Geofront Team Releases Translation Patch For Super Early Falcom Game; Computer the Golf

Recently, The Geofront team, most prominently known for creating the impressive fan translation patches for The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero and The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure (also being used as the bases for the upcoming official localizations), has announced a collective effort to inform Falcom fans of the company’s history pre-Dragon Slayer.

With that practice in mind, they have released a translation patch for an ancient Falcom title I’m sure at least 99% of us have never heard of before, Computer the Golf, which is some sort of golf simulator. Unfortunately, there is no specific known release date for this title, though it is expected to have launched between May and October of 1983. For those unaware, Falcom was initially a computer consulting business in 1981 before various factors occurred, leading them to become the video game developer they currently are.

Suppose you’re curious about this rather unknown Falcom game. In that case, I encourage reading the full blog post on The Geofront website, where they detail more of the company’s history, patch installation information, and more. Shawnji extensively summates the circumstances regarding Falcom’s early days and this particular title.

The team is currently working on Dinosaur Resurrection.
