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/

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?

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.

Thanks for the tip, I've changed that and will upload a new build with the change soon

I found it useful for learning a few words! I'd love to see an expanded version

Yay! I'm working on it. I'll release new demos like this every few months. Each time with a few more words to learn. Thanks for playing!
