Good news everyone!

The long-awaited Italian Language Pack is now available! This completes the standard EFIGS collection of the most commonly spoken first-world languages, which has been a big milestone for Influent for quite some time now!

Furthermore, a handful of previously bothersome issues have been addressed, most importantly:

  • Translation text bleed issue fixed
  • Save Data corruption after slot deletion issue fixed (thanks gwebb!)

You can pick up a copy of the Italian DLC for $4.99 USD or if you don't already own Influent, grab the full game packaged with either Italian or any of the other 11 Language Packs for $9.99 USD.

Ciao!

Об этой игре

Эндрю Кросс вне себя от злости!


В течение трех долгих лет, он сидел, погрузившись в свою работу, разрабатывая устройство, которое, как он твердо верил, станет технологическим прорывом в способе, которым люди будут взаимодействовать с миром вокруг них. Устройство, которое могло бы сканировать объекты окружающего мира и затем давать им названия на любом языке! Как и полагается, Эндрю дал своему новому необычному изобретению имя, назвав его "SanjigenJiten", и организовал встречу в крупнейшей в мире технологической корпорации Technoglobe International, чтобы продемонстрировать удивительные возможности устройства.


Во время своего визита он влюбился в девушку, которую встретил в лаборатории. И пока она пыталась украсть его сердце, кто-то незаметно зашел и украл его устройство! После чего Technoglobe исчезла и вскоре вывела на рынок SanjigenJiten как свой собственный продукт, предъявив права даже на само его название, которое Эндрю так остроумно придумал!


Но у Эндрю Кросса был план. Он создал более совершенную версию своего SanjigenJiten и запустил кампанию в сети Интернет, поклявшись выучить 300 слов на иностранном языке, чтобы повысить информированность об откровенном воровстве Technoglobe и доказать, что его устройство действительно работает! Но действительно ли SanjigenJiten работает? Сможет ли Эндрю справиться на самом деле?! Играйте в Influent и узнаете!!!



“Погружая игрока в целевой язык, Influent близко имитирует способ, которым мы естественным образом изучали свой родной язык. Я предлагаю дать Influent шанс.”
-Steve Hammond, Somnambulant-Gamer

Вдохновленная проектами Dreamcast прежних времен (а именно Shenmue и Toy Commander), Influent погружает игроков в полностью интерактивное 3D окружение, где при помощи одного клика можно узнать название абсолютно любого объекта в игре! На самом деле, можно узнать даже еще больше информации при помощи двойного клика! Каждую дверь, выдвижной ящик и шкаф можно открыть при помощи клика правой кнопкой мыши тут или там, находя все больше и больше предметов для изучения! Заполненная до краев сотнями аудио, озвученных носителями языка (старательно записанных именно для этой игры), Influent предлагает игрокам уникальную возможность насладиться как изучением новых слов, так и улучшением произношения выбранного ими языка.

С десятью языками, доступными в данный момент для загрузки, Influent совмещает радость от игры в компьютерную игру с процессом изучения языка. Итогом этого становятся награды и достижения в реальной жизни, которые останутся с игроками навсегда.

Influent: новый подход к изучению языка.

  • Аудио от носителей языка
  • Функция замены синонимов
  • Учитесь со своей собственной скоростью!
  • Полностью интерактивная современная квартира
  • Более 420 слов для сбора и изучения
  • Включает существительные, прилагательные и глаголы
  • 10 языков на выбор (скоро будет больше!)


  • Как именно я могу купить игру?
Если вы не знаете как купить игру, пожалуйста, прочитайте следующий пример про Марка и Патрицию.

Если Марк хочет изучать латынь, ему нужно купить в магазине позицию "Influent - Latina [Learn Latin]". Если позже его жена Патриция захочет изучать шведский, Марку нужно будет купить в магазине дополнительный контент под названием "Influent DLC - Svenska [Learn Swedish]." Это может быть также сделано и от лица Патриции и будет иметь точно такой же результат, если Патриция купит базовую игру со шведским языком, после чего купит дополнительный контент (DLC) для латыни для Марка, себя или кого-то еще, кто будет пользоваться этим же компьютером.

  • Вы планируете добавить больше языков? Когда???
Новые языковые пакеты будут выпущены, как только работа над ними будет закончена. Полный список языков, которые скоро выйдут, можно посмотреть на официальном сайте.

КРАТКАЯ СПРАВКА


Influent — это игра для изучения языка, делающая основной упор на увеличение словарного запаса и произношение. Она была изначально разработана в Японии в лаборатории развлекательных приложений университета города Цубака в рамках правительственной исследовательской стипендиальной программы Monbukagaksho.

