Tietoja pelistä

Andrew Cross er rasende!


I tre lange år satt han lenket til sitt arbeide, der han utviklet en enhet han bestemt mente ville bli et teknologisk gjennombrudd i hvordan folk ville sosialisere med verden rundt seg. En enhet som kunne skanne et hvilket som helst objekt i den virkelige verden, for så å presentere objektets navn på et hvilket som helst språk! Andrew ga sin flotte nye oppfinnelse det passende navnet "SanjigenJiten", og arrangerte et møte for å demonstrere enhetens fantastiske ferdigheter hos verdens største teknologiselskap, Technoglobe International.


Men under sitt besøk falt han for en jente han møtte på laben, og mens hun stjal hjertet hans, snek noen andre seg stille inn og stjal enheten hans! Og nå har Technoglobe raskt gått og markedsført SanjigenJiten som deres egen, selv navnet han så klokt pønsket ut, har de gjort krav på!


Men Andrew Cross har en plan. Han har laget en enda bedre versjon av sin SanjigenJiten og lansert en nettkampanje, der han har sverget på at han skal lære seg 300 ord på et fremmed språk, for å rette oppmerksomhet mot Technoglobe sitt åpenbare tyveri, og bevise at enheten hans virkelig fungerer! Men fungerer virkelig SanjigenJiten? Kan Andrew få det til?! Spill Influent og finn det ut!!!



"Ved å la spilleren fordype seg i målspråket, modellerer Influent seg tett etter hvordan vi naturlig lærer oss språk. Jeg foreslår å gi Influent et forsøk."
-Steve Hammond, Somnambulant-Gamer

Inspirert av gamle Dreamcast-titler (særlig Shenmue og Toy Commander), lar Influent spillerne fordype seg i et komplett interaktiv 3D-miljø, hvor man kan skaffe navnet på absolutt alle objektene i spillet, med et enkelt klikk! Og man kan faktisk få enda mer informasjon med et dobbeltklikk! Hver dør, skuff eller kabinett kan åpnes med et høyreklikk her og et venstreklikk der, samtidig som det avsløres flere og flere ting som kan læres! Pakket til randen med hundrevis av lydopptak av uttaler på morsmål (møysommelig innspilt spesielt for dette spillet), tilbyr Influent spillere en unik mulighet til å ha det gøy når de lærer seg både vokabular og uttale, på det språket de velger.

Med 10 språk tilgjengelig for nedlasting i øyeblikket, kombinerer Influent gleden ved å spille et videospill, med prosessen å lære seg et språk, noe som resulterer i belønninger og prestasjoner som spillerne vil ha med seg resten av livet.

Influent: Språklære omdefinert.


  • Lydopptak fra folk med språket som morsmål
  • Synonymbytte-funksjon
  • Lær i ditt eget tempo!
  • Komplett interaktiv moderne leilighet
  • Over 420 ord til å samle og mestre
  • Inkluderer substantiv, adjektiver og verb
  • 15 språk å velge fra (flere kommer snart!)


  • Hvordan kjøper jeg egentlig spillet?
Hvis du ikke helt forstår hvordan du kjøper spillet, vennligst les det følgende eksempelet om Mark og Patricia.


Hvis Mark ønsker å lære seg latinsk, burde han kjøpe butikkproduktet "Influent - Latina [lær latinsk]". Hvis kona hans Patricia deretter ønsker å lære seg svensk, burde Mark kjøpe butikkproduktet DLC, med tittelen; "Influent DLC - Svenska [lær svensk]." Dette kan også utføres fra Patricia sitt perspektiv, og vil ha eksakt samme resultat når Patricia kjøper det svenske basisspillet, for så også å kjøpe det latinske DLC spillet til Mark, henne selv, eller hvem som helst, for å bruke på den samme PCen.

  • Har dere planer om å utgi flere språk? Når???
Nye språkpakker vil bli utgitt så fort de er ferdige. En komplett liste over språk som kommer snart, finner du på den offisielle hjemmesiden.

LITT BAKGRUNNSHISTORIE


Influent er et språklærespill som hovedsakelig fokuserer på vokabulartilegnelse og uttale. Det ble innledningsvis utviklet i Japan på Tsukuba-universitetet sitt laboatorium for databehandling og underholdning, under Monbukagakusho sitt offentlige forskningsstipend.

Da forskningsmidlene tok slutt, gjorde videre finansiering fra en enormt suksessfull Kickstarter-kampanje at spillet kunne fullføres. En forskningsrapport på ideene rundt spillet og dets applikasjoner ble publisert av Foreningen for informasjonsbehandling i Japan (IPSJ), som kan leses i sin helhet her.

Influent is not useful for learning a new language. Walk through a landscape and learn a smattering of nouns for household objects and nothing else. No grammer rules, no other words, no cultural context. Can you guys even understand how useless that is? Learning how to say random words for objects you will probably not need to talk about without ever communicating anything about them whatsoever?

Hell, you wll never need most of these nouns as a beginning student of a foreign language anyways. It would be far more useful to simply learn how to say "How do you say this?" in whatever language you are learning so you can learn words that are actually useful to you.

I learned way more useful information on youtube videos in an hour than I ever did with this.

The only good thing about this is the soundtrack by Lifeformed. It is the soundtrack from the game Dustforce and it is truly excellent. I have no idea why it is in this product.

You will not learn how to communicate a single complete thought or simple sentence with this software .

An okay tool with several drawbacks

Having years of university training and real-life experience in teaching not only foreign language but also second language acquisition classes, I can say that Influent can work well as an additional teaching tool to the ones learners already have, provided the players know what they’re doing and are aware that Influent is not actually teaching them how to speak the target language; It merely trains them in recognizing words from that language. Given that, Influent is fairly okay at achieving what it’s supposed to do and I can see it helping certain learner types, although at the same time, it is likely to be just a waste of money to a lot of people, especially as there are products out there that are much better at helping people learn foreign languages. The major drawback being that Influent does not teach grammitcal articles (grammatical gender) for European languages. More about that further down.

