BASS Languages

Post by DaVince » Tue Nov 01, 2005 4:58 pm

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to know in what languages Beneath A Steel Sky was released, because I'm looking for a Dutch version.

Does there exist a Dutch version and if so, where to download it?

Nope, there is no Dutch version of BASS.

I'm afraid the only 'adventures' you'll find in Dutch are the Humongous games (Freddi Fish, Spy Fox, Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam, etc.) :)

Beneath a Steel Sky is available in English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

They managed to put all languages into one release file, pretty cool stuff. (why didn't LA do that? Why can't we easily switch languages in Windows?)

Funnily enough, it was also "translated" to American English. For instance, here's one scene in the original British English:
How can I get out of the City?

Have you thought about DEFECATION?

Don't you mean DEFECTION?

What? Isn't that what I SAID?

I asked you about LEAVING the City...
...not BODILY PROCESSES.

You're not making SENSE!
...and anyway, you CAN'T leave the City.
There's a RESTRICTION on travel.
The American English version, however, looks like this:
How can I get out of the City?

WHY? Aren't you HAPPY here?

I want to get back to the GAP...

Are you SERIOUS?

Oh, yes. I've seen ENOUGH of this city...
...MORE than enough.

Listen, I don't want to DEPRESS you...
...but you can't CHANGE your DESTINY...
...at least, not without official SANCTION.
