    Grasshopper Manufacture doing The Silver Case (PS1 adventure by Suda51) remake for PC

    The Silver Case was Goichi Suda's first project for Grasshopper Manufacture.

    The Silver Case, released back in 1991 for the original PlayStation, was an adventure game that was described as being even too difficult for native Japanese users. Playism is working with Grasshopper Manufacture to ensure the translation is as close to the source as possible.

    Some puzzles and sequences have to be modified to make them playable in English, like the encryption sequence that relied on how Japanese is presented in computer systems.

    When asked whether or not Grasshopper Manufacture would develop a game in the future similar in tone and style to The Silver Case, Suda-san said it would be “very exciting” to work on a game similar in style, but with a more modest team.
    Original article on nichegamer was taken down, but someone took a screen grab. The news is legit, though. It was confirmed by a senior marketing manager of Playism further down in the neoGAF thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=153

    This really deserves to be bigger news. This is huge, and sets an amazing precedent. A 17 year old PS1 game, as niche as they come, being remade and localized for PC.


    The floodgates are opening, and people need to jump on the possibilities.


    It's also a fantastic game, so, bonus.

    With it being a PC only release so far, chances of a physical release seem slim. But who knows, maybe in Germany.

    I just ordered Flower Sun and Rain DS. Should I wait and play The Silver Case first? Not like I have nothing else on my backlog, I can wait either way.

    Judging off the text blurb it sounds like it wasn't well designed if Japanese people had trouble playing it.

    very impressive of them to release the game 3 years before the Playstation was released in Japan I must say!
