I think that the best thing to do would be to put optional subtitling, so everyone is happy! smile

I also think subtitles are very important, in game and during the videos.

A related topic is deaf gamers. See DeafGamers.com for example. When you´re working on subtitles you could extend your effort a little bit to make sure your game can be solved without audio.

Well, I'm trying to go one better with my next game - no words at all! This is proving to be an exciting challenge! Before you get too excited ... the finished product is at least 2 years away!

Hi!
I need the subtitles, too! I can't always understand the sound rolleyes so the subtitles help me. Being able to turn them off for folks who find them distracting is a good idea, too!
thanks

That sounds ideal, Alan, with the option to turn them on or off. wave

Hi Becky,

Nearer to release there'll be HEAPS of info - for the moment, suffice to say that we're very excited about it and aficionados of Peter Smith's article will be well pleased.
