I still would have preferred them to go with the original idea of making an rpg, though.

Not bad, but I think the last round of screen shots did look better. Anyway, this is just the engine they are building (right?). I know they are planning a game, but are these shots from the game, or just for testing the engine?

I agree it looks promising. I hope they get some help with the English localization, though.

I never understood the Germans writing games in german.
I could never write any game in Swedish, for example.
The idea would never even come before me. English is
sort of the de facto standard in the computer world -
at least to me (and I do read german, so that's not the
problem).

There are a few games that have been translated to
swedish from the english original. Swedish complete
translations (i.e. not subtitles, but actual exchange of the
text/speech) is just plain horrible for anything above small
children's games as far as I'm concerned.

Well, I suppose it's a good thing to be proud of and to use
one's language when applicable. But let's just say I'm glad we
don't have "dubbing" in Sweden. That utter destruction of movies is nothing
but an abomination. Just thinking of Arnold
Schwartzenegger in Terminator, turning to the police desk
clerk, saying (in a way off voice):

"Ich komme zurück."

("I'll be back"), makes me shiver... (and is OT too)
.

(Oh ... and yes, the screenshots do look kinda Silent hill like.
Could be interesting. )

I agree, SlimJim. My German neighbor keeps watching "Two Towers" in German on his computer...I personally think it's an abomination, and have ordered him to take a trip to the cinema and watch the version with the correct sound. Why people want to molest great movies like this is beyond me. I mean, children's cartoons is one thing, but real, high-quality movies...I think the Germans, French, Spanish, and whoever else is doing this should consider the benefits of switching to subtitling:
-Higher quality entertainment.
-Top-notch free English education for its citizens.

I remember the one attempt that was made on introducing this in Norway. It sounded and looked completely ridiculous, and it was never repeated.

When someone in a movie or series opens his mouth, I expect to hear his voice. Recording someone elses voice on top just makes the entire thing look completely wrong.

I can't say the graphics are that impressive. What is this game about, exactly? No such information on their website...

As for dubbing, well, I really think it depends... Here in France, dubbing is used for a very long time and I think it's quite good. Sometimes I even prefer the dubbed version. (in the matrix for instance).

Sometimes however the dubbed version is not that good. For instance Austin Powers sounds very bad in french ! But Married w/ Children sounds better in french, well, to me at least :) Because the voices are even more ridiculous than in the english version and really fit the characters well :)

@mahen:
Well, you're the one who has to live with it. I think it is quite awful though. Stripping away the real voices and replacing them with a translation...if I went to the movies, and they had done that, I would be asking for my money back. I prefer my world this way:
Norwegian movies have Norwegian voices.
American movies have American voices.
French movies have French voices.
Chinese movies have Chinese voices.
German movies have...er...are there German movies?

I know it's not really my problem, we don't have this in Norway, but the idea of having different people doing the moving around and doing the talking just somehow offends me. It's kind of like serving someone a gourmet dinner, and then watch them squirt ketchup all over it.
