Xenosaga Pied Piper Or: What am I even doing with my life at this point?
So what is this anyway?
Xenosaga: Pied Piper is a mobile phone game released in 2004 in Japan as a side story from the main trilogy as a way to flesh out one of the main characters, in this case, Ziggy. It takes place 100 years before the events of Xenosaga 1, and chronicles his journey to track down the cyber-terrorist known only as Voyager.
So how are you going to be playing this?
The thing is, it’s basically impossible to play this game anymore, as this is about as inaccessible as you can get. However, there is one remaining part of this game that has survived, and that’s a script covering the main scenes in the game. No optional dialogue, just the main story. I originally planned to just draw stick figures for screenshots but I think that would get old very fast. So instead, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to turn this into audio drama. And that is where you all reading this come in.
As much as I would love to do every single voice and butcher every woman’s dialogue horribly, I think it would be more interesting to get the subforum involved and cast out the roles. Since the script has fallen into the web archive, I’d like to preserve this in whatever way I can.
I have a Google doc that explains the roles and rules in further detail here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18xCFr1vSRMHlsb9cQmCFj8_-uASDcsOP7xidChg4CEA/edit?usp=sharing
