Italian Stallion

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!

“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.”

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 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.

  • 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.

说几句:
首先作为为不算是多见的语言类或者是学习类的游戏,在发行之初我便注意到这款游戏了。
在还没有购买之前,我对于它的第一感觉就是“Scriblenauts Unlimited”,但SU毕竟是以娱乐为主,
学习为辅。不过两者总让我感觉有异曲同工之妙。

Influent目前可供学习的语言有:西班牙语、德语、法语、拉丁语、朝鲜语、英语、瑞典语、保加利亚语、中文(官话)、日语这几种语言。第一次购买本体(9.9usd)之后,可以学习你所购买的制定语言,其它的语言作为DLC购买
使用。就语言种类来说也还算丰富了,相信日后应该会有更多的语言补充。

现在说一下游戏的运行机制。简单来说,看上去就是一个多了个主人公的单词学习游戏,让你把身边常见的一些东西的表达记住。但是,不可否认游戏的出发点和理念还是很正确的。作为一个英语教育专业的学生,我从中可见语言学、心理学等等学科所体现的当今主流的学习模式。就拿一点来说,文字对人脑的刺激强度远不如图像来得强,图片也更容易为大脑所记忆。因而游戏中所展现的图文并茂记忆(Meaningful Memorising)效果会比单纯的机械记忆(Mechanical Memorising)要更加有效。而这种方法也为小学基础语言教育所使用。第二,如果懂得美国心理学家阿士尔(Dr. J.Asher)提出的TPR(Total Physical Response)的人应该会知道,人们在幼儿时期学习语言时是听说促进言语和书面表达能力的提升,当通过听说获得的信息通过量变达到质变,幼儿就能自然地运用语言表达出自己的意思了。这里虽然在Influent中并没有完全使用到TPR的方法,但是其提供了良好的听与说相结合的模式,这无疑讲会为将来更进一步的语言学习打下一个很好的基础。

当然Influent提供的学习范围还是偏向基础、局限之处还是可见,但它还是能给你学习外语带来不少的乐趣,激发你的兴趣,要是加以认真学习,定会对将来有不少好处。

This game offers a lot of opportunities to expand your vocabulary through fun challenges. If you purchased a few languages, you must select which one you want to start with first; I started with Korean and will later pick up more. Once you select the language (Korean) for example, you have the choice to also select Hangul. Once the game starts you are in an apartment, with lots of household items and the learning begins.

As you move around (Limited interaction with the items) you can select items and learn the name in the language you purchased. There you can see the English translation, pronunciation, image, spelling, noun and verb versions of the word. Once you have found a few words you are comfortable with you can start adding them to your list, you can then play these challenges like "time attack" which test you in your ability to locate the items; either they are said to you, you read them without assistance of pronunciation of the software meanwhile you are being "tested" in speed/accuracy.

There is a lot more this game has to offer through these challenges and I recommend getting comfortable with a few set of words before adding more to your list. There is no rush and after each challenge you get a percentage but no penalization for failing. There is also a "To do list" which makes it easier for you to know what challenges you need to complete and they are not meant to be done in any particular order.

Overall I have played this game for only a few hours and am enjoying it. It is a relaxed, straightforward, fun way to learn a set of words in a new language. The price is good and the only thing I would want added is the chance to explore more areas (more locations) this would allow me to expand on my vocabulary besides household items.

Next Phase of Influent?
An added software in conjunction with this one; Once we have the words learned take us to the next "Learning phase" Learning how to use them in a sentence, this would help us with the ability to actually use the words and have a conversation. The price is good for what this game offers. An added sweet bonus would be steam trading cards even though it is educational software.

Final thoughts
It is not meant to teach you a whole new language but help you expand on your vocabulary. It does make the learning process of learning new vocabulary fun and I would recommend this game. Will be adding screenshots soon!

This review is for the espanol DLC.

If you are looking to compliment your study by expanding vocabulary on common house hold items this game is for you!

If you were looking to learn spanish to hit on sexy MAMA sitas and fine ♥♥♥ cholas like I was.
Sadly this game is NOT for you.

It would be great if they could add lessons for phrases instead of just single words.

For example how would you say this in spanish.
"my love for you is like diarrhea i just can't hold it in"

Okay, time to make history.

Note: This review is for Japaneese version of the game

My first contact with Influend was weird. I was like "oh, another learning game, probably not interesting". though I tried it anyway and it turned out to be something better than "just a learning game". First of all - it is not boring. It even has a plot, you know. You are an independent inventor whose prototype machine named Senjun...dammit, the name of that prototype is too hard to write. So yeah, in order to prove it he wants to learn 300 words in one of the languages. You can buy the game with one language and then buy the rest of languages as cheaper DLCs - I like the idea.

Let's get to the real action. You are in your flat, filled with 420 (blaze it) things. Basically the goal is to walk around and interact with things to see their name. It's a good system in my opinion, since when you look at the thing you know what it is and you get the name in the other language. But not only that, you can also get synonyms and adjectives for some of those too (and in case of Japaneese - how the things I written. I felt good with romaji)! You can see that hard work was put into that, because there's also a native speaker saying the word out loud too! Anyway, after getting to know names of stuff int he room you can try Time Attack mode - it's all about "mastering the words" and choosing the right things. After you master 50 words - SURPRISE, YOU CAN FLY AROUND THE ROOM AND SHOOT STUFF WITH LAZERS! So it's not only learning after all.

Now, a few words about graphics - game doesn't look bad, I like its art style. It is kinda like in comics, so that's a plus. Some of the texutes are less detailed, but that's only things that you can do much with. And they're usually placed in some corners and places normal human doesn't usually visit (unless he's a nerdy RPG player that has to visit every corner).

Other stuff - you will probably spend more time looking at numerous references that are hidden withing the game. I really liked book on the table. Get the game (it's not that expensive, especially when you see the amount of content and educational value of it. Really, educational games can be damn good and this one is the example of it) and see it.

BUT - every rose has its thorns. It took me some time to get used to controls. You can switch in this game between TPP and FPP modes, but when in FPP zooming in has to be with mouse wheel instead of good ol' FPS right-click (it is assigned for different function). Apart from getting to know controls, rest is good. Even tutorial (you can skip it and get to know controls by yourself - not suggested).

To sum up, I loved that game since 10 minutes after launching it. And I actually learned that pillow in japaneese is "makura".And yeah, this thing is definitely worth getting.

Rating: 9+/10 - grab it, grab it while it's hot!

I love this game. Its so much fun. I currently have the Russian DLC I've always loved the russian language and culture. Ever since i first heard a russian speak i wanted to speak it too. And this game can make that possible. As i played my first hour or so into the game i already Mastered about 100 words. So this game maybe short if i start forgetting things. Worth the price. If anyone wanted help starting a new language and have fun this is the game for you. 10/10

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!
