Hi all, welcome to the Localization Update (aka Build 53) of Depth of Extinction! Highlights are full translations into Spanish, German, Chinese and Japanese as well as quite a few new “quality of life” features and lots of small balancing changes and bug fixes.
This was a huge update as I had to touch every system in the game to fully localize it and the final translation size was almost 25,000 words! If you played DOE, then you know it is a very text heavy game so this won’t surprise you. I had to make a few edits to get the word count to a more reasonable size but it is very close in content to the English version.
I wanted to release this first preview early because it has a really huge feature that many of you have asked for: translations in nine different languages. I don’t have the funds to invest in translating into all the languages I would like to support, so I am hoping that the community will be able to help fix problems with specific translations over the next few months before Build 53 is considered “final.”
