“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.”
9/10 – http://www.gameskinny.com/cv8lb/influent-a-fun-supplement-to-language-learning

“It’s that gaminess that makes Influent stand out; it’s where it separates itself from the pack, chiseling a place in any respectable study round.”

关于这款游戏

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 Patricia'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.

  • 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 Monbukagakusho 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.

正如你所见,这是一个学习语言的小游戏,不过与其说是学语言,还不如说是个背单词的游戏

适合人群
对一门语言刚入门,稍微掌握了一些语法,但词汇量还比较欠缺的人

不适合人群
对要学的语言零基础的,无耐心者,想要光靠游戏学外语的人
对了,由于游戏UI有很多语言唯独没有中文,懂一点点英语还是必要的

购买方法
只用买你所需要学习的语言即可,如果还想学习第二种语言,则可以购买相关的DLC
不需要买汉语版本,难道你还要学怎么说普通发吗!
好像是打折进包常客,不要原价买

游戏方法
就是把你扔进一个几十平的一室一厅一卫的屋子里,见到一个新物件双击即可打开单词卡,把它扔进你的生词表,等生词积累到一定数量就可以进行单词背诵(可以排序也可以随机),背诵方法就是给你生词让你选择相应的物件。每个单词大约可以滚3-4遍,都没答错的话就算掌握了这个单词。

====================================
我选的是日语,下面是我对这个游戏的一些看法:
显然,这只是一个背单词的软件,嗯,只是背单词,没有任何语法上的教学。
说实话,效果还是不差的,听到单词的时候我会先反映出物件而不是汉字,这大概是单词背诵比较好的方法吧。
有点像百词斩APP这种看词选图的意思(哎?我不是做广告
更何况这游戏是全三D的,感觉自己是在玩FPS呢!
尤其适合我这种日语入了门但还不精的渣渣。

不过不足之处自然还是很多的:
1.主要都是名词,大多数的名词还是很常见的,适合背诵。不过屋子里还是有很多神奇到我连中文都不知道该怎么念的单词,我只是觉得作为一个语言入门游戏弄这些估计N1都不会有的生僻词很有挫败感。
2.众所周知,日语里的名词对于中国人来讲非常好背。汉字名词基本靠字就能看出意义,读法也大多是音读,跟汉字类似。片假名名词就更没啥好背的了,与其说是在学日语还不如说是在学日式英语(商店页面下那篇老外学日语的英语评测笑死我了)。所以背日语里的名词其实意义不是很大,只要还是动词为主……顶多是了解一下日文里不同的说法吧。
3.动词和形容词还是有的,但数量不多(大概占所有单词的1/4),而且关联性不大。比如说“黑色”这个形容词,只有选择床框才是对的,干,房间里那么多黑色物件为什么不能选?这个问题在单词数量多了后随机背诵时问题很大,经常让人摸不着头脑这个动词/形容词到底是要让人找什么物件。
4.有的时候……并不是不认识单词,而是找不到物件,厨房里调味料放在一个抽屉里,开瓶器放在另一个抽屉里,餐巾纸又放在一个小抽屉里,哎哟这让我找个破单词简直是翻箱倒柜呀
5.随机背诵在单词数量多了后就感觉不好用了,主要是因为一些单词非常熟悉了还老是随到,大哥我知道这是笔了你别让我找了好不好.
6.飞机模式那是什么鬼,给人玩的?
7.希望成就能更多更有阶梯性,要知道,作为很枯燥的背单词游戏,不少人能玩下去的驱动力很大程度要依靠跳成就的那个瞬间,嗯,这种人绝对不是我_(:3」∠)_


人类一直都在寻找高效有趣的背单词方法,至今其实也没有找到一个完美的解决之道,这个游戏自然也是其中之一,虽然有不少问题,但毕竟这个是游戏,闲暇之余能靠游戏背背单词,不管效率高不高,至少是能学到东西的,而且还挺开心的嘛。
毕竟,叫我抱着本单词书啃这种事情还是饶了我吧。

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 .

This game is extremely unhelpful. All you do is click on random objects and the game tells you what they are. If you are serious about learning a language I would definitely not recommend this for you.

INFLUENT on PC 8/10
Tested with the Spanish DLC

The bottom line:
Learning vocabulary was a lot of fun and every student of a new language will find pleasure in this title. For intermediate students the magic in a language is learning verb conjugation and you will need to find this elsewhere.

Mechanics:
Walk around a 3D apartment and poke household objects to reveal their name. Every 10 object names form a List; repeat the List 3 times correctly and you have mastered those 10 words. Repeat until you find and master all 420 object names.

This 'game' works because You get to choose which ten words to learn next; you made the choice and this engages the mind.... It’s a bargain price for learning 420 words so quickly, don’t miss out.

100% Steam Achievements in Spanish took 14 hours; my mother tongue is English and I am fluent in French. Next week I will try Japanese and I suspect it will take much longer....

My wishlist to the devs: Find a way to create a verb conjugation module, and an advanced vocabulary module…. I would definitely buy. I think you are on to something good.
