This week we implemented not one, but two language selectors and are welcoming a lot of new players!
Now that the game itself is translated into German we are starting to work on other topics that are related to the translation and eventually will allow us to release a proper german version.
One of these topics is the ability to switch to another language. During the tests we simply used a cookie that held the language information and adjusted it manually to switch back and forth between English and German. So I started to work on a language selector. The selector should not be hidden too deep in some settings command and at the same time not too visible to not distract from the game. We opted for a new dropdown menu that replaces the logout button in the top right corner.
The new dropdown menu still shows the username and a hamburger icon, but the logout button moved into the new menu. We also moved the audio button to make some room in the top bar.
I also added a language selector for the website. The goal is that a visitor can select a language on the website and if they decide to register the whole flow should be in the selected language. There are still a few gaps in this flow, but we will fix them eventually.
If you have been watching the in-game global channel you might have seen lots and lots of "player joined" messages. These are due to a successful ad on ImKibitz's channel. Welcome aboard everyone!
