This game has great potential. I'm not sure how I feel about the "ding" sound every time I click to move. It was cute then progressively got annoying. Maybe there could be an option to keep moving while the mouse is held down or move with the keyboard?
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Lingotopia is a language learning game that simulates the feeling of being lost in a city where you don't speak the language.
This is an early version of the game with one city district to explore, dozens of words to learn and a few characters to meet.
The game is in English and at the moment you can choose to learn any of the following languages: Chinese, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish or Swedish. Although some languages only have a few sentences translated.
If you speak a language other than English or German and would be willing to translate a sentence or two for future versions of the game, then that would be fantastic. Here's the link to the google sheets: https://goo.gl/9RNRE7
If you want to get an email when I release another version of the game, then here's the mailing list: http://eepurl.com/cv--31
Art direction for the game is by the wonderful L. Gees Aryo Herwastho, you can see more of his work here: http://www.loudviscious.com/

Lingotopia looks quite amazing. Any chance for a Linux release?
When asking the player to type a word, explicitly state you want the English word ... during my first try I lost all my hearts from typing the word to be translated instead of the English translation.
I found it useful for learning a few words! I'd love to see an expanded version
