Missing Translation allows you to solve puzzles and learn a language – Free


Most people when they think of #languages are always wondering, how do to #communicate? What if the other person does not understand what you are saying? Or maybe, you speak like a caveman or woman in another tongue. Who knows?

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 with some innovative ideas.

Alpixel Games are dumping us into an odd new city, where our only hope of getting out involves solving puzzles. Missing Translation has three different types of puzzles, which seem to mostly involve shifting and rotating different types of blocks in different ways, but it’s the language that really gets you.

They have come up with something more than the usual character-replacement ‘languages’ or codes we tend to see in video games. We draw patterns into a grid a bit like a phone lockscreen, combining different lines and angles and inflections to create basic sentences. Sounds delightful? Read about how it all works here.

Alpixel plan to release Missing Translation for free around Christmas. You can help it through Steam Greenlight and follow its development on the TIGSource Forums, if you choose.
