Thanks to Francesco Cordella and Luca Salvicchi, you can now create Quest games in Italian.
This is now live on the web version of Quest, and will be added to the next release of the desktop version.
This brings the total number of supported languages to seven:
It is great to see Quest making non-English text adventures possible – and it’s nice to see the first non-English games being published on the site. Recent additions include:
- Spanish game El secreto de las tres fuentes
- German game Bumerang Jack und das Amulett des Lebens – Teil 1 – Die Flucht
I look forward to seeing even more – as well as bringing text adventures to audiences who may not speak English, I believe this kind of game could be a great resource for teaching foreign languages too.
It would be wonderful to have even more translations – Welsh, Russian, Chinese would be very interesting additions. How do you create a translation? It’s as simple as editing a text file. The page Translating Quest on the wiki has details, and I’m happy to help with any questions you may have.
