Only a small update today, to keep you in the loop about the progress of the translation. I know that we are taking our time with the Resurrection translation, but I hope that the wait will be worth it in the end. We are working as much as our scarce free time allows.
So here’s where we are: The goal of finishing the actual translation before the end of January was not met, though we now only have a few texts left to be translated – specifically from the final game location. Proofreading continues, and to accelerate it, we have recruited a new proofreader Benjamin Tyrer, whom I’d like to hereby welcome to our team.
So there isn’t much new to report for now, but that will hopefully change in the near future.
The year 2015 is slowly but surely coming to its end, and I’m sorry to say that it's clear now that we won’t be able to finish the English version of Resurrection before the end of the year. Even though we’re working as hard as our respective schedules allow, by the end of the year, or latest by the end of January, we will only have finished the actual translation. Afterwards, we’ll still need a bit more time to finish the proofreading and testing. This makes the new estimated release period the first quarter of 2016.
The proofreading has been progressing at a steady pace for some time now. We have checked and corrected all the texts from Albuquerque, the largest city in the game, and are also almost done proofreading Corath. Some proofreaders unfortunately no longer have time for Resurrection, and so in order to keep proofreading from falling too far behind the actual translation, we’ve recruited a new team member – a proofreader who goes by the nickname Resido.
On behalf of the whole Resurrection team I wish you happy holidays. I’ll see you again next year with more news about the translation.
I officially welcome Blodcyning, the third proofreader in our team, who's already for several weeks been working on the proofreading of Albuquerque's texts. In addition, he's now also prepared a short video from the game for you.
We have had a game sample here on our website before of a Resurrection quest in the form of screenshots with descriptions, but it was from a work in progress version of the game prior to release, and the English text was just temporary, so it didn't match the final form and quality of Resurrection. Since then a lot has been changed. So we've pulled it out from our website, and instead we have prepared an up to date demonstration from another quest for you, this time in the form of video. In it Blodcyning will show you a side quest from Corath and how it can be solved through three different ways, so you can see what you can expect from Resurrection. Link to the video here.
