Napple Tale is a cute platforming RPG for the Dreamcast, designed by a team of mostly women, with excellent music by Yoko Kanno. I routed the game as a speedrun.
The thing that made this game accessible to me is the wonderful fan translation patch by Cargodin in 2019.
I made an updated version of the patch in June 2020, which changes one word in the credits. This word wasn't even affected by the fan translation -- it was always there, in English, in the original game. The developers did not know the connotations of this word in American English. I recommend using this version, especially if you're going to stream it.
The fan translation requires an ISO of Napple Tale in .cdi format to play.

- kihaku's guide - notes about where to find things in Napple Tale, with screenshots. In Japanese, from 2003.
- The official Napple Tale website (from 2000) is down, but here is Rolly's archive of it
- Cargodin translated the website into English alongside translating the game!
