“Influent is a great way to learn new vocabulary. I love the idea and I love the execution. Influent gets a 9 out of 10.”

Über das Spiel

Andrew Cross is infuriated!


For three long years, he sat confined to his work, developing a device that he firmly believed to be a technological breakthrough in the way people would interact with the world around them. A device that could scan any object in the real world and then provide its name in any language! Duly dubbing his fancy new invention the "SanjigenJiten," Andrew arranged an appointment to demonstrate the device's amazing capabilities at the world's largest technology corporation, Technoglobe International.


But while on his visit, he fell for a girl he met in the lab, and while she stole his heart, someone else silently stepped in and stole his device! Now, Technoglobe has gone and swiftly marketed the SanjigenJiten as their own, even laying claim to the very name he had so cleverly concocted!


But Andrew Cross has a plan. He's made an even better version of his SanjigenJiten and launched an online campaign, swearing to learn 300 words in a foreign language to raise awareness of Technoglobe's blatant theft and prove his device really works! But does the SanjigenJiten really work? Can Andrew actually pull it off?! Play Influent and find out!!!



“By immersing the player in the target language, Influent closely models the way we naturally learn our native language. I suggest giving Influent a try.”
-Steve Hammond, Somnambulant-Gamer

Inspired by Dreamcast titles of old (namely Shenmue and Toy Commander) Influent immerses players in a fully interactive 3D environment where the names for absolutely every object in the game can be gleaned with a single click! In fact, even more information can be learned with a double-click! Every door, drawer, and cabinet can be opened with a right-click here and a right-click there, revealing more and more things to be learned! Packed to the brim with hundreds of native audio pronunciations (painstakingly recorded specifically for this game), Influent offers players a unique opportunity to enjoy learning both vocabulary and pronunciation in the language of their choice.

With 10 languages currently available for download, Influent combines the joys of playing a video game with the language learning process, resulting in real-life rewards and achievements that will remain with players for the rest of their lives.

Influent: Language Learning Redefined.

  • Audio from native speakers
  • Synonym swap functionality
  • Learn at your own pace!
  • Fully interactive modern apartment
  • Over 420 words to collect and master
  • Includes Nouns, Adjectives, and Verbs
  • 10 Languages to choose from (more coming soon!)


  • How exactly should I purchase the game?
If you're confused about how to purchase the game, please read the following example about Mark and Patricia.

If Mark wants to learn Latin, he should purchase the "Influent - Latina [Learn Latin]" store item. If his wife Patricia then wants to learn Swedish, Mark should then purchase the DLC store item entitled "Influent DLC - Svenska [Learn Swedish]." This can also be done from Patirica's perspective and will have the exact same result with Patricia purchasing the Swedish base game and then also buying the Latin DLC for Mark, herself, or even anyone else, to use on the same computer.

  • What User Interface Languages are supported?
The game's User Interface is currently only available in English and Japanese but we will be releasing free User Interface Language Packs in many languages soon!

  • Do you have plans to release more languages? When???
New Language Packs will be released as they are completed. A full list of languages that are coming soon can be found on the Official Website.

A BRIEF BACKGROUND


Influent is a Language Learning Game focusing primarily on vocabulary acquisition and pronunciation. It was initially developed in Japan at the University of Tsukuba's Entertainment Computing Laboratory under the Monbukagaksho Government Research Scholarship.

After research funding ran out, further funding from a wildly successful Kickstarter Campaign allowed for the completion of the game. A research paper on the ideas surrounding the game and its applications was published by the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), which can be viewed in its entirety here.

Ein wirklich gutes (und günstiges) Spiel um entweder eine schon bekannte Sprache wieder aufzufrischen oder den Einstieg in eine neue Sprache zu wagen.

Als Spieler bewegt man sich durch ein kleines Apartment (Schlaf- und Arbeitszimmer, Küche, Bad, Wohnzimmer) das mit allerlei Dingen vollgekramt ist. Überall liegen Sachen herum deren Vokabel man sich durch anklicken anhören (und lesen) kann. Dazu gibt es natürlich immer die entsprechende Übersetzung. Manche Objekte bestehen wiederum aus mehreren kleineren, die man sich ebenfalls anschauen und lernen kann. So besteht z.B. das Bett unter anderem aus der Bettdecke, dem Kissen, der Matratze usw. . Ebenfalls gibt es zu vielen Gegenständen sinnvolle Adjektive und Verben (z.b. zur Steckdose das Verb "aufladen").

So sammelt man nach und Nach verschiedene Vokabeln und kann, sobald man genügend hat (mindestens 10) ein Minispiel starten und diese abfragen lassen. Die Vokabelliste lässt sich auch von Hand sortieren, so dass man zusammengehörige Wörter auch zusammen in der Liste wiederfindet. Die Abfragen lassen sich noch konfigurieren, so dass man die Möglichkeit hat die Vokabeln als Text und/oder Wort ein und auszublenden, sich Tipps anzeigen zu lassen oder auch die entsprechende Übersetzung mit anzuzeigen. So kann man nach und nach den Schwierigkeitsgrad anheben und auch sein Hörverstehen ein wenig schulen.

Die einzigen zwei Nachteile sind, dass als Ausgangssprachen zur Zeit nur Englisch oder Japanisch zur Verfügung stehen. Um also, wie ich es tue, Französisch zu lernen muss man vorher schon recht gut Englisch können um das Ausgangswort zu verstehen. Das soll sich aber wohl in Zukunft noch ändern. Wenn man Englisch jedoch schon recht gut beherrscht (Es handelt sich in dem Spiel fast ausschließlich um Objekte die in jeder Wohnung vorkommen, also keine superspeziellen Wörter, die man sowieso nicht brauchen kann), hat mit Influent ein gutes und spaßiges Sprachlernspiel.

Der andere, aber nicht so große, Nachteil ist, dass es nur Gegenstände innerhalb der Wohnung zum lernen gibt. Also schon einfache Sachen wie "Baum", "Haus" oder "Auto" einfach fehlen. Hoffentlich wird es auch dazu später DLCs geben.

Hat mir ein paar neue Wörter der spanischen Sprache beigebracht, hilft aber keineswegs um Spanisch zu lernen, da um ehrlich zu sein 400 Wörter ganz OK sind, aber wen interessierts, was Fensterläden heisst. Keinen. Eben. Macht eigentlich keinen Spass, kein Entdecken und nach einer halben Stunde hat man alles gesehen. Da kann man die 9,99€ lieber in Vokabelkarten investieren und so lernen.

Good way to learn some new words. Technically, it's not really the best game, but who cares. It works and it helps. I wonder how it'll be in a few weeks, if I still remember all the words through this learning method. The price is very low btw. I had other language learning programs and they costed a fortune.

From me, two thumps up. I hope, they will make DLCs with even more words.

Influent is a very nice educational game to learn some basic vocabulary, but it's just a starting point within a limited domain: An appartment and all the things you can find there. What I really love is the idea of the game: You walk around and collect the vocabulary by clicking on objects. All words are available with pronounciation. And in a quiz you have to locate the objects in the appartment. The objects beeing positioned in the room make it easier to remember the words, because the words are linked to a visual context. The same goes for the verbs/adjectives beeing linked to objects. What I would love to see in the future are more locations (street, supermarket, office, etc.) to learn more vocabuary, perhaps a bit of grammar and a greater variety of quizzes. From a gaming standpoint of view it's not very attractive because of the limited "gaming character", but surely more fun than learning vocabulary lists by heart. The technical implementation is good. Summary: One of the best educational games to learn new vocabulary that I found so far. I hope to see more of Influent in the future.
