Black Geyser Shared Localization News

Black Geyser Shared Localization News

The developers of isometric cRPG Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness have taken to Steam to share an update regarding the game’s localization. Great news for players all around: French and Italian localizations have been started with the Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish already being underway.

Previously, the team had provided an explanation as to why some localizations have taken longer than others:

The game has more than 280,000 words of text, which is an extreme amount for an indie title. Translating this many words is usually very expensive, and takes a very long time for an affordable translator. As a small studio, GrapeOcean is adding languages that they can based on a number of possibilities, including the financial options.

“As a small team, we have been doing our best. If we had been able to postpone the release and refine the game before the launch, we would have done it. Black Geyser has been our dream project, but there are financial limitations. The question wasn’t whether there can be a “Perfect Black Geyser” or a “Black Geyser that needs refinements”, but whether Black Geyser exists or not. Based on the feedback of our community, we felt the only right decision was to stay together, release the game and then keep supporting it as we do now.”

About the game:

Explore a land plagued by war, pestilence and mysterious abductions, and uncover the hidden legacy of your birth. Recruit powerful allies to your cause; achieve your goals through sorcery, stealth, a silver tongue or brute force; and discover the truth of the Black Geyser.

Developed by a small indie team and inspired by cRPG classics like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, it features challenging real time tactical combat with pause, deep lore and memorable companions, all set in a sprawling, unique fantasy world.
