The client sent us the game’s text in Russian, and we translated it into English and then Polish. One of the requirements was to try to avoid abbreviations, especially when the meaning of a sentence would become less obvious as a result. If a text did not fit in the space provided for it on the screen, Overmobile’s game designer would help us find another solution. The client also asked us to use appropriate language for a game with an age rating of 12+. We were also hired to test the Polish version of the game.
- Age rating of 12+
- The client provided us with images of all the pets and a build of the game
- No abbreviations
