Does anyone here know about these games?

Towelket is a series of RPG Maker games inspired by MOTHER, with surreal, philosophical, and horrific themes. Currently, there are six games, and four spin-off titles.

Recently, a few people have started work on translating the series. If you can aide with the translation, feel free to join the IRC: irc://irc.rizon.net/towelket

Okay, here is Towelket 4 with a partial English translation so you can take an early peek. It covers the first 9 chapters - there's still a fair amount of text left to translate (about 30%), but I think it should be complete within the next few months.

Have fun, and Merry Christmas!

Found a minor issue in the translation. The barrel to the right does the same thing.

 No.5851

Finished playing through the translated portion of Towelket 4. I liked it, looking forward to the rest. There were a lot of barrels with the # END STRING thing and a few @ signs in dialogue text. Why did the game use male pronouns for Pian at the beginning and female ones towards the end? Anyway, good work so far.

After some consideration I opened a wordpress page for Towelket translations. I will continue posting major updates here as well, but for an overview of all game downloads, current translated script on active projects, rants etc. feel free to check out:
https://towelkettranslations.wordpress.com/
You're also welcome to post comments to any posts/pages on there.

Also, the year 2020 is coming to an end. Looking back I think it was a good year for English Towelket fans. I hope 2021 will be just as good.

>>5856
It's unfortunate that you didn't find the games interesting. I consider them a very specific taste myself, like ska music. Just like the other poster I think the main draw is getting sucked into the writing and the world. I've had conversations with some people who found the games dreadful, and also some people who liked the translated games a lot and are excited to play the rest.

>Why did the game use male pronouns for Pian at the beginning and female ones towards the end?
It's a bit complicated, but Pian in TK4 is female and most often referred to as Mocha's older sister. However, she is also married to Momo. Since Momo is the who gave birth to their children, Pian is called the husband in a few scenes.
However, it looks like there is some inconsistency and it gets mixed up sometimes.

I've uploaded a slightly changed version of Towelket 1 - the game should now run without having to install the RTP and the battle strings display without any leftover Japanese characters (I ran a check with vpgerson's rpgrewriter program and there aren't any non-ascii characters left in the script now. The brackets are actually special symbols). The script is otherwise nearly identical, I intend to check it for errors at some later point.
Also, I think that the Towelket 4 will be finished next week. Please wait warmly!

 No.5944

>>5943
It's really easy to get stuck there. I don't think you can soft lock the game but there's not much guidance on what to do. As I recall, to move forward you need to restore Conchelle's memories, talk to the surviving Conchelle robot on Earth, and listen to Momen's recording. If you've done all of that try going back to Armstrong's room and talking to her and listening to the recording again.

To enter chapter 7 you have to
- retrieve Conchelle's memory from the yellow planet
- find "Memories of the Past" in Kachikachi city
- show "Memories of the Past" to Arm and retrieve the screw
- return to the satellite

apparently the whole chapter 6 sequence after you start at the satellite goes like this:
1. install arm's chip from Pucchi's body, startup Conchelle and go into space
2. visit the yellow planet and obtain "Conchelle's memory"
3. Go to Earth and Scrap City. Enter Momen's lab and have Arm investigate the machine in the left room, she will say "transferring data"
4. Now you can go through the rail tracks to Kachikachi city. Once there move up the right ladder and enter the nearest building.
5. Talk to the white Conchelle and follow her into the garden room, keep talking to her until you receive "Memories of the past" and the message says "maybe I should show it to Arm?"
6. Return to Arm, show her the memories, after the scene make sure to grab the screw on the ground
7. Return to the satellite, interact with the glass case to insert "Conchelle's memory"
8. If you've done everything right, you'll see Pucchi Arm standing here and can go to chapter 7. (see pic)

Afaik there are two scenes that are optional: talking to Kerbas while you control Arm, and hearing Momen's recording on the table.

Then wouldn't it be better to just change all instances where she's referred to as a male to female? It would certainly make things less confusing. Feels like she was written as a guy as first, but was changed to a girl mid development but the early dialog wasn't edited to reflect that change.

Well, we'd then be changing the original script deliberately to make it fit a setting for the sake of convenience, even though we don't know if it's written like that on purpose or if it was an accident. Ideally, we would need to ask kanao what's their stance on this. With some luck we might get an answer. But when you work in a translation, you can't just casually change things like that just because the author wasn't explicit enough or made a mistake - you'd be changing on a whim how the target public will experience the game to make it fill your idea of what they need, instead of letting them choose for themselves what to believe. Unless, of course, the author themselves give the ok or something.

Honestly though, the confusion is part of the towelket experience.

while the individual details are a bit hazy, what's clear is they wanted to invade the domain of the moon goddess, and they seem to succeed as Zucche is found where the imperial princess was in 3. I think the author wanted to player to draw his own conclusions, my view is that Zucche wanted revenge for his empire being defeated over and over in the previous parallel worlds. That and he wanted to rebel against the goddess and her minions (deities or goddesses), since he apparently wouldn't be able to keep his free will and wanted to go down fighting. A "better to reign in hell than serve in heaven" kind of affair

I've cleared the game. I won't go into the plot for obvious reasons but I see why this one didn't get a demo while the first two did. You'll be completely confused right from the start if you didn't play the other two because it expects that you already played them. It's not like the Towelket series where playing in production order is recommended but not needed. If the chart gets updated with it then it needs to be mentioned that the Yorumorukimiri series is explicitly meant to be played in sequence.

What I can say about the plot that isn't a spoiler is that this time around it focuses on the Pons and the Fish Hats working together. Even the Fish Hats that only had bit roles in previous games like Arieair and Elegy get a good amount of screen time.

I am writing this message because I want to thank the translator of this saga from the bottom of my heart. I've gone through the first three games (3-2-1), and now I'm with the 4th one (6), and I'm loving them. Thank you so much for bringing Towelket to western audiences. I'm looking forward to the translation of the other games.

For my part, I added all the Towelket games on the IGDB website. If you find any mistakes (probably in the release dates), or if you want to add more information, feel free to do so.

I'm trying to figure out one of the songs that plays during emotional moments in some of the games. In the music files it's titled m13 and it's just a short 17 second clip. Part of me thinks it's a small bit of some other song since Towelket often uses classical and folk songs and I just can't figure out what that song is and another thinks it's not part of a bigger song at all and that bit is all there is to it.
