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!

“Influent är ett fantastiskt sätt att lära sig nya ord. Jag älskar idén och jag älskar att spela det. Influent får 9 av 10.”

“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.

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.

Keep in mind that this aren't suppose to teach you the language, it's for increasing your vocabs

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.

BUT

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!

Ok, so this game seemed great at first glance. The whole concept of studying language while playing a videogame probably seems fantastic for every gamer like me, who also likes to broaden his knowledge everyday. However, Influent isn't what I expected it to be. I didn't do much research before buying, just a short review by someone who generally praised the game but mentioned lack of insight on japanese "kanji", which immediately put japanese pack off my to-buy list. Therefore for starters, I picked up french pack.

After a bit more than 1 hour of playtime, I can pretty much say that for me the game is a large disappointment. The whole game is situated in a small condo which contains about 400 different objects that you can interract with, and consequently learn more about them in order to improve your vocabulary. Those consist mostly out of basic household items.
In French, gender is of crucial importance, and although the game tells you which gender a certain object is, when you actually learn them, gender pronouns or indefinite articles are excluded from the actual word. For example instead of "une lampe" or "la lampe" you'll study "lampe", which means you'll still need to study gender separatly. Furthermore, the game doesn't cover one bit of grammar.

The game itself isn't particularly fun either, since one is as already mentioned, trapped inside a small condo. If the game would include also some other everyday areas like playground, trainstation, gym, school etc. it would vastly improve the vocabulary covered, but I'm afraid this will either never be available or will be purchasable as a "dlc", for which I honestly wouldn't waste a cent anymore since I don't consider the 400 foreign words to be worth of 10€, while you can learn them for free in (in a sense of content) much better covered "game" called Duolingo, or Anki.

Summary: I love the basic idea, but it lacks a lot of content. Although it is obviously considered as a supplement to your language studies, I still believe that it could've included a lot more than just bare 400 words.

So far, 30% of the words have been loan-words (katakana). The rest are alternatives to the same word; verbs, which losely apply to the nouns they're tied to; and maybe 10% are adjectives which are the only thing I can imagine being useful in everyday speech.

You're confined to a tiny apartment and although you can open cupboards and drawers you find mostly duplicate items of what's laying around. There are no ways to look out into the world beyond the apartment and nothing to offer beyond basic vocabulary that you can get for free at a site like Memrise.com

GREAT CONCEPT BUT LACKING CONTENT

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.
