual novel called "snatcher"

i'm currently playing the english sega cd port on my 3DS via an emulator and it's just ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

it literally opens up with a dedication in the intro that says "this story is dedicated to all those cyberpunks who fight against injustice and corruption every day of their lives"

the graphics are gorgeous, the world-building is top-notch, i can't wait to see where it goes next

@vantablack I'm looking at getting it... I noticed that the rom i found says japan, is there an english translation i should look for, or a patch, or is the japanese version in english?

@toydragon the english version is on 😁

minoor early game spoilers 

@vantablack found a copy and dang

this is good shit

also love how it references the metal gear solid games with the helper bot, like its intro with the Very Familiar Shadow on the wall, then "yeah it's inspired by the metal gear incidents, don't worry tho this robot can't actually attack, isn't it cute?"
