Taj Mahold on a second!

I thought the release of Influent's 18th Language Pack was going to be Dutch! Hindi is totally cool and all but what gives?? And while we're at it, what's the deal with all these language pack updates!? When are we actually gonna see some real content with more words and places to explore??

-said everyone together in unison

Content Conundrum

We hear you! And when I say we, I mean me and spooky. We feel the same way about Influent in regard to more content and we'll be making a forum post to address the unique challenges facing Influent. Understand that we are self-published and our core team consists of one programmer (me) and one web designer (spooky). This project is absolutely massive in scale and big environments require big resources. But more on that in the forums. Back to Hindi!

Hindi Breakdown

Hindi is now available on both Steam and the Humble Store for existing players as DLC for $4.99 USD. New players can pick up a copy of the base game packaged together with Hindi or any of the other currently available Language Packs for $9.99 USD.

Dutch Crunch

Dutch has been delayed due to a recording malfunction in which over a hundred audio pronunciation files were mysteriously lost at the recording studio. Therefore, the release of the Dutch language pack is on hold until we can arrange for another recording session to take place. More updates to follow and thanks to everyone for your patience.

We look forward to discussing the future of Influent with those within our community who have taken an interest in our game and its further development. Until then!

अलविदा!

Danish Debut



SEE THE OFFICIAL BLOG POST HERE

Scandinavian Success!

The release of Influent's 17th Language Pack marks the completion of all languages in the Scandinavian region! Well unless you count Iceland. Sorry Iceland! You're still really cool! No pun intended!

Danish is now available on both Steam and the Humble Store for existing players as DLC for $4.99 USD. New players can pick up a copy of the base game packaged together with Danish or any of the other currently available Language Packs for $9.99 USD.

Stay tuned for more languages coming soon. Next up, Dutch!

Held og lykke!

“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.”
4/5 – http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2014/05/28/review-influent/86161/

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
  • 15+ 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.

I am a language teacher and was given a free copy by the developers to review.

It is great as a platform for vocabulary acquisition but you are not going to learn a new language just by exploring somebody's apartment! I would prefer it if the developers focused on expanding the game world rather than adding more and more languages...

I will give this a thumbs up as it helped me learn quite a few French words in a short space of time. I learnt no grammar and very little I could use when speaking to people. As I said great as a 'vocabulary learning game' but not really the 'language learning game' the developers promote it as.

Influent is a language learning game in which you wander around a 3D, cartoony rendering of a small flat, identifying everything you see in a foreign language. The spatial aspect of the game is interesting and does help you remember nouns, and the timed trials to find a list of objects is pretty good as a challenge. However, the way adjectives and verbs are handled is... interesting. They're assigned to related nouns, in a way that spans from obviously good to downright confusing. I think maybe with a lot of practice this system might make a bit more sense but I never got there.

The real killer for this as an educational application is that there is not nearly enough content. 300 words is not even remotely near enough - XKCD's famous Up Goer Five uses the top 1000 words, and you need about 3000 words to be able to put vaguely sane sounding sentences together. I can get that this isn't a full language learning application (there's no grammar at all) and that's fine. But considering all this does is teach you vocabulary, despite its other strengths, this game just doesn't teach you enough vocabulary to be useful. So despite the endearing art style, the slick Dustforce-esque soundtrack and the cool concept, this game needs an order of magnitude more content to be anywhere near worth its asking price (£7 last I checked). And remember, that's *just* for vocabulary. To pick an example to contrast, Duolingo does grammar, idiomatic usage, full text translation, pronunciation guidance *and* a much wider range of vocab, on a portable platform, for free. If you're intereseted in educational games, maybe have a look at this for an example of a slick product that partially succeeds, with ideas worth considering. But if you're actually trying to learn a language, this does far too little of just a narrow slice of what you need to be of significant use.

