Hi guys !

okay ummm, i know this is some kind of ridiculous thread. 

English is not my native language but i'm still tryng to making my game for this contest. well will i get a disqualification for that ? because i know my game later will got some mix english and broken grammar :\

I had friend who know english more than me, but this month were little bit busy for school exam. so i made this project anyway. for sure people who will test the game later may understand with the story. my point for this contest are just showing my project story, gameplay and other feature, i'm actually wanna make a Exel files for the conversation text and place the file to the game folder and the community can give some help, but because it's just a one month project i think i won't do that until the contest ends.

will i get disqualification for broken english ?

Hi there,
You can use google translate, I am also using it.

Don't care about it, it's important that we can create a game.

agreed XD

If you have English speaking friends and are expecting a lot of words in your game, it might be helpful to talk with them.  If there is minimal dialogue, probably wouldn't detract from the game.

thats the problem XD my game is a visual novel games

That might be tougher.  I think people might still play the game and depending on how confusing it gets, will depend if they continue  You can also put a nonenglish version and maybe some users would understand that version better.

yep, just in case i put two language for the moment XD

My suggestion is hunt down someone who is a native speaker to play through your game. If it is really bad, it probably won't fair well compared to other entries, but if it is coherent and not terribly noticeable I don't think it will make that much difference in the grand scheme of things.

I have the same problem. It's not so easy to find a native speaker who is willing to do so in such a short time ...

haha yeah when i told my friend the contest will only takes about one month he say "Oh no" XD

maybe i will make short conversation game next contest XD i just joining the contest so i wont leave my project and go to other project
