“Missing Translation is a pixel art puzzle adventure about an abductee who must complete a series of puzzles to earn the items required to get home”
7/10 – Pocket Gamer

“Traditionally, adventure games are supposed to give players a clear understanding of the plot by using a clear language. But what if one of the player’s goals in such a game was also to decrypt a secret language, where only then they could really understand what was going on? This is the premise of Missing Translation, a puzzle adventure game made by the Spanish studio AlPixel Games.”
Indie Game Magazine

“Missing Translation plans to teach its own language that’s far simpler, a visual language based on drawing lines across a nine-node grid. That’s not the main focus of the game – it’s a puzzler at heart – but if we want to, hey, we’ll get to converse with the locals in our strange new home.”

Key Features

  • No tutorials, hints or even text to be found here. This wasn't made to increase difficulty but to let the player do everything on his own, "Missing Translation" isn't a hard game, but we don't like hand-holding.

  • REPEAT, NO TEXT. Everyone can enjoy it regardless of the language they speak :D

  • Three different puzzle mechanics, each of those features 25 levels to complete.

  • Beautiful black and white pixel art... ... did I already say we have cats?

  • Two different characters to choose from.

  • Additional challenges involving a drawn language that can be learned up to some point.

  • Great soundtrack that has evolved with the rest of the game over development.

  • FREE! No ads, cash shop or any of those modern things.
