“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
  • 15 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.

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 .

An okay tool with several drawbacks

Having years of university training and real-life experience in teaching not only foreign language but also second language acquisition classes, I can say that Influent can work well as an additional teaching tool to the ones learners already have, provided the players know what they’re doing and are aware that Influent is not actually teaching them how to speak the target language; It merely trains them in recognizing words from that language. Given that, Influent is fairly okay at achieving what it’s supposed to do and I can see it helping certain learner types, although at the same time, it is likely to be just a waste of money to a lot of people, especially as there are products out there that are much better at helping people learn foreign languages. The major drawback being that Influent does not teach grammitcal articles (grammatical gender) for European languages. More about that further down.

Primary Issues of the software

Influent (2016) was developed by the US American game designer Rob Howland and published with the help of his alma mater, the University of Tsukuba (筑波大学), and Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (文部科学省【MEXT / 文科省】). Sadly, despite the academic support behind this project, its issues are clearly visible right away and it is very obvious that Howland does not have a linguistic background. The protagonist in the game simply translates nouns or adjective-adverbs from English into the target language and it is limited to objects inside the virtual apartment.

To highlight what I mean, we can briefly look at the impressively handy, elaborate, yet slim Langenscheidt’s picture dictionaries, which contain words, transliterations, pictures (and if you own the TING pen even audio clips of proper pronunciation) of local foods, instruments, sports, holidays, animals, tools, jobs, lab & hospital equipment, body parts, family members, ethnic groups in the target culture, climate zones, and so on and so on and it even includes the necessary vocabulary for any occasion reaching from birthdays to funerals or visits to the barber shop or the postal office. And it is merely twice the price of Influent's base game despite offering that much more. Not only that, the roughly 300 page book can even be brought with you, so if you don’t know a word, you can show it to people.

Influent on the other hand is limited to objects inside the virtual apartment (as can be seen on the store page’s screenshots) and the vocabulary is very narrow, albeit very useful. It can even be argued that one could simply use a normal dictionary and a language tandem to probably achieve equivalent if not superior results.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=603282417

Gameplay mechanics

The player can move the protagonist around a virtual apartment, click on objects, listen to how they’re pronounced and look at how they’re spelled in the target script or how they’re transliterated into Romaji, Romaja, or Hànyǔ Pīnyīn (depending on the language pack). Additionally, the player can create vocabulary lists and make his / her own quizzes. The game will then show and say a term and the player will have to click on the correct item in the room. You can pretty much achieve the same effect by pasting post-its around your actual apartment and by having a smartphone dictionary app pronounce certain terms for you, in case you forget how to say them.

You could say that doing that in the game would be less work for you, but writing down new vocabulary, having to use / activate different areas of your brain (to write it down and to read the word) leaves a much bigger, better imprint of the target word in your memory than merely reading it and having the computer program pronounce it for you.

Critique and conclusion

There are multiple issues when it comes to Influent, first of all, there are products out on the market that are much better than Influent and cost about the same, so I suggest going out to bookstores and checking them out before buying this. Of course it's definitely possible that they don't have any better alternatives in your area, in which case Influent might be good. Secondly, when learning a language, you usually learn four basic fields: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking. Influent can only provide the two “passive” skills, reading and listening, you still need a training partner or a formal education to learn (or at the very least have someone correct) the writing and speaking parts. If you cannot find a partner in your area, there are multiple online forums and websites that focus on connecting people for specifically that purpose alone. Influent will also not teach you anything about sentence structures, tenses, clauses or (in-)formal language, in fact, it will not teach you anything beyond the available vocabulary.

When it comes to European languages with grammatical gender, Influent will also not provide you with the necessary grammatical articles (Der, Die, Das in German, for example). Let's say you click on the bed, Influent will merely play an audio clip saying "Bett" while showing the correct spelling, but it won't say "Das Bett", which would definitely have been the better choice. Grammatical gender is essential for many European languages, ommiting that means that learners will lack crucial communication skills.

I can see Influent work as something you use besides the learning tools you already have (like school- and exercise books as well as audio tapes or movies), especially when trying to learn gender neutral languages, but it definitely isn’t enough to learn a language with. I like the digital / game approach to learning languages, however the execution isn’t perfected yet and still needs some work.

It's OK to get a little bit into a language but it is not very clever in the way it teaches you words.

- It will only teach you either the singular or the plural form, which means you have to look up the words anyway.
- The nice lady will only tell you the word to click on, but not its gender, which is kind of a shame in a language that has grammatical emphasis on gender.
- Verbs also just come in the infinitive form which again, depending on the language you want to learn, isn't exactly useful.
- A lot of the words are either so basic that you don't actually need specific software to pick them up.
- The interface is a bit clunky and it can be kind of frustrating to rearrange the lists. Also, if you misclick you have to do a time attack with the whole list that you put the word in again and again to “master” it, which can cause mild annoyance.

AFAIK there are only new language packs planned but not actual expansions that add some more words/areas

I wish I could post a review with "maybe". But since I have to choose, I'll choose "no'.

I got so excited to see a sleek-looking language game on sale that I proceeded to purchase it without looking more closely at the reviews. Being somewhat of a language nerd, I must say I was disappointed.

First of all, the title, with its cute and clever pun, is pretty much misleading. This is just a (limited) vocabulary game. Nothing "fluent" about learning a language here.

This game's approach to learning a foreign language comes down to pointing at objects and listening to how they are called. Then you can play some games, such as looking for specific objects around the apartment as fast as you can. It seems like most of the effort was put into the graphics and other aspects of the gameplay. There is no method or theory behind the language learning. Did they do the game in collaboration with a specialist? I highly doubt so. I know this game was Kickstarted, but it's wrong to make a language game if you're only a game developer and then hint at "fluency" when you try to come up with the title. Learning a language is a process which requires the application of various methods, some of which the developers should have explored, in my opinion. For all I care, the game could be 2D and less shiny and pretty, but with more meaningful and diverse activities.

Yes, this game has its good sides, it looks pretty and it teaches you words in a logical context. It can help you expand your vocabulary a little. But that's it. The language lover in me will want to finish it and master all the vocabulary, but I expected more.
