If only those weren't so expensive. It would be fun to see what's on those disks.

The vendor offers an impressive collection of Asian games, including many Sierra games! There are some very recognizable official Japanese versions, but two other games IBM PC catch my eye: Police Quest 2 and Hoyle Classic Card Games, also with the Soft-World logo.

Like I said, it must've been a pretty big operation to have CD jewel cases with the company logo where the spindle grabby things should go. That's a custom molding thing! They have that, what seems like a passable print quality for the inserts, custom sleeves for the floppies, and they apparently distributed Ikari Warriors among probably other games, too.

So like I concluded in my first reply, I can't tell.

Unofficial though, right?

A Contra-style insert and the disks are labeled #2 & #3; fake, right?

You missed the third disk labelled #1 in the other pic. Also, that's Ikari Warriors, and having some advertisements for other things from the same company (Soft World, not Sierra) in the packaging is not that strange.

Threep tells me that the only official SCI translations were German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian and Japanese. There were a bunch of Polish Larry releases, I believe.

Were any of the other Japanese releases modified with the animae hair? I mean, have significant changes?

So Soft World is a distributor from Taiwan, so not Japanese but Chinese.

Here you can find pictures for many other adventure games with Chinese packages. I don't believe any of them were translated - only their package.
