Lingotopia 1.03 New controls and camera!

Hello everyone!

I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't realise so many people would hate Lingotopia's controls. I'd gotten so used to them in the hundreds of hours I'd spent testing the game.

In any case, I take all of your feedback to heart and have been hard at work implementing a different control scheme and less restricting camera. You'll no longer feel like a "tank".

I hope you enjoy the game more with each update! There is still more planned for Lingotopia and I won't rest until I've made up for the shoddy launch.

Thanks for reading and playing,

Tristan

Lingotopia 1.02

​Hello everyone!

Lingotopia has just been updated with some minor fixes and major changes to the way the camera works.

The camera is still a work in progress and more improvements are incoming, but you can now rotate the camera by moving the mouse to the edge of the screen and not by clicking and dragging. You can also rotate the camera while walking.

Bugfixes:
  • You may have seen the guide walk on water or jump up rocks, essentially taking illegal shortcuts to get places. This no longer happens.
  • The player no longer just stops when you walk into an object, you now "glide" off of objects in the environment.
  • Levelled Japanese audio so all characters talk at the same volume.
I will update the game again in a few days with more bugfixes, more changes to the camera and with drastic changes to the player character controls​.

Sincerely,

Tristan

About This Game



Lingotopia is a language learning game about being lost in a city where you don't speak the language. Learn Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and more! You play a little girl shipwrecked on the shores of a strange island. In order to get back home you'll need to explore the island and talk to its inhabitants. Sadly, no one speaks your language! You'll have to learn words one at a time to decipher what these strange creatures are saying.

How does it work?

  • Explore a lovingly handcrafted city.
  • Click on objects in the environment and your guide will teach you the word for them.
  • Learn words by talking to the city's inhabitants.
  • Voice recordings by native speakers teach you the correct pronunciation.
  • Learning a language with a different script? Toggle between the romanised and native script at any time.

Words you know can be translated when they appear during conversations. So, the more words you know, the more you'll begin to feel at home in this strange place. You might even be able to find a way off the island!

Will this really help me learn a language

Yes! Learning words is the most important part of language learning. You can learn several hundred words by playing Lingotopia. As the game only translates individual words and not entire sentences, you also learn word order and grammar by playing. All dialogue in the game is tied to the setting and story, so you have a reason to decipher each and every sentence.

What languages can I learn?

The official languages are Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish. You can learn English in each of these languages. There are also over 20 "unofficial languages", these don't have voice recordings and I won't be able to vouch for the accuracy of the translations.
