I’m new to the forum so please feel free to redirect me if I am not posting in the adequate category!
I’ve browsed the forum and I understand why you cannot create a game in a different language, however, would it be possible to offer an additional language in a pre-existing game?
Also, thinking purely from the author’s perspective: is there a demand for games in different languages? Would it increase value to a pre-existing game or make it more complex to integrate?
I strongly believe that ‘Choice of Games’ is a fantastic tool to promote reading through interactive and immersive stories. Moreover, the writing is sometimes a lot better than some of the popular mainstream authors. This should be accessible to as many people as possible, including those who cannot read English very well and would be deprived of the full experience if they had to rely on Google Translate.
The translation in itself is not the issue as there are people out there who would do it for free(myself included) provided there is no time pressure for it! It might not be a widely known fact for English speakers, but there is a very extensive community of people creating support content in foreign languages (mostly movie subtitles but also games translations) mostly for free.
I am keen to get other people’s perspectives, in particular authors and experienced players.
Thanks in advance for your reply!
