Why there is no Polish language version?
Just curious.
Company that made it didn't agree?

I'm assuming that you are asking why they haven't released a Polish language pack. I can understand that you are curious about it (curiosity is a good thing!).

The thing is my friend... It's very expensive to create language packs for games. Firstly, the developer has to translate the text. This is relatively inexpensive in comparison to the voice-overs. For every character, in game, some kind of voice actor has to be hired. In most cases these actors get to play many different characters. However, every actor needs to get payed and be somewhat fluent in the respective language to play the parts correct. Additionally, there has to be an editor who understands the language aswell, whom probably wants some kind of payment for his/her service.

This is why developers, regardless of size, have to choose and target larger langauge groups such as English, German, Spanish or Chinese (there are of course many bigger and smaller groups, these are just the most common examples).

I can't answer exactly why they haven't made a Polish version of the game(I don't work for them nor have I played the game yet), but this would be my guess.

Hello.
The game already has a fully dubbed and translated Polish version of the game, that's why i am curious why it's not on steam. ;)
Oh! Did not know that! well in that case I have to agree with your "curiousness" hehe. very strange indeed!

And i'm courious why some freakin' France and Italian, where propably no one heard of this game, have translations, and Poland and Russia - ones of the countries with biggest community havent even subtitles?
