It is worth nothing the version of Fury of the Furries in this compilation is buggy here: do not try to push a block with the space bar pressed and do not try to find hidden places with the yellow or red furry, unless you want your Mac to crash badly. Standalone version is fine.

Yes, that's about the only kind of software where I prefer using my native language instead of English : the OS (be it Os7/8/9, Windows or any Unix flavor)

@mathieudel:
Are you using a French OS?

It's definitely running in English on my System. Not a hint of French anywhere in it! Other games are running in French, however.

That's true ! Looking at game's resource fork, we can see that several languages or present : US/FR/IT/SP/DE

That's the first example of application I see that uses the resource fork for what they were (partly) meant : easy localisation !

Fury of the Furries is in English!

Either the game I uploaded is smart enough (considering its era) to select its language at runtime, or you're wrong here : it's in French too.

As cool as Kalisto's software is, most of this stuff causes lots of problems with later operating systems, so it's probably best to stick with Mac OS 7 for these games.

You're right ! Kalisto's games are usually quite good/cool, but badly implemented and full of bugs, maybe because they used to be coded close to the metal (to quote Nicolas Gaume's words from http://www.agoravox.fr/actualites/economie/article/nicolas-gaume-un-homm...).