После того, как финансирование исследования иссякло, закончить игру позволило дальнейшее финансирование от невероятно успешной кампании, проведенной на Kickstarter. Научная статья об идеях, связанных с игрой, и их применении была опубликована Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ). В полном виде ее можно посмотреть здесь.

Примерно так я представляю себе идеальную игру для изучения иностранного языка.
Что же в ней такого хорошего? То, что она дает те слова, которые действительно нужны в жизни и которые окружают тебя повседневно на примере обычной квартиры/дома. Ты можешь увидеть вещь в её привычном месте, узнать её название, произношение, правильное написание и сдать тест по пройденному. Да, пускай тут нету никаких правил, времён и прочего, но для тех, кто хочет хотя бы просто пополнить свой словарный запас, эта игра - идеальна.
Если я когда-нибудь захочу выучить абсолютно неизвестный мне язык, я обязательно обращусь к Influent.
10/10 для своего жанра.

Before you buy this game, make sure you are buying it for the RIGHT reasons. This game is amazing, exactly the kind of learning style I love and was looking for.

BUT

If you are buying this game to learn how to speak fluently (For me, fluent Japanese) by solely relying on this game and nothing else, you will be very disappointed.

If you are buying this game as just one of the many tools to help you learn a language, and you consider yourself a visual learner, then this is perfect in my opinion.

Being able to click any object in the house and instantly be told what it is called, is the next best thing to having a native speaker with you while you point at things asking what they are called. As a huge plus with using the game, you see how it is written; in Romaji, Hiragana, or Kanji depending on what you pick if learning Japanese, which helps a lot more for me personally than just hearing audio alone. Oh and I highly recommend only using Kana instead of Romaji, you will be glad you did in the long run.

The time challenge mode turns the game into a scavenger hunt, making your brain work to remember what each thing is called. I feel that having to recall something, especially with a clock counting down, helps you memorize the words.

Alongside basic nouns from clicking on things in the environment, you can also unlock adjectives and verbs associated with each noun. I really like that because it adds context in a way; like clicking on the word "bed" has the verb "to sleep" available to learn.

So in the end, please use this game as a wonderful tool to master your language alongside your many other tried-and-true methods. I am certainly enjoying it and I feel I am memorizing the words much quicker than looking at definitions in a book. The audio is also very clear and easy to understand.

As for any negatives, I just have a few suggestions rather than anything actually negative. It would be nice if you could do the time challenge mode where objects light up and you have to type in what the object is called, or maybe choose from a multiple choice list. Right now it is just one direction, you hear the word and click the right object, never the other way around. Also if there was an option to have the speaker say the word again but slowly, to catch those quick syllables.

Weather you decide this game is for you or not, please go out there and learn a new language! Trust me, it feels amazing! :)

ATTENTION, NEED TO KNOW TIPS: When doing the time challenge, you have to DOUBLE click an object to select it as your answer. I don't think it tells you that, or I didn't notice. :) Double clicking outside of the game mode, will bring up a window with more details on that object/word you are clicking. Also, when you click on your vocab list, click a word, and there is a little "eye" icon you can click to see what the word is in your native language. I also HIGHLY recommend reading all the hints at the top left of the screen to get the most out of this game, it doesn't take long to read them all. Have fun all!

Everyday I wake up in this apartment trying to think of a way to escapse, but my hands never grab anything. They feel cold and lifeless. the only other thing living here in this eternal hell is the cat, but I think it's dead. Every time I try to talk it feels like my mouth can't open. Some days I spend just by looking at the door thinking someone will save me, but no one comes to my rescue. In the time that I don't try to escape I learn Korean, cause it's the only interaction I can get in this hell. 내 발은 아픈, 그리고 먹을 수 없습니다. 누군가가 저를 저장합니다. 8/10

You are locked in your apartment until you can recite every object in another language.

What's the [insert language] word for HELP!

------------------------------------------

Essentially you walk around an apartment suite adding common household objects to your vocabulary inventory which serves as a sort of self-pacing mechanism. Find them all and you will learn how to say 420 words in another language, (284 nouns, 68 adjectives and 68 verbs,) all you have to do is retain them all.

If anthing this will most certainly serve to give you a basic understanding of pronounciation in a more interactive and engaging way than listening to someone repeating the same words on an audio cassette.

Do audio cassettes give you achievements for learning words in another language? No.
Does this game teach you necessary fundamentals in another language? Not really.
Will you learn how to say words like "lotion," "nuts" and "ceiling fan"? Absolutely!

It's a excellent game for those looking to brush-up on their vocabulary. It is not, I repeat not for those looking to start learning a language. I am currently taking a course in french, and this has been helpful for working on my vocabulary.

