“Influent är ett fantastiskt sätt att lära sig nya ord. Jag älskar idén och jag älskar att spela det. Influent får 9 av 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.”

Om detta spel

Andrew Cross är rasande!


I tre långa år satt han instängd med sitt arbete och utvecklade en enhet som han verkligen trodde var ett tekniskt genombrott när det gällde hur människor samverkar med världen runt omkring dem. En enhet som kunde scanna vilket föremål som helst i den verkliga världen och sedan tala om vad den hette på vilket språk som helst! Han kallade sin fina nya uppfinning ”SanjigenJiten” och ordnade så att han fick demonstrera enhetens fantastiska möjligheter för världens största teknikföretag Technoglobe International.


Men när han var där förälskade han sig i en flicka som han träffade i labbet och medan hon stal hans hjärta var det någon som i det tysta stal hans enhet! Nu har Technoglobe gått ut och marknadsfört SanjigenJiten som sin egen och håller till och med på att skydda det namn han så smart tänkt ut!


Men Andrew Cross har en plan. Han har gjort en ännu bättre version av SanjigenJiten och lanserat den i en online-kampanj, där han svär att han ska lära sig 300 ord på ett främmande språk för att väcka uppmärksamhet kring Technoglobes fula stöld och bevisa att hans enhet verkligen fungerar! Men fungerar verkligen SanjigenJiten? Kan Andrew verkligen klara det? Spela Influent och se!!!



”Genom att dra in spelaren i målspråket härmar Influent hur vi naturligt lär oss vårt modersmål. Jag föreslår att du ger Influent en chans.”
-Steve Hammond, Somnambulant-Gamer

Inspirerad av gamla Dreamcast-titlar (Shenmue och Toy Commander) involverar Influent spelarna i en helt interaktiv 3D-miljö där namnet på nästan varje tänkbar sak i spelet kan visas med ett enkelt klick! Faktiskt kan man få ännu mer information genom att dubbelklicka! Varje dörr, låda och skåp kan öppnas med ett högerklick här och ett högerklick där, och avslöja fler och fler saker att lära sig! Fullpackat med hundratals hörbara uttal (noggrant inspelade för spelet) ger Influent spelarna en unik möjlighet att njuta av att lära sig både vokabulär och uttal i det språk de valt.

För närvarande kan 10 språk laddas ner och Influent kombinerar glädjen i att spela datorspel med språkinlärningsprocessen, vilket resulterar i belöningar i verkliga livet och framsteg som stannar hos användarna resten av livet.

Influent: ett nytt grepp på språkinlärning.

  • Ljud från infödda talare
  • Synonymbytesfunktion
  • Lär dig i din egen takt!
  • Helt interaktiv modern lägenhet
  • Över 420 ord att samla in och lära sig
  • Innehåller substantiv, adjektiv och verb
  • 10 språk att välja bland (fler kommer snart!)


  • Hur gör jag för att köpa spelet?
Om du undrar över hur du kan köpa spelet, läs följande exempel om Mark och Patricia.

Om Mark vill lära sig latin ska han köpa ”Influent - Latina [Learn Latin]” i butiken. Om hans fru Patricia sedan vill lära sig svenska, bör Mark sedan köpa DLC-enheten som heter ”Influent DLC - Svenska [Learn Swedish]" i butiken. Det kan också göras av Patricia och fungerar på exakt samma sätt när Patricia köper det svenska grundspelet och sedan också DLC Latin till Mark, eller också till någon annan som ska använda det på samma dator.

  • Planerar ni att släppa fler språk? När???
Nya språkpaket släpps när de är klara. En fullständig lista över språk som kommer snart finns på vår officiella hemsida.

EN KORTFATTAD BAKGRUND


Influent är ett språkinlärningsspel som främst fokuserar på vokabulär och uttal. Det utvecklades först i Japan på Underhållningsdatorlaboratoriet vid Universitetet i Tsukuba med hjälp av Monbukagakusho Governments forskningsstipendium.

När forskningspengarna tog slut sköt en vansinnigt framgångsrik Kickstarter kampanj till pengar för att göra spelet klart. Ett forsknings-rapport om idéerna kring spelet och applikationerna publicerades av Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) och det kan läsas i sin helhet här.

