Feel free to ask any other questions and they'll be added here.
What is Policenauts?
Policenauts is a spiritual sequel to Snatcher, the digital comic originally planned and written by Hideo Kojima between Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. It was released in Japan for the PC98 in 1994, with console ports for the 3DO in 1995, and the PlayStation and Saturn in 1996. It features an entirely different setting, plot, and characters from Snatcher, but the two games do share some peripheral details. Its game system is a refined version of Snatcher's, with a point-and-click interface instead of scrolling through menus at the bottom of the screen; "Look" and "Investigate" have been combined into one command; and the shooting scenes feature arcade-style shooting, where you have full control over your aim, instead of a 3x3 grid.
When will the patch be released?
The PlayStation version's patch was released on August 24th, 2009. The Saturn version's patch release date is... (say it with us) when it's done.
What are you working on right now?
The Saturn version's patch, and a small 1.01 update to the PlayStation patch. For details on the Saturn patch's progress, see .
What do I do with the patch?
You first make images of your Policenauts discs with an ISO program, then individually apply the xdelta patches to each disc with another program. For help, check .
Will there be patches for other versions?
Possibly, but we don't know when. The order for future patches would be: PC98, 3DO.
Will you do an English dubbed version?
No. We couldn't provide anywhere near the level of quality that would be necessary to make it a pleasant experience.
On what can I play the patch?
For the PlayStation version, a PlayStation emulator or PlayStation hardware (PS1, PS2, PSP). We recommend hardware, if you can. We'll be providing tips for emulation at release.
For the Saturn version, a Saturn emulator or a Saturn.
Where can I find the game?
The game can be purchased from the following locations:
No compensation is received by any team member in exchange for providing these links.
Where can I find a ROM of the game?
You mean ISOs of the game? Not from us! We do not endorse piracy. See the above question and answer.
I heard there are three versions of the PlayStation version of Policenauts. Is this true?
Yes, there's the original '96 release, the The Best re-release, and the PSone Books re-release. The PlayStation patch is compatible with all three versions.
Can I help in any way?
We aren't currently looking for assistance with any aspect of the project.
Do you accept donations?
We do not accept monetary donations. The project is pure fan work. However, if you go all stalker on us and obtain our addresses and send us some sort of gift, we would not return it unless it were money (or maybe a couple other things).