Influent is quite basic in nature with the simple objective of walking around a small 4 room apartment clicking on objects to learn their pronounciation in any given target language. Although it hosts this extremely simplistic goal it really does a sucessful job at drawing the players attention in and making them want to learn. It is notable that Influent isn't going to form you into some language speaking master capable of conversing in any language but it does provide a solid baseline in which you can form your grammatical understanding on top of. If anything, just for the purpose of learning 400+ words this game is a invaluable source for language learners in a somewhat beggining state.

I walk around and learn some words here, then I go to duolingo and learn some stuff there. Makes a great pair with duolingo.

BEWARE: there seems to be no way to change the controls so if you're not a WASD user, you'll have to use the arrow keys.

Still, great way to learn basic everyday words and impress your grandma.

EDIT: Fromt he developer: how to change keybinds

>We have posted this information on our help page[playinfluent.com]
>
>"Controls can be customized by holding down the ‘SHIFT’ key on PC or the ‘OPTION’ key on Mac when the game is launched."
>
>This means hold down the button when you hit "PLAY" on steam it self. A config window will pop up, Input is the 2nd tab.

You never know when naming household objects in Latin will come in handy.

Its limitations aside (you are stuck inside a small apartment), it's a very effective tool for vocabulary drills. Though I do wish they'll eventually release expansion packs that introduce you to other locations (stores, resturants, parks etc.)

A fun little way to learn a language. You play as an inventor trying to prove his language-learning device, and you spend your time wandering about his apartment, finding out the words for different objects and testing yourself on your retention. I could go in-depth about this, but this is basically an inexpensive learning aid, and it does its job very well. I'm currently using this to refresh and bolster my Chinese language skills, but I'll certainly be purchasing other languages as time goes on!

Great for learning common vocab.

Main annoyance with the game is the controlls, both first and third person views are clunky and I often misclick due to the poor highlighting and size of objects (for example - pens and pencils).

Still, totally worth the cash - I wouldn't use this as the only learning tool, this works well as a daily vocab trainer but doesn't replace a teacher or text book.

Great game! I've been looking for something like this for a LONG time, and I'm happy to say that this title did not disappoint. For backstory: I've been learning German for a little over two months, and though my best friend/mentor/fellow steam user who is a native German has been able to help, I was really just missing the entertainment factor of learning the language. I stumbled upon this title and decided to give it a shot, and after just a quick session I can already tell that it will be a BIG help. On it's own this game will not teach you a language, but using it as a tool alongside your language learning method could prove invaluable in helping with word retention and recognition. I figured out very quickly that it is best to add words you are familiar with to the database first, then add the words in the level of difficulty they present. The time test goes based on order of entry, so if you randomly add words it will be almost impossible to complete. Once I realized how the game worked I began to set up list in varying difficulties based on my own ability and knowledge, and now when I do time trials they are organized based on words I know by heart, words I have trouble recognizing, and words I barely know/don't know. It really is a great help to have this kind of practical exercise in language recognition and I would certainly recommend this game to anyone else that is already learning a new language and needs some extra practice.

I am currently taking classes to learn Russian (in my second semester), and this game is VERY helpful with vocabulary. What people need to understand is that there is no magic, effortless, lazy-oriented utility to help you learn all of a language. Language is very complicated and if you want to thoroughly learn one you need to put in a lot of effort to memorize and pound grammar (that is sometimes completely illogical at that) into your head. I really don't understand the notion from people that this game isn't worth it just because it only teaches vocabulary. Do they know that is the hardest part of a language? Vocabulary is endless hours of memorization and usage.
With that being said, I will say that if you are actually trying to learn the language and not just doing this for fun or because you like memorization games (kinda like me, mainly why I'm learning a new language) this game is best used in conjunction with some self study of the grammar or a class to learn the grammar and boulster your confidence in the language. This game will SIGNIFICANTLY improve your usage of the language because vocabulary is key to being able to express yourself. Grammar is important, but if you use the wrong conjugation or maybe even tense because you are not quite fine tuned with the grammar most native speakers will still be able to understand you.

All in all, I think this game is one of my favorite. There is so many languages you can learn. If you like memorization as much as I do (ALOT), like learning languages, and enjoy simple games, this is the game for you. I think this game is one of the best I have ever played. I just bought it last night and already finished Russian, gonna practice some more and then move to German or Chinese.

The game overall is great if you're willing to sit down for a few hours and learn things. If you are actually interested in learning the actual language and speak it fluently I recommend you attend a class because all Influent does is teach you words which leads me to one of my great criticism of this game. You have words - now what? Exactly, the second step in learning languages is sentence formation and the proper pronunciation of the sentence that you created.

