On localisation, visual novels, and other cool stuff (Digitally Uploaded 2017, Episode #16)

April 25, 2017

We can't stop talking about Person 5, it seems. This past week, there's been a lot of criticism over the game's localisation, so the DDNet team decided to discuss that this week, and more generally how localisation should work, versus how people think it does.

We also have a good chat about visual novels; what we love about them, what makes for a good VN, and whether hybrid VNs (which have "gameplay bits" in between the reading) are the better way to go.

Thanks as always for listening in, and hope you enjoy the podcast!
