Japanese learning game
Hi everyone, I love the Japanese language, so I tried building a game to help other Japanese students. The game is about counting objects, and you run a little shop.
I would love some feedback, so if you're willing to try it, check it out here: http://mel-meow.com/nandemoya/prototipo/en.html
Thank you so much! Let me know if you have any questions =)
It's a cute little prototype although there are some language mix-ups.
"san ringo" might look obvious mas it's incorrect.
"Mas" is Portuguese (for "but") and "novo" (in the diary, it means "new").
"mérchandise" (with the accented e) is French (Just take away the accent for English).
There may be more (I don't think the settings are intended to be translated yet). I also checked out the main site and it looks like you have the programming and art skills to finish it.
Love the characters, かわいい！The game doesn't look quite complete though, with bugs lurking here and there, but I think this is the start of something great! Getting to learn Japanese while playing a game, I think this is an awesome idea! If you are looking for someone to colab with, my programming skills are top notch (did it in university), I am native English, my Japanese is somewhere between beginner and intermediate though.
Hey, I have no clue if you will see this due to th thread being made 2 months ago. But I have seen improvement greatly in the game, and I would love to help you with your game if at all possible. If you wish too, you could message me on instagram @kyrakittens81 or my twitter @Kyra_Channn. Of course this is just an offer, but I would love to help someway ^^ If you need to contant me anyway else just ket me know ^*^ Thanks ^^
Hi Kyra, I still get updates from this thread =) Happy to know you checked out the prototype again, I thought no one was still accessing it, lol, I'm working on the final adjustments to finish the first version. Added you on Instagram. Do you make illustrations? I have ideas for other games, we could talk about it if you're interested =)
I really enjoyed this, thank you for making it! I love the colours you've chosen, it's a really visually relaxing. Have some lingots! :)
The one criticism I would make is that, although I selected kana, the shop customers still spoke back to me in romaji which was disconcerting. It's an uncomfortable brain sensation to switch back and fourth. Overall I really enjoyed it, keen to keep playing! :)
