@Thighs: Thats incredibly unreasonable. "neglect" and "share" arent words that belong anywhere near this topic.
Translating and localising a game takes work. A LOT OF WORK. People doing it need to be paid, so it takes money.

@thighs you want too much.

Neglecting to share work with someone because it's not in a native language originally seems inane to me, on top of that, saying that the Failbetter staff wouldn't be able to do their own lovely work justice, or find capable people who could, is almost as bizarre.

I think this sort of a game has many fans in Germany. :-)

Each language has their own delicious words. We would love to translate Sunless Skies, but as mentioned here, there are currently no plans to do so because of the technical and resource challenges involved in localising the Failbetter voice, as well as working with our StoryNexus system. Not to mention the sheer amount of text that would need to be translated! But it is always useful for us to know which languages would be requested for any future games that aren't using StoryNexus at their core

Also to add to what nanako said, I don't think most languages have the delicious variety of words that english has. The game would lose a lot of its atmosphere, for someone to play a translated copy.

@Dark-Chummer: Failbetter has stated, and echoed by community sentiment, that the game won't be translated. There's simply far, far too much text in what is a narrative and mostly text based game. The company doesn't have the resources to translate it.

Besides, in my personal opinion, it wouldn't really work in another language. Failbetter's games are uniquely british, they revolve around a fantasized british empire. The majority of the people you meet are englishmen

Grüße Sky-Captains, nur ein kurzes Update, um eine Reihe von Fehlern zu beheben, die im letzten Patch eingeführt wurden, sowie ein paar kleinere Quick-Fixes und Inhaltsupdates zum Booten.

German language, please.
