Portuguese Please


Overly Dramatic Headline!

Thanks to the hard work of a few key members of the Influent community, the Portuguese Language Pack has just been released! This is the very first language pack that was recorded remotely in its entirety and marks the beginning of a more streamlined method of adding new languages to the game, allowing the developer (me) to focus more on Influent's bright future.

You can pick up a copy of the Portuguese DLC for $4.99 USD or if you don't already own Influent, why not grab the full game packaged with any of Influent's 13 Language Packs for $9.99 USD?

Or if not, why not Zoidberg?

(\/) (°,,,°) (\/)

Update 1.8

In addition to this fancy new language pack, a number of issues have been addressed as well! Thanks to everyone on the Steam forums as well as those who contacted us through the website for reporting these issues and helping solve them along the way. Beaming good karma your way!

Nicely Formatted Update Log:
  • Set Resolution & Controls dialog now appears by default on launch (Linux only)
  • Words with shared synonyms now count as correct in Time Attack (sorry)
  • Removed definitive articles from native translations (too confusing)
  • Mandarin Chinese Language Pack fixes (small pin yin tone fixes)
  • Italian Language Pack fixes (replaced missing audio)
  • Swedish Language Pack fixes (counter/sink fix)
  • French UI Pack fixes (overlapping text bug)

What's Next?

Three Flip Studios has been hard at work developing the future of Influent while also expanding our current language library in accordance with demand from the community. A number of new language packs are on the way with a big push toward Scandinavia.

Upcoming Language Packs:
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Norwegian
  • Finnish
  • Danish

That's all for now!

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.

“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.”

Acerca de este juego

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.

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.

Para aquellos que frecuentamos los videojuegos desde chicos e incluso sin contar con una educación bilingüe, es bastante claro el significado de palabras como "continue", "insert coin" pero más que nada el doloroso "game over".
Estas primeras palabras para muchos fueron la semilla que comenzó a germinar una curiosidad por los idiomas, o por lo menos para aquella nena de 10/11 años que estaba un poco cansada de no entender qué decían sus personajes o bandas preferidas de aquel entonces.

Mi método era buscar mis canciones preferidas y con un diccionario inglés-español ir traduciendo palabra por palabra; abriendo la cabeza a lo que significaban esas letras que antes eran simplemente lindas melodías. Más adelante, los videojuegos en inglés con subtítulos me iban a servir de práctica, y muchos años después estuvo bueno no tener que preocuparme por el idioma en que venían. ¡MIRÁ MAMÁ! ¡SIN SUBTÍTULOS!

Cuando ya el inglés no fue un obstáculo para mí, admito que me quedé en el molde. No veía la necesidad de aprender otro idioma, los años fueron pasando... y es entonces cuando llega este juego a mis manos.
Influent es un juego de aprendizaje de idioma creado por Three Flip Studios que se centra primeramente en aprender vocabulario y pronunciación.

Es importante remarcar esto ya que por sus limitaciones, el título no otorga los elementos necesarios para aprender gramática o redacción de textos pero sí es muy bueno para familiarizarse con objetos, verbos y por sobre todo, pronunciación.

Estaba bastante entusiasmada por probar este juego y entré en el gran debate de qué idioma aprender. Por un lado, el mundial me había dejado un poco manija de portugués, pero por mi ascendencia italiana, me gustaría saber un poco más de los aproximadamente 5 insultos que me enseñó mi abuelo a escondidas de mamá. Pero he aquí el problema: Influent ofrece una interfaz en Inglés, Japonés, Francés, Ruso, Sueco y Alemán. NO HAY ESPAÑOL. Esto es un gran problema y me cuesta un poco entender por qué hay un idioma tan poco usado como el Sueco y no hay español. Como me siento igual de cómoda con el inglés que con el español, no fue un inconveniente para mí pero entiendo que para muchos esto puede ser la principal razón por la que no lo jueguen.

Por otro lado, hay más opciones descabelladas que terminaron con mi dilema de Portugués o Italiano bastante rápido porque bueno, no está ninguno de los dos. Influent te permite aprender: Alemán, Francés, CHINO MANDARÍN, Japonés, Sueco, Latín, BÚLGARO, Inglés, Español o COREANO. No hay signos de portugués o italiano, pero MENOS MAL que puedo aprender búlgaro.

Mi primer intento fue alemán, porque estaría bueno ver si esos nazis en el CoD o en el Wolfenstein están diciendo cosas posta o es vendida de humo, pero digamos que no me fue muy bien. En mi defensa, no es tan divertido aprender todas palabras de más de 10 letras de las cuales 1 o 2 son vocales.

Uno tiene que aprender a elegir sus batallas y me terminé decidiendo un poco con bronca por el francés, un idioma que jamás me gusto -pro tip: sáquense la bola de pelos de la boca, franchutes-.

