Your feedback needed – New Chinese script

Hi everyone,

Since the launch of Yoku’s Island Express, we’ve received a small amount of feedback to suggest that some players are unhappy with parts of the Chinese localisation of the game’s script.
We’re very sorry about this and are investigating the matter internally at Team17. As a first step to improve the quality we’ve made some changes to the Chinese script and uploaded a new version of the game to separate test branch.

Access the Beta
  • Open Steam, right-click Yoku's Island Express and select Properties
  • Select Beta
  • Enter the code "yokusnotjustanybug"
  • Select [customersupport] via the drop-down menu

It would help us very much if you can play the test translation and then leave a comment here or contact us at to tell us how happy you are with the improvements made to the script. If you are generally happy with the improvements then we will add them to the public Steam and console versions of the game as soon as possible.
Thanks for playing!
