Hello!

For anyone who knows, the Xenosaga series received a special game called Xenosaga Freaks. It contained a demo for Xenosaga Episode II, a goofy word game, a cool database, and a visual novel called XenoComi. Many years ago, kare_reiko and I worked on a fan translation project to put XenoComi in English. Kare worked on the translation and provided the assets while I coded the game in Ren'Py. Unfortunately, we were only able to finish the first 5 chapters, which the game is divided into 7 different chapters focused on a different character from the cast. You can download KOS-MOS, chaos, MOMO, Ziggy, and Jr's chapters here: https://xeno-underground.net/jintoki/index.html

Update: though I've been busy with XenoChat and other stuff lately, Valkyrie informed me stokjia on Twitter recently did a translation stream of Allen's chapter! I got in touch with them and they are going to send me translations of Shion and Allen's chapters! Translation has been the biggest hurdle for me, so I'm super excited! I won't confirm when I will get it done, but I'm excited to get back to the project.

I still don't own Freaks and did not know it came with a demo.
Yeah! The demo just focuses on the beginning during the Miltian Conflict but includes some characters that normally shouldn't be there, like Shion and Ziggy.

Hi, I'm new so I might just not know where it is but the download link doesn't work anymore and says it has been moved. Would anyone know where it was moved to?

also if you have it would anyone have the translation of the Allen and Shion chapters whether its raw text or modded in?

edit: i found the new link https://xeno-underground.net/jintoki/ndex.html but when I click the windows option nothing happens

Hey! So nothing goes into your downloads folder? Maybe try right clicking?

As for your other question, due to many factors, Shion's chapter is partially done and we never started Allen's. Sorry. I hope to finish it one day, but I'm not sure if or when that'll be.

I got it to work but only by copying the link into a new tab which is wierd but it is working!! Shame about the Allen and Shion but I'm honestly just glad to have any of it

I'm looking forward to the completion of those parts, I also saw in the gameplay scripe that you seem to have finished translating the parts of allen and shion, and I try to read them as fiction. But did the two parts stop for some reason?

Along with the podcast and my job, I also do not have a translator at the moment. Once I'm less busy, I might try to work out the translation part since that's what is holding me up the most.

This link is to the directory for Jin's contributions on Xeno Underground. I apologize for the links not working.

Update: I did some testing and it looks like Google Chrome seems to be blocking direct downloads, but Firefox is not. Again, I apologize for the functionality of the site to change. It was not intended on my part. I will update the index.html file to reflect download directions.

Update to the update: I can understand the error now. The way the page was coded, I was using http instead of https links. I've since corrected the links on the ndex.html page and will restore the old index.html page. Apologies for the technical difficulties.

I'm still willing to help on Shion & Allen's routes, btw
Thank you! I think the translator I was talking with fell through. I asked them again awhile back and they never responded back. I don't want to keep bugging them about it, so I will look elsewhere.

I did ask if I could commission someone to translate it, but since I don't have a word count, I'll have to record more footage at some point and see what we can gather from that. But it's been hard for me to just sit down and focus on it.

I'm now 2.5 years into studying Japanese daily and I feel confident I can do the heavy lifting, if we can have a native speaker proofread it. I've gotten distracted with other projects since we last discussed it but I basically just need the time to sit down and screenshot it all. The laptop I'm working from isn't robust enough to record a bunch of video but I'll send you the save file once I've unlocked and completed Allen's route, and I'm willing to help write and debug the Ren'Py code, too.

I can record the videos! I'll just need the Allen save file unless I speedrun the other characters, which I possibly could.