Influent se sitúa en un departamento normal, con una habitación, un living, una cocina y un baño conteniendo una gran cantidad objetos diferentes con la posibilidad de 500 palabras para aprender. Nosotros nos movemos alrededor aprendiendo nuevas palabras (cuando estemos listos y seguros de que reconocemos un objeto apretamos la barra espaciadora) y cuando ya tengamos 10 palabras aprendidas podremos empezar a probarnos. Mediante dos modos, se nos dará una palabra ya aprendida y deberemos ubicarla en la casa. Está la opción de que se nos muestre la palabra en texto, en audio o en ambas, lo que esta bueno si queremos refinar la audición o nuestra pronunciación.

Una vez que logremos buenas calificaciones en estos desafíos, el juego va introduciendo verbos y adjetivos mas no ahonda mucho en cómo usarlos. En mi caso tuve la suerte que el francés es un idioma bastante híbrido entre el inglés y el español, por lo que no me trajo demasiadas dificultades, pero no quiero imaginarme lo difícil que puede ser empezar con chino mandarín.

En definitiva, Influent es una muy buena idea pero un poco flaca. Es entretenido si nos interesa lo que aprendemos pero luego de un tiempo vamos a sentir que el contexto nos limita mucho. Si en el futuro se agregasen otros entornos similares como puede ser un supermercado, un local de electrónica o un restaurante siento que sería mucho más útil para el usuario. Con su diseño es bastante simple, efectivo y con mucha suerte logrará ser el primer paso en el largo pero satisfactorio camino de aprender un idioma nuevo. No sé si es el juego que más nos pueda atraer a nosotros por la oferta bastante rara que tiene de idiomas, pero es innegable que me vi aprendiendo palabras nuevas de un modo bastante rápido y gratificante.

A pesar de que en el juego no se enseña nada sobre la grámatica sigue siendo muy útil a la hora de aprender el idioma deseado. No digo que al completar el juego ya podamos mudarnos a un país en el cual se hable el idioma del cual acabamos de aprender tan solo 420 palabras, pero aun así es un buen inicio para estudiar un idioma. Aunque hay algunas palabras que creo que jamás utilizaremos en nuestra vida.

Apoyo a la gente que dice que el juego debería tener más escenarios y más palabras. Sería bueno poder aprender cómo se dice "árbol" por ejemplo.

Mi madre, que es directora en un istituto de idiomas, también lo recomienda.

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.


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!

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!

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

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"

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!

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!

Only useful for learning vocab. I know that this game makes it very clear that it will only teach you vocab words, but a lot of people bought it hoping for a good way to start learning a language. No software that exists, even comprehensive ones like rosetta stone, can't teach you a language quickly or thoroughly (no matter what the commercials say). This game utilizes visual and audio cues to increase your vocabulary pretty effectively, but don't bother with it unless you already have an understanding of the language or are currently taking a class.

excellent tool to help you learn other languages, i do feel this game would benefit having more places to go instead of just the house for example going to the shop and buying items but currently it's very good and worth the money :)

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

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.

First off you must understand this is a vocabulary learning game and nothing more. If you dont have another form of learning the language this game is pretty much useless. I got this to brush up on french I had learned in high school. I paid $5 for it on sale and even at that price felt slightly disappointed. I had no idea you would be restricted to a one bedroom apartment with access to only learning 400 mundane names of household items. If this game was expanded to a small town type environment where you could go to say the store, a trainstation, etc. This game would be 5 stars, If a DLC was released with at least an equal number of new words in a new environment i would consider paying another $5 for it.

Not a bad little program for adding some basic vocabulary. I have the Spanish version, which unfortunately only caters to European Spanish, complete with the infamous lisp. Though the little quiz feature encourages you remember the vocabulary, this game could do with some more interesting, practical excercises, what we language teachers call "Drilling". Overal not bad and not expensive, but don't expect this game to make you fluent or teach you any verbs.

I absolutely love this game.

Let me start by saying that I picked this up for the German version. I've been learning German with Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, and German television shows for a few months, but wanted something that I could sit down and play when I want to change up my learning style.

This game should not be purchased if you want to learn grammar or phrases. In the German version you learn mostly vocabulary words (I say mostly because I still haven't found every word, and who knows... maybe there's something else out there).

Now, one of the most important things for learning words in a foreign language is having a memory to place with the word. A game like this provides this SIGNIFICANTLY better than a memory based card game. Why? Because you're remembering a word based on not only its graphic visualisation, but you're remembering it within the context of the home. In this game, if you have to find the "pfeffer", you not only have to remember the word for pepper, but WHERE the pepper is. It's helped me remember words extremely easily.

Don't buy this as your primary way to learn a language. Buy it as a way to help you build vocabulary alongside a few other language learning classes or programs. That's what I bought it for, and that's what it does best.

If duolingo ever releases bulgarian, I'll definitely be picking up another version of this game. I highly recommend it.

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

>"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.

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!
