Bone localizations?
 
Hello Telltaler's :)

I have a question which is a burning issue to a lot of gamers here in Germany and maybe elsewhere, too. Are you planning on offering localized versions of the Bone games in the future? And if so, will it only be added subtitles or full dubbing of the characters? Thanks!

They'll be an annoucement very soon regarding localization! Remember, anything you buy today will be upgradable for free with any "improvements" we make (such as compatability, localization, etc...)

If you localize your game, choose a localization strategy in the trend of DotT : original voices and very well translated subtitles... or, at least, allow the player to choose any combination of voice language/Subtitle language. Please, there are so many games ruined by bad or so-so localization...

Can I have English subtitles that were translated into Japanese and then translated back into English again? Those are hilarious.

I have a German copy of DOTT, strangely enough. You say it's a good localization? I was going to give it to Dave Grossman but maybe I should keep it for myself. (Except I don't speak German...)

I can only guarantee the quality of the French localization of DotT.

I've been bothering Telltale with this localization problem for MONTHS. Feedback e-mail should be jammed by my hints at Italian localization companies. :P

Whoohoo, I'm off to spread the great news! And the possibility to upgrade already purchased games is a very thoughtful idea! :)

Why don't you try and learn German with the help of your DOTT copy, Emily? :D
At least German DOTT fans would understand what you're saying when you talk to them... :crazy: ;)

She hasn't yet played it in English, so playing through it in German might not help much :shifty:
