Wishlist "A Place for the Unwilling" on Steam

Hi!

It's been a while since we released "Missing Translation" on Steam, it's on the way to being four years old.

Lots of things have happened in the way but, thanks to that small free game made on our spare time, we established AlPixel Games as a studio and started working on a bigger project, focusing full-time on it.



That game is "A Place for the Unwilling", an open world narrative adventure where time never stops and every decision counts. Set in a dying city inspired by Dickens and Lovecraft.

You only have 21 days until in this living city dies. The clock is ticking. You can’t be everywhere at once. Decide what to explore, who to meet and see every decision shape the curious stories and terrible secrets of this branching narrative game.

Hope you like how that sounds. Please, go check it out and don't forget to wishlist it! That helps a lot.

Thank you all for playing our games!

“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

  • 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.
