Author's comments and explanations:
Salary Man Champ is a Japanese game made by Konami. This fun filled minigame fest is a journey through the life of a salary man, as he strives to be the pinnacle of Japanese society and climbs the corporate staircase.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: PCSX-RR v0.1.2
  • Aims for fastest time


I don't understand this game, but I've been told that it's really funny for Japanese people. What is funny for the rest of us is that there is an emulator bug where the game stops receiving input for several seconds. See if you can find this bug!

Reasons why this TAS should be accepted

  • Japanese people may find it very funny.
  • There is no N64 version of this game.
  • It's very optimized.

Reasons why it could be unacceptable

  • There is a very ugly emulation bug.
  • There might be a more entertaining setting if someone knows Japanese.

That's all. Thanks to FatRatKnight for making some nice "Author's comments" for his submission of The Guardian Legend.

adelikat: We usually prefer a high % of yes votes to be considered a strong viewer response so this was kind of borderline. Having said that, the response was good enough, and a number of people seem to be enthusiastic about this TAS (for whatever reason). I'll accept it.

sgrunt: Encode on the way (thanks to some modifications of alternative capture software which turn out to work well).

Spikestuff: Sync Note: For those figuring out the bios it's SCPH1001.
