I suppose there comes a time for any freelance translator in this line of work to translate nukige. If I was expecting not to do that then certainly I am working for the wrong company. With that said, I did jump at the opportunity to work on T!GISE (abbreviated due to the long and extremely unwieldy title). Certainly, having worked on darker titles in the past, I was all for something a bit more light-hearted. Given the title and the story, I think I found a winner in T!GISE. Softhouse Seal has a way with titles if nothing else.
The story centers on one Daiguuji Kyousuke, a seemingly unassuming PE teacher at Hanabatake Academy who has a striking resemblance to a Go Nagai-esque 70s robot series character.
Apparently, a master craftsman of many a wacky device, he gets snubbed for the position of adviser of the school’s science club (mostly on the grounds of NOT being a science teacher) and thus hatches a plot to seek revenge against the school who wronged him. This vengeance takes the form of his utilization of a variety of inventions for sexy, sexy purposes.
This game has it all. A (somewhat) clandestine organization, a ditsy sidekick, inventions of all sorts, and even a magical girl! Really, I am not making this stuff up.
On the standpoint of budget nukige, it’s easy to assume that there isn’t a lot of substance to work with, but the hilarious dialogue in T!GISE more than makes things worthwhile. The over the top, delusions of Kyousuke and the random references are sure to elicit a chuckle in between faps.
With that said, the game was a joy to translate if nothing else for the lack of cringe-worthy material to work with. If it’s goofy eroge you seek, then I think you’ll find it here. Now if only there were some robots in it…
