Title: Five magical amulets for iPhone/iPad
Post by: Mnemonic on July 19, 2011, 09:23:58 AM
Hello, I'm pleased to announce that Five magical amulets for iPhone/iPad made it through the Apple approval process and becomes the first WME game to ever reach the iOS App Store.

It's a redesigned version of Off Studio's acclaimed fairytale adventure game, with streamlined touch-friendly controls and built-in hint system (which seems to be a standard nowadays :)) The game is built using WME Lite (http://res.dead-code.org/doku.php/wmelite:start).

Great news, Mnemonic!
Thank you!
Is there was any problems in approving by Apple?

Thanks, guys!

Nope, approved on first try. It took 10 days.

Thanks to the permission of the original authors the game is now available again in english in the app store for iPhone/iPad (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/five-amulets/id1219616792), in the Android "Play Store" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.offstudio.amulets) and in the Microsoft store for Windows 10 desktop & mobile (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/five-magical-amulets/9pbtbr4d3wbw).

I hope to add a static language choser to the app and revive the czech and german version as well in the coming weeks.

German testers wanted!

I have added missing translations of the German version (mainly the in-game hints) and am now looking for testers.

If you wish to get access to the German version before release, install the app from the store of your choice and then contact me via the support email of that store. I will then add your account to the testers group, and you will receive the test version soon as update.

The german version is now available in all app stores. When the app is started for the first time, you can select english and german language now. Its a static 1-time-only setting, because the dynamic language switching resp. application of a new language to savegames is not (yet) in place.

Hello HCDaniel,
I´m really looking forward to play Czech version of Five Magical Amulets. I hope you will add this language as soon as possible. :)

I already checked what's available in czech. The game itself is complete e.g. can be played in czech, with only some inserts like "several hours later" still being english, and maybe some parts of the menu. The only relevant part that is missing are the in-game hints.

Translating the hints is not trivial, it took me quite a while for the german version. I've asked Mnemonic for help on the czech version, because I could not do the translation by myself. Although I thought about releasing the czech version with english hints, I don't really want to.

Once I have something, would you be willing to test the czech version before release?

I understand you very well. I believe Mnemonic will help you because he is wonderful  :)

Thank you very much for your offer. I have never played this game to end. Maybe somebody else can help you  :)
