There isn’t an English retail box and it doesn’t look like there ever will be one. But since the German retail box uses Steamworks you get all the languages avaible on Steam. The means German & English voice over and French & Italian with subtitles.

That’s very sad to hear. But what do you mean I get other languages? I can get the boxed game in German, and I’ll still get to play it in English? Even though the English audio+text files do not physically exist on the game DVD??

Schneckchen says it’s fake, you say it’s real. So who are we to believe?
I’d like to think Daedalic wouldn’t stoop to this blah level, but what do I know…

You can believe me, I just tried it and it’s true Smile And it probably also exists in the German edition, I think Schneckchen ^.^ just tried using the puppet head without filling it with magnesium first - it’ll work only with magnesium inside the puppet head.

Sorry to bump an old topic, but I got this yesterday with the Daedelic on Steam and already I would go as far as to say that it is one of the best Adventure Games I have ever played. Really back to basics but at the same time rich and up to date. Love it. The graphic style is incredible.

I got my copy from http://www.gog.com when they had it on special. Have not started playing it yet, but I am curious how The Dark Eye plays as an adventure game.

It’s quite linear but I enjoy the narrative a lot. As things progressed I think the writing has a bit to be desired though.

There is a point for example where your guardian is found with his eyes pecked out and body slashed up. He then dies as you speak to him. You’d think with Geron being an orphan and all and this guardian of his being the closest man to him, that he would be a little more upset than he is to see him perish. Geron gets over it all in about 5 seconds flat.

Also kind of annoying that you can fit a whole door in your pocket. Just seems silly.

Otherwise, still really, really enjoying this great game.

Also, it has one of the most hilarious easter eggs of any AG.

That game was legit good and had the best ending in ages. It’s actually quite rare for AG narratives to have good third acts let alone endings.

I’m this close to giving up on the game. I thought I could force myself to finish it, but it bores me so much, the story, the characters, everything is so uninteresting (I can’t even bring myself to hate Nuri) that I don’t think I’ll manage to get back to it.

After The Whispered World and now that, I’m never going anywhere near a Daedalic game again.

I hate Whispered World and I still liked Satinav a lot. The ending is worth going to.

Idk if you played A New Beginning but I liked that a lot too. YMMV.

I’m probably the only one but I enjoyed The Whispered World too.

If Steam will ever decide to work again I’m going to try A New Beginning next.

Hello to everyone here. I’m new in this community. I hope you have a happy new year.

I’m translating this game to Spanish (Castillian), the game deserves it. I have a trouble, so i ask for your help.

This game has different versions. The one from Steam (various laguages). The GoG version (only english). I don’t know if the other “only english” versions are the same as GoG’s.

I’m doing the translation over the Steam version. All works perfectly, the translation is almost 60% finished. The final version will be “unchained” very soon.

The problem is in GoG’s version.

One of the files needed for the translation (data.vis) is different from Steam’s one. The Steam’s one can be unpacked and repacked without any trouble. But the GoG’s fails.

The game seems to miss some assets (black sprites in Geron & NPCs).

I don’t know if this is related to “unpack&repack;” process, or a savegame problem; if i start New Game from Gog’s version, all works perfectly. This is where i ask for help.

¿Can someone give some GoG’s version savegames? On advanced game.

I will apreciate it. It will help me a lot if it’s a savegame problem.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Linotype,

Ahem… You’re not doing the translation for Daedalic, are you?

Still… they might be able (and willing) to help you with your request.

Try support(at)daedalic.de or info(at)daedalic.de and see what comes of it.

(I am pretty sure I COULD help you myself - I translated the original German into English for them - but I’m also quite positive that I shouldn’t. As far as I know there is a standing cooperation with someone translating into Spanish and that might be a work in process this very moment).

Hi ADan,

First: I’m doing a fan translation. It’s not supported by Daedalic.

I’m not a professional translator, and this is my fisrt translation. I’m doing that because the game deserves it. I love that game.

Some months ago, i contacted some Deadalic staff (via their forums). They stated interest on a spanish fan translation.

But the legal owner for spanish distribution was Deep Silver. So, first i needed to ask for permission to DS. With DS permission, the Daedalic staff daedalic would have provided the necessary files (as they did for your translation, i guess).

But i never got permission from DS. So, i need to extract files and repack them. The main problem is there’s many different game’s distributions.

—-

Thanks for your comments. Really, they helped me. Maybe i will contact again to Daedalic staff… who knows. Either way, i will finish the translation.

BTW… Good job. I enjoyed your translation.

Well, I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t get the go ahead from Deep Silver.

I’m all the more sorry that you might be treading on illegal grounds at the moment.

I personally appreciate fan-involvement (and a complete translation of a game is A LOT Of WORK i.e involvement) but I really can’t help. But maybe the folks at Daedalic really would like to and even will. They’re generally really cool, albeit overworked so they might not be able to answer right away. Patience and persistence (both of which you already seem to possess in abundance) might do the trick.

Good luck and thanks for the compliment.

Buenas noches, Dan.

I meant I’m the only one who likes both Satinav and TWW.

Ah that’s a shame. I have the final cut on Steam ready to install. I’ll see how I get on with it. What was it you didn’t like?

Isn’t it a sad world we live in where something as great (and to be honest, as trivial) as a video game can get someone into trouble for simply investing their time and efforts into translating it into another language for other people to enjoy.
