It's okay, I'm not here for making scenes. Just next time think twice before getting carried away, that's all :)

(Split from this thread. -Snarky)

Yes, it was a wonderful ceremony, but... there's something I feel I need to tell you.

You probably don't know me, I'm not a huge part of the community and I joined the forums only a couple of months ago. Well, the thing is, as a lesbian myself, I felt that yesterday's 'jokes' about lesbians were just... yeah, wrong. My friend AprilSkies told me it was all based on Eternally Us. I thought it over and, well, it still didn't make much sense to me.

Let me explain myself: would you ever consider making jokes about Jews just because "The Shivah" has been released? Did you make jokes about black people when The Journey Down was released? Would you keep saying things like "We want more Jews!", or "We want more ni**er!" during the ceremony? It was offensive because yesterday you didn't make jokes about all the other adventures released in, say, 2010. You just picked this one and kept hiding behind the excuse "Oh, we're just joking about Eternally Us, keep calm dude".

What's even worse, you put on screen images of stereotypical lesbians. Actually, they weren't even lesbians: they were just straight girls making out for the sake of male audience. Again, it's like you put on screen someone with a big fake nose who's supposed to be playing the Jew, or someone with his skin dyed black who's supposed to be playing some kind of Bwana.

It all made me very sad. We all know how the videogame world is still mostly made by men for men's sake. We all read of women developers being insulted on Steam just because of their gender. Yesterday I felt like there's still no place for women, let alone lesbians, in this narrow-minded world of yours.

This said, congrats to all the winners.

Great plot, the Vague idea is very interesting. Puzzles were ok, but I feel the need to say I hated the arcade part. Probably it's just me, but I couldn't get done with it even when I had the chance to lower its difficulty. I love adventure games, I love solving puzzles and arcade games have nothing to do with the AG world. It all turned out to be frustrating.

Hi everybody,

I’m a native Italian speaker and I’m currently working for RuM Corp.(se) Localisation Pro, a team I’ve made up together with my girlfriend. We both are native Italian speakers and hold a degree in English Translation. We’ve already worked with Team Effigy and Skygoblin, for the Italian Localization of The Marionette and The Journey Down Chapter One. Moreover, we’ve recently completed the English Localization (supported by a native English speaker proofreader, Ross Kevin Moffat, who is on this forum as well) of ApeMarina’s Donald Dowell and the ghost of Barker Manor. As for English to Italian projects, we localize, proofread and proofgame, no need to ask for additional help. We also take note of every path and dialogue tree of the game, so that every sentence is fully contextualized.   

So yes, basically we localize games from English to Italian. We are looking for commercial projects to work on. Since we have just started our business, our fees are low and definitely negotiable. Just tell us your budget and we’ll talk it out and find a way to adjust to it.

You can check out our projects at the following links:

The Marionette – http://themarionette.teameffigy.com/italiano/

Donald Dowell and the ghost of Barker Manor – http://www.freankexpo.net/500/donald-dowell-eng

Unfortunately, The Journey Down Chapter One has not been released yet. However, we have a recommendation letter from Theo Warn and you can easily get in touch with him.

We also translate and publish novels from English to Italian, but that’s another story.
