November 17, 2008– Independent studio Codeminion Codeminion releases six fully localized language versions of their flagship puzzler– Ancient Quest of Saqqarah, acclaimed by the casual game reviewers as one of the best games in the match-3 genre. The game is now available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Polish languages.
The localization was conducted by Artifex Consultants and all versions are fully featured with all the voiced parts being re-recorded from scratch.“Good voice acting is crucial in Saqqarah for building the atmosphere and guiding the player through the game. We knew we have to re-record all the voices from scratch for the translation, if we want the players to fully experience the game.”– explains Konrad Olesiewicz, game producer and Codeminion co-owner.
Codeminion says they have review copies available for any non-English outlets that would be interested in writing about the game.“We would like to reach people who were previously unable to play Saqqarah because of the language barrier. We would definitely be interested in casual-oriented websites that could present our games to a new audience”.
Ancient Quest of Saqqarah is a large and highly successful casual puzzle game, described by GameZebo as“benchmark against which to score all future competition”. It features over 500 levels spread across 7 different puzzle mechanics, with production values rarely seen in the casual games market. An expansion‘SaqPack’, doubling the amount of game’s levels, is already available on the developer’s website at the price of $10.
Saqqarah is the second downloadable game by Codeminion available in multiple language versions. The first one was StoneLoops!– a dynamic marble popper released in localized versions on July 1, 2008. Both games are available from the Codeminion website on a try-before-you-buy basis, at the price of $19.95.
