I don’t know but the name of this visual novel is a tad on the odd side for me… The PSP never dies as game translations keep surfacing up from time to time. This time, it’s Ever 17; a visual novel that’s available on the Dreamcast, PSP, PS2, PC amongst other consoles. It only got an English translation for one platform for some reason and that’s the PC.
What’s Ever 17?
It’s a Japanese visual novel in which you choose between various options in order to progress in a story. Originally released in 2002 on the Dreamcast and the PS2; it got various other ports but only in Japanese. That was until the 2005 port for the PC in English. Now, 8 years after the game was poeted to the PSP; western audiences can finally play it! The game revolves around two guys that were trapped in an underwater theme park along with some other people that’s set to blow up in 119 hours due to high water pressure.
How do I get it?
First of all, this is a translation of a PSP game with files from the PC English version. This means that you need a PSP that’s on CFW to run the patched ISO; and obviously you can play it on your PSVita via Adrenaline and probably ARK. These are the instructions in a nutshell:
Download the patch from the link below
Unzip the patch in a seperate folder
Copy your Ever 17 game ISO into the folder of the patch
Drag the ISO onto ‘patch.bat’
Profit! (Copy the game over to your PSP/Vita and play!)
Due to the use of .bat files, this of course requires a Windows machine (WINE may or may not work). Say thanks to user ‘MrComputerRevo’ of GBATemp forums and the translators of the PC game for this patch 🙂
