I'm a huge fan of the Shadow Hearts series but somehow never actually got around to playing Koudelka, so this'll be fun.

discworld is all I read posted:

Ya know, that actually makes me wonder if the Japanese version of the game kept the English voice actors. I'll probably see if I can dig up an iso of it to check, but that might also explain why it got a North American release before the Japanese release. Cause usually Japanese games don't do that even to nowadays. Or maybe there was some other deeper story there.

I did a quick search on Youtube and that does appear to be the case - English voice track, Japanese subtitles. Weird.

I feel naming your cat Alice is inauspicious.

Also: The Daniel featured is probably meant to be the one the Book of Daniel is named after; he was mostly known for being captured by King Nebuchadnezzar, winning said king's favor with his interpretation of dreams and omens, and getting tossed into a lion's den when people jealous of his influence informed the king that he'd been worshiping the Israelite God instead of the king himself.

It's from his story that we get the idioms 'the writing on the wall' (one of the omens that Daniel interpreted), and, of course, 'into the lion's den'.

One thing that struck me was that Koudelka's design looked off... and then it struck me that miniskirts were invented around the 1950s-60s when the game is set in 1898! Or is there something I'm missing about why she's wearing what she's wearing?

take your pick of 'easier to move around in', 'easier to render', ':japan:', or 'this place is crawling with horror movie monsters and the miniskirt is what you're worried about?'.