I believe the way to improve this is to include a simple sentence structure in which users can drag/click words to input in the basic structure of a sentence going on to improve it as they go on in learning the language advancing to more complex sentence structures. A great platform is already provided in game for us to use(press e/use the computer in order to enable this mini-game)

A secondary/optional addition to the sentence structure program is the speech program in which the user talks through a microphone testing their pronunciation versus the correct pronunciation of the sentence at hand.

My last minor criticism is the Alphabet of the language isn't shown anywhere. A fix for this could be an interactive poster where we could browse the alphabet and try to make words by connecting alphabet letters. Of course in order to learn the alphabet effectively we would also have to learn to write these characters, so maybe a notebook on the study desk could help us by first showing us how to write the alphabet one stroke at a time then moving on to sentence creation after they unlock it from the computer.

Example progression:
Interactive Poster Alphabet> connect words> find the item they connect to>learn to write alphabet> learn basic sentence structures> learn how to write basic sentence structures> learn complex sentence structing> learn how to write complex sentence strucres

*sidenote* I have the Japanese dlc for Influent and I do enjoy it having 2 years of High-school Japanese(3 years out of practice) learned it was a great refresher course.

Influent is a great idea. It's nice to be able to point at anything and find out the word.
As others have mentioned, this game is not going to teach you to speak a foreign language, it's just a way to learn some vocabulary. It's unlikely in my opinion that anyone would be content with learning a few nouns and have no understanding of how the language works so you definitely won't learn to speak a new language from scratch with this software.

I had this in mind when I chose the language to install. Since I speak Spanish pretty fluently I knew there wouldn't be much point there. Instead I chose to install the French version as I have a basic understanding of French. Now, I loved the point at anything and learn how to say it concept, the problem for me is that the things you can point at are household objects that, if you are learning a language, you are likely to have learnt elsewhere.

I found the environment to be really claustrophobic, it's a small flat with only a lounge, a kitchen, a bathroom (which I initially missed as the door's shut) and a bedroom.
I was disappointed that you can't go outside. You can't even see out of the windows. There could have been all kinds of interesting vocabulary to learn if you could. Different environments would really help here. The key would be to expose the player to environments with vocabulary unlikely to be covered in textbooks or other forms of study. It would also make it more exciting. What if the game took place on an aircraft, or in a castle? That may sound strange but how many people learn to say lifejacket or moat when studying a language? I'm not saying it isn't practical to start in a house as that is more useful, I'm just saying if someone is really trying, chances are they will have learnt those words elsewhere. This could be a great way to learn less familiar vocab with new environments as DLC. They wouldn't even need to be big, think of the possibilities involved in naming all of the parts of a car, for example.
There also need to be more minigames to memorize new words, in my opinion. The my Spanish coach DS game had good ideas here that the developer could ape perhaps.
Bottom line, great idea with good potential but not quite there yet.

A very useful learning aid. If you've tried to learn a new language before and felt constricted by a small vocabulary this is a good solution. It only teaches vocabulary, so make sure to have anouther resource for grammar.

Having lived in China for 8 years, as of writing this, and having never actually formally studied Chinese, this "game" helps in two ways.

First, it helps fill in some really rudimentary gaps in my vocabulary.

Second, it helps to reinforce some of the vocabulary I've heard but not cemented in my mind.

When it comes to learning a language, however, it is the person's attitude that makes the real difference. This means any tool is only as effective as the driver behind it.

All the same, I'd recommend this application to anyone who would like to fill their head with some words in another language.

As a game, it's not altogether fun, but it's certainly better than the alternative of trying to learn from a dictionary of random words.

I definitely recommend this for beginners. It's not full of grammar lessons or anything, but vocab. It's cool because you can discover words and memorize them by having to find them instead of typing everything out, filling in blanks, clicking a mouse. It's still clicking a mouse, but it tests your memory skill. I usually use the random vocab list option so I really have to run around. I don't really get the controls for the toy jet, but besides that, it's a cool concept. You can challenge yourself by changing the lesson settings (voice, vocab words, hints). Before this program, I used (and still use) Memrise, Duolingo, and Livemocha, but this is pretty cool compared to those less-interactive sources.

One thing though. I practiced kana way before I even knew this game existed, so it'd be a little challenging for complete beginners. I suggest using Kana Invaders (a web app similar to Galaga, but with spelling kana). Also, if you want to practice typing kana, add hiragana and katakana to your platform/device's keyboard. It sounds like a roundabout way, but I'd be lying if I encouraged others to play the Japanese version and say it's pretty easy. It wouldn't be so easy for me if I didn't know how to read it before buying it. I don't know kanji that well, which is okay because you can switch the way you can read the vocab.

The controls are a little complicated with navigation and clicking on stuff in FP, but it's fine as long as you take your time. I always play in third person to avoid giving myself a seizure from the camera sensitivity in FP. That's pretty much it.