(This review is about the German version of the game)

Numerous items in this game can be highlighted separately despite not having own words associated to them (for example parts of a light switch), numerous words are pronounced weirdly, there are multiple speakers pronouncing them and at least one of them is really bad at the language, some German nouns chosen only fit poorly, and some are flat out wrong (flowers in their pots are surrounded by "garbage"...; "bottles" become "cans"), while the 'synonyms' listed leave much to be desired.
A good few of the objects in the game are also extremely American, like extensive baseball equipment, or skateboards, and won't be seen in many of the countries whose languages the different DLCs aim to help with.
Considering how long this has been on Steam without such things being rectified, I can't assume that any of the above will be fixed in further patches.

Before the "screen" becomes a "computer", I can't quite view this as jolly.

It gets downright infuriating in the time attack tests when it asks you for a "pen", and it actually wants the "pencil", while the "pen" is viewed as wrong (bonus: only the pencil can "write", the pen can't...), or when it wants a "lamp", and the "light" is seen as a fundamentally different creature.


Edit:
By now, I've found dozens of wrongly pronounced words, as well as a bunch with wrongly assigned genders.

Influent is the best 'gamification' of vocabulary learning I have come across. I have spent over 10 hours with the Russian edition, I hesitate to call it a game so I'll say "application". Reading the negative reviews I am dissapointed with the community. You are simply a fool if you think you can just 'play' this and somehow become fluent or even remotely competent in your chosen language. Even a basic level of comprehension takes at least a year to develop with a lot of hard work involved in that year.

Influent will not teach grammar, it is simply and audio/visual application that softens the monumentual blow of learning hundreds of foreign words. Personally I have found it incredibly useful.

It works by giving you control of an avatar in a typical apartment, you can swap between third and first person to explore and click on items to have a native speaker exclaim what the items is and you're also given a textual display of the item. You can then choose to add the item to a vocab list and once you add 10 items it completes the list and allows you to come back at any point to attempt a 'Time Attack' where the items in the list are randomised, the native speaker announces what item they want you to find.

I highly recommend Influent as an AID to your language learning, not the only source.

Influent is a great pastime for all language learners out there. Be warned, though: Influent is only about words. Forget the detailed explanation and examples given by Duolingo. Influent only tells us the gender of the words, their writing and their pronunciation.

This is not necessarily a bad thing as the interaction with objects (image association) greatly helps learn all the words. The very early on unlocked "Time Attack" mode tests our knowledge by randomly picking objects we've already found. Well, random is not a must but it is best not to test our short-term memory so let Influent pick from the entire list as it sees fit! Naturally, the more words we add to our vocabulary the greater challenge it will be to remember them.

To make it harder we can hide the text and force ourselves to listen closely to the recorded audio. Adjectives and verbs are not available at the beginning; by successfully completing the challenges we earn stars - these can then be spent to unlock the related words. Note that some of the objects are tricky to find: by pressing ctrl we can look at objects in a more detailed way. For instance, looking at the bed only yields us the word bed itself but by pressing ctrl the words mattress, bed frame, pillow and cover sheet can, too, be learned. This child-parent relationship adds extra fun to the exploration. The computer on the guy's desk is another example: pressing ctrl makes the keyboard, mouse, speaker and display available.

Pros:

--- A great way to help us learn a new language or improve upon our existing knowledge.
--- Objects are many and varied: thanks to Influent I'll surely remember the word stapler in French. :)

Cons:

--- Only 420 words... the apartment is nice but we could go elsewhere. For instance, we could visit the parents at their house which would allow us to see the garden. A house also has a cellar and a loft thereby allowing us to learn more. Not to mention the added pets or other animals as in the flat we only have a cat.
--- Expensive. I find 10 euros a bit much for one language pack. Duolingo is free which lacks this image association technique with the interactive gameplay but greatly makes up for it with more topics and - most of all - grammar.

Still, Influent is a great concept and hopefully it'll be expanded upon with new words & places to visit!

Influent is possibly best vocabulary memorising game (btw, i'd rather name it - App) I've ever played. For the language learning, Duolingo is a free app with multi languages for you to choose from, to learn some languages based on your native language.

FYI: Just as what I said, Influent is designed for basic vocabulary memorising but not recommended for advanced language learners or those who keep many words in mind already.

As a college student in language teaching major, I've been told that one of the best way to learn vocabulary or to have language learners memorize it is have the words integrated with animation or with graphic presentations, which can stimulate the learners' brain and improves efficiency, leaving them with less vocabulary lethe. That's how Influent works here.

Hence if you're a starter in a language, Influent can definitely bring you tons of fun in learning it. Go get it and just get started.
