Get your lingo skills ready! Trancelation, a unique neon arcade game about translating words to the rhythm of electronic music, is right around the corner as it arrives on Early Access later this month!
Trancelation is an arcade game set in a world of fractals, filled with electronic music and neon-esque atmosphere. It is designed to improve our language skills and help memorize new words. Dynamic, constantly changing environments require players to focus and carefuly asses words, that pop up on the screen. While navigating through each level, they need to watch out for enemies and closing in walls!
First announced during PGA in 2017, Trancelation received a very good feedback from the players, not only avid students of linguistics. Their first impression was that it doesn’t look like a language learning game, more like a well-designed and engaging arcade.
„I came up with the idea to create Trancelation as I was struggling to find a good language learning game. Of course there is a number of language apps, but none of them offer a fun video game experience and since I am a devoted gamer – I wanted to address that by creating one myself.” – says Piotr Korgul, a lead developer behind Trancelation.
Due to polished gameplay mechanics, the game is very much targeting fans of other, fast-paced ‘bullet hell’ games, aiming at pure fun experience. For them, developers prepared an ‘Arcade’ mode, in which there are no word-associated tasks, just pure, skill-related gameplay – still full of different types of enemies and power ups.
The game will be available on Early Access October 17th, with most of the features already implemented in the current version. MythicOwl is looking to build on the feedback provided by its community and realease the full game around Q1 2019. Meanwhile, feel free to add it to your Wishlists on Steam.
