If anyone here understands German, there's a game from Rapaki, a Sorbian company, called Krabat und das Geheimnis des Wendenkönigs (Krabat and the Mystery of the Wend King). The characters speak in Sorbian, a Slavic minority language, and the subtitles are in German. The 1st chapter is available on the Windows 10 Store, and it's free. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/krabat-teil-1/9nblggh4wlvj?ocid=badge&rtc=1#

It's also available for free on the iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.

The full game is available for purchase here, but they only ship to cities in Germany. https://shop.sorben.com/de/spiele/verschiedenes/krabat-geheimnis-sorbenkoenigs

You can follow the game on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Krabat-a-potajnstwo-serbskeho-krala-406956792834038
You can also follow it on Twitter. https://twitter.com/rapaki12

I played through the 1st chapter on my Chromebook which came with the Google Play Store on it, and I liked it a lot. My German isn't the best, but I understood most of it. I can attempt a dialogue translation and put it on Wordpress or any free web hosting service if anyone's interested. I can add pictures or just do plain text.

Hey Ana. I have great news. I reached out to the Krabat team on Facebook, and they liked my idea. They want me to keep them updated and I can also ask them for help. I’m fired up and ready to get started.

No problem Iurii. It’s actually the second. The first one was released by the same company in 2001. I’m not sure where to find it though. https://www.rapaki.de/krabat-je-so-nawrocil/

I’m not sure about posting the translation of the 1st part on Wordpress. I’m using the free service, and I don’t know how to organize it. It’s the first time I’m using Wordpress. Here’s what I have so far. https://krabatteil1translationubersetzung.wordpress.com/2018/03/03/the-journey-begins/

I’m debating if I should try creating a walkthrough on gamefaqs.com or doing a wiki. What do you think?

Yes, Phil - I have written the authors asking if it is still possible to buy the first 2001 game somehow.

Great job on the translation so far, thanks!
But are translating just screen by screen? Maybe you could ask the authors to send you the text file - so you can send it back to them after gettind the job done, and they would put it into the game itself?

I managed to figure out how to get the Wordpress website organized. The most annoying part was wrestling with the Wordpress captions. I formatted them the way I wanted them to look using HTML code, and then Wordpress decided to format them its own way. I finally got them formatted in a way that makes us both happy. Here is what I have so far. Please tell me what you think. https://krabatteil1translationubersetzung.wordpress.com/

philthethrill10, 'August der Starke' is not 'August the Mighty', but 'August the Strong' in English.

Thanks Iurii. I fixed it. I left a message for the Krabat developers on Facebook saying that I could translate the text file if they want. Thanks for suggesting that. I never would have thought of that. I'll let you know what they say. I would like to play their first game if they make it available.

The authors replied to me that they have already made their first game available, but only as a source code...
So it requires a Java developer to play it smile

That's great news. If a Java developer is ever interested in making it an executable file, I'd be down to play it.

I have a friend who studied Java so he could create programs to help with his research. I wonder if I should ask him about making a program using the source code.

Great job, Phil!
Let's hope the authors would make some use of it smile
