It’s time for round 2 of Bit Summit in beautiful Kyoto, Japan and this time around I’ll even have a booth! I’ll be showing off Influent just ahead of the big Steam Release so if you happen to be in town, come on by and say hi! There are sure to be plenty of other amazing games on display so definitely don’t miss it!
See that TV? That’s a functional animated texture playing Influent’s past Kickstarter video! I’ve been going through and adding polish wherever I can and this is definitely one of my favorites. I had to program it to pause the in-game music when it plays as it sounded awful without doing that.
In other news, the Korean language pack is complete! I’ll be releasing it along with two other highly anticipated language packs just in time for the big Steam release! On top of Steam, Influent will also be coming to the Humble Store and IndieGameStand all at the same time! WOWZA!!!
Ba Ba Dum is a fantastic website with a few fun mini-games dedicated to language learning. The site offers a slew of languages to choose from including Japanese! I really dig the art style as well. Check it out if you’re keen and maybe even challenge yourself to a game or two!