So where's the game? I mean, you've got some word association minigames but what about the story? What do you actually do in this game? Good for learning the names of household items but not much actually happening, no character interactions or conversations to demonstrate the language, only one location, no story to accompany the learning process. Honestly you're probably better off with google translate.

It IS handy for learning common vocabulary but you won't be learning a language by only using this. I would personally suggest using this for gaining a broader supply of words but using the free website Duolingo at https://www.duolingo.com/ for actually learning the technical parts, like forming sentences and such stuff. Using both of these is a good way to start learning languages.

A great way to expand your vocabulary arsenal.
you will learn tons of new words, mostly everyday items.
super effective way to learn, you will acquire new words pretty fast.

看到这“游戏”(或许是教学软件吧)上市后我就弄了一份。这软件的中文语音相当不错了,感觉还带了点京腔= =德语语音也还是不错的(我只听了我认识词的语音)。开发商搞出这么个娱乐的游戏(软件),我们应该大力支持才对。


总之。这东西不错。推荐!

这是一款学习语言为主题的游戏,通过点击探索主角房间里的物品能够把单词记录到单词表里,然后在测试游戏中掌握单词。看上去是背单词的好办法,但是实际上按照我的经验背单词的最后方式还是结合场景和对话背句子。比如我玩的日语,光一个单词完全没有办法掌握单词在不同环境中的具体变化,真的用来对话的话总不能够一个个单词往外蹦吧?我背和苹果,也背了相对应的形容词好吃的,但是我想说:这个苹果很好吃.....还是不会说。

更致命的是,游戏中同一物体的名词-形容词-动词对应有点问题。比如说衬衫对应的动词是穿,这还好。但是书对应的形容词是有趣的,天花板对应的形容词是高的,电脑对应的形容词是富有知识的,我觉得这相当牵强。如果是感动(名词)-令人感动的-感动(动词)这样的不同词性的结合记忆是好办法,但是为什么测试里读了一个富有知识的我就必须去点电脑?为什么读了一个储存我就必须去点对应的名词是箱子,点存钱罐就是错误?这样的结合记忆法我觉得全无意义,而且很别扭。

不管怎么说,这款游戏,但是建议大家玩玩就好,不必真的希望玩这个游戏能学到语言。

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作为steam上第一款语言学习游戏,看点还是很多的
优点:
1.图物结合是个记忆单词的好方法,图片确实能提高对单词的掌握
2.场景很得当,选取的单词是生活中比较常用的,很有用
3.n.adj.v.相搭配很合理,在理解一个名词的同时可以了解和它相关的形容词和动词,很有创意
4.支持的语言很多,看得出作者在很用心的去做,目测今后将支持20多种语言(DLC爱好者的福音)
缺点:
1.发音。其实发音还可以啦,但作为语言学习游戏,有错误还是算是瑕疵。我买了德语法语日语,后两者因为不会,暂不作评论(感觉日语女声蛮萌的),德语来说前后有5 6个单词与我学过的不一样,不知道是方言原因还是什么,我向开发者反映了,目前还没回应=。=
2.成就。这算是许多人很关心的方面,最后一个420个单词的成就确实很伤脑筋,我大概在400个左右时就已经枯竭了。比如说水龙头可以打开,按ctrl可以看到儿童用词,可以说最后20个单词花了我一半的时间,这个不算很贴心
3.坑爹的飞机。没搞懂那个飞机打单词是干嘛,有些物品很小,点起来真蛋碎,比如说Bleistift。而且那小飞机速度好快,还能让人愉快地打吗?

在我看来,如果真的是想去学一门语言,拿这个做开胃菜不太适合。相比较之下Rosetta Stone是最好的选择,可以人机对话,有更丰富的场景,当然了,价格也更贵。Influent适合在入门后加强对日常单词的积累。但我很佩服开发商,在为steam带来第一款语言学习游戏的同时,还能保持不断的更新,看网站介绍今后还会增加更多的小语种,例如粤语,所以必须各种赞!
建议打折全买,支持这类游戏是很有意义的。

最后,来个总评吧
