Thanks to you, we've hit the top 100!
Release date: 2017
Koe (声) is a JRPG which introduces you to the Japanese language through traditional gameplay elements found in classic and modern Japanese role-playing games.

Begin your journey as a high school exchange student ready to take on their senior year in the small Japanese town of Sakuracho. Use your words to fight and progress your way through the story, and save Koe and Sakuracho with the mysterious princess Fleur who has nowhere else to turn to. Your time in the real world will be spent learning new words, phrases and basic grammar rules. All of this will become your power in the fantasy world of Koe, where you'll need to save and fight alongside your friends to uncover the mysteries of a broken kingdom, a falling empire and the volatile crystals.

By combining communicative language learning theory and game design, Koe makes language the weapon, armour and magic you need to use in and out of battle. Every phonetic Japanese character or 'Kana' has its own levels, power and usability, you'll need to remember and use the words you've learned to attack, defend, and heal your team to save the world.

@BobbyD, this system exists in our codebase, it needs a little more polish before we release the modding tools, and we'll probably need to do a few quality of life updates to it once it is released. As it stands, the tools rely too heavily on external libraries, and this will need to change.

Is there still support in this game for adding your own words to the game?

We'll be updating (and releasing all future alphas through) this page in June. Backers- this means this will be our primary distribution platform and you'll need to come here to download the game instead of our website as we've done in the past.
