The point’n’click adventure "Ermentrud" has a first trailer! It's not final yet, please feel free to give feedback :)

Trailer: https://twitter.com/timo_inutilis/status/1411093570296164352


"Ermentrud" was originally developed between 2001 and 2004 for Amigas with a graphics card, but then abandoned. It was set in a medieval world and offered an absurd plot with absurd humor. And the hero had a cardboard horse.

It will be released this year after all, even if not in the scope planned at the time. It will contain all the original graphics, sounds and music, but the storyline will be revised.

So far only a German version is planned. It is not yet clear whether there will be other languages. The game will be available for free.

Can you localize it, so text is in a separate text file, so that other people can do translations?

(copy & paste into google translate...)

With the current engine (and to keep it compatible with the classic Amiga version) the way to go would be to translate the actual game scripts. It's also more flexible with different text lengths etc.

In any case we would need an actual translator who understands german humor. There are a lot of expressions which wouldn't make any sense with literal translations.

Your suggestion works for applications, but an adventure game is more like a book or movie to translate.

But yes, I think we will try to find someone for an english version. But not for the first release.

Is it still develpoed with INGA or did you translate it to a different engine?

I completely rewrote the Inga engine using SDL2. Here you can find the project with more info:

Sadly I think that’s best option in many cases, I have ever think there are few program can be made to work only few tiny changes,

On scale from 0 to 10 hardware dependent, many programs comes in on 2, only blitter getting in the way, or something like that.
