Tanita: Plasticine Dream - French-to-English patch

Tanita is a quirky Russian stop-motion claymation adventure game that was released in 2006. It's very similar to the cult classic The Neverhood. It's also quite hard!

Unfortunately the English version was never released in retail. This patch converts the French retail release [Tanita - Une Aventure Aquatique] to the English one. Actually the game has no dialogue (except for one spoken line!) and no in-game text, so the only thing that needed localizing was the main menu.

The French retail release is DRM-free. Install the game from the original DVD and then apply the patch. You can change the resolution of the game by editing the config.info file. And although the game was made in 4:3 resolution you can even use widescreen resolutions with no problem. The first time you run the game, go to the menu and turn the Sound volume all the way up, else you won't hear any sound effects.

You can download the patch here.

There's a very tough frog shooting arcade mini-game. If you can't pass it, just download this Easy Frogs patch here. It makes the mini-game a lot easier and it doesn't affect your saves.

I also wrote a walkthrough in English since I couldn't find one. You can download it here.

Enjoy!