Primary Issues of the software

Influent (2016) was developed by the US American game designer Rob Howland and published with the help of his alma mater, the University of Tsukuba (筑波大学), and Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (文部科学省【MEXT / 文科省】). Sadly, despite the academic support behind this project, its issues are clearly visible right away and it is very obvious that Howland does not have a linguistic background. The protagonist in the game simply translates nouns or adjective-adverbs from English into the target language and it is limited to objects inside the virtual apartment.

To highlight what I mean, we can briefly look at the impressively handy, elaborate, yet slim Langenscheidt’s picture dictionaries, which contain words, transliterations, pictures (and if you own the TING pen even audio clips of proper pronunciation) of local foods, instruments, sports, holidays, animals, tools, jobs, lab & hospital equipment, body parts, family members, ethnic groups in the target culture, climate zones, and so on and so on and it even includes the necessary vocabulary for any occasion reaching from birthdays to funerals or visits to the barber shop or the postal office. And it is merely twice the price of Influent's base game despite offering that much more. Not only that, the roughly 300 page book can even be brought with you, so if you don’t know a word, you can show it to people.

Influent on the other hand is limited to objects inside the virtual apartment (as can be seen on the store page’s screenshots) and the vocabulary is very narrow, albeit very useful. It can even be argued that one could simply use a normal dictionary and a language tandem to probably achieve equivalent if not superior results.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=603282417

Gameplay mechanics

The player can move the protagonist around a virtual apartment, click on objects, listen to how they’re pronounced and look at how they’re spelled in the target script or how they’re transliterated into Romaji, Romaja, or Hànyǔ Pīnyīn (depending on the language pack). Additionally, the player can create vocabulary lists and make his / her own quizzes. The game will then show and say a term and the player will have to click on the correct item in the room. You can pretty much achieve the same effect by pasting post-its around your actual apartment and by having a smartphone dictionary app pronounce certain terms for you, in case you forget how to say them.

You could say that doing that in the game would be less work for you, but writing down new vocabulary, having to use / activate different areas of your brain (to write it down and to read the word) leaves a much bigger, better imprint of the target word in your memory than merely reading it and having the computer program pronounce it for you.

Critique and conclusion

There are multiple issues when it comes to Influent, first of all, there are products out on the market that are much better than Influent and cost about the same, so I suggest going out to bookstores and checking them out before buying this. Of course it's definitely possible that they don't have any better alternatives in your area, in which case Influent might be good. Secondly, when learning a language, you usually learn four basic fields: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking. Influent can only provide the two “passive” skills, reading and listening, you still need a training partner or a formal education to learn (or at the very least have someone correct) the writing and speaking parts. If you cannot find a partner in your area, there are multiple online forums and websites that focus on connecting people for specifically that purpose alone. Influent will also not teach you anything about sentence structures, tenses, clauses or (in-)formal language, in fact, it will not teach you anything beyond the available vocabulary.

When it comes to European languages with grammatical gender, Influent will also not provide you with the necessary grammatical articles (Der, Die, Das in German, for example). Let's say you click on the bed, Influent will merely play an audio clip saying "Bett" while showing the correct spelling, but it won't say "Das Bett", which would definitely have been the better choice. Grammatical gender is essential for many European languages, ommiting that means that learners will lack crucial communication skills.

I can see Influent work as something you use besides the learning tools you already have (like school- and exercise books as well as audio tapes or movies), especially when trying to learn gender neutral languages, but it definitely isn’t enough to learn a language with. I like the digital / game approach to learning languages, however the execution isn’t perfected yet and still needs some work.

It's OK to get a little bit into a language but it is not very clever in the way it teaches you words.

- It will only teach you either the singular or the plural form, which means you have to look up the words anyway.
- The nice lady will only tell you the word to click on, but not its gender, which is kind of a shame in a language that has grammatical emphasis on gender.
- Verbs also just come in the infinitive form which again, depending on the language you want to learn, isn't exactly useful.
- A lot of the words are either so basic that you don't actually need specific software to pick them up.
- The interface is a bit clunky and it can be kind of frustrating to rearrange the lists. Also, if you misclick you have to do a time attack with the whole list that you put the word in again and again to “master” it, which can cause mild annoyance.

AFAIK there are only new language packs planned but not actual expansions that add some more words/areas

I wish I could post a review with "maybe". But since I have to choose, I'll choose "no'.

I got so excited to see a sleek-looking language game on sale that I proceeded to purchase it without looking more closely at the reviews. Being somewhat of a language nerd, I must say I was disappointed.

First of all, the title, with its cute and clever pun, is pretty much misleading. This is just a (limited) vocabulary game. Nothing "fluent" about learning a language here.

This game's approach to learning a foreign language comes down to pointing at objects and listening to how they are called. Then you can play some games, such as looking for specific objects around the apartment as fast as you can. It seems like most of the effort was put into the graphics and other aspects of the gameplay. There is no method or theory behind the language learning. Did they do the game in collaboration with a specialist? I highly doubt so. I know this game was Kickstarted, but it's wrong to make a language game if you're only a game developer and then hint at "fluency" when you try to come up with the title. Learning a language is a process which requires the application of various methods, some of which the developers should have explored, in my opinion. For all I care, the game could be 2D and less shiny and pretty, but with more meaningful and diverse activities.

Yes, this game has its good sides, it looks pretty and it teaches you words in a logical context. It can help you expand your vocabulary a little. But that's it. The language lover in me will want to finish it and master all the vocabulary, but I expected more.
