What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to show the main features of our game to the community and hear their feedback and thoughts on Trancelation. We would very much appreciate the opinions of gamers that have previously played language learning games, but we also want to hear from those who are taking their first steps in this genre. We believe that it's very valuable to gather such feedback and pretty much essential to deliver a product interesting for its audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Six months, subject to a slight change (~1 month).”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The main difference is the amount of content, mechanics and language packs offered in Trancelation. We’ve uploaded some vocabulary lists, so players can try them out as soon as they open the game. The full version will include more gameplay features, arenas, and vocabulary lists on release day.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In its current state, Trancelation features all Game Modes with seven fully playable arenas and plenty of language packs. Players can also upload and play their own vocabulary lists. The game is stable with no game-breaking errors. The visuals and animations are pretty close to how they will finally look, with slight adjustments and optimizations planned before the full release. Please refer to the About This Game section. All features are available in the Early Access version.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will be the same during the Early Access period and might change after Early Access has finished.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are going to interact with each and everyone who will share their feedback here on Steam's community page and take it into consideration. We will also be posting frequent “dev diaries” in the game's Announcements section and in our Steam developer group.”

About This Game

Trancelation is a neon arcade game filled with linguistics and electronic music. It’s about translating sets of words in a futuristic world of fractals and vibrant sounds. You control The Spark and your main objective is to navigate through an ever-changing environment full of enemies and obstacles. Watch out – they’ll strip you of your life and put end to your journey in an instant! Use buffs, such as bombs, shields or extra life, and collect points for every correct word association!


A classic arcade video game that will definitely test your agility and dashing skills. Navigating 'The Spark' can be a real challenge when you’re unsure of a word’s meaning or when your enemies are closing in and there are walls in your way. You only have a limited number of lives, so be extra careful and think twice before taking a risk! And if you don't want to learn languages, no problem! Trancelation features an Arcade Mode where you don’t pair any words. Only pure agile skills count!


Trancelation is designed to boost your memory skills and help you to memorize words. Word repetition isn’t just some boring chore that requires a lot of motivation any more – it's an enjoyable experience, so you want to play it every day just for fun! Trancelation features fast-paced gameplay and an engaging atmosphere that puts our brains into high gear and eventually boosts our language skills. It also teaches you to recall translations quickly – a crucial skill in real-world language usage.


Learn any language you like! Trancelation allows you to easily import your own vocabulary lists, even those from the most popular language learning apps. You’re also free to share them with the community and use lists other people have created! As the community grows, you’ll have access to more difficult and complex sets and the gameplay will become much more demanding.


• A one of a kind mix of classic arcade game and language learning platform

• Fast-paced, engaging gameplay set in a neon, fractal world
• Word association challenges to boost your linguistic skills
• Challenges designed to help you recall foreign words immediately
• A soundtrack that mixes the best of the electronic and trance genres
• An energetic atmosphere drowned in neon esthetics
• The possibility to create your own vocabulary lists and share them with others – infinite amounts of new content!
