Hi.
I'm glad the German version will be released on the 10th of December. I'm really bad at German, but getting the game would be a great excuse to be better at German. big_smile
If the game is going to be released in the Danish App store, then I'll get it.

Best regards SLJ.

Thanks for your suggestions!
We like the kickstarter idea the most since we really love the transparency it provides. People should know what they pay for and I think getting the German version out to proof we have a quality game that is fun to play will really help to grow trust. In case we ask for money in before we want you to know where your money is going and that every dollar improves the quality of the game and not our living standards. An "all or nothing" kickstarter campaign would fit best to deal with this I guess. We really appreciate that some of you would donate tho!
To think that the earnings of the German version will cover the costs would be illusional, but as Lukas already said it hopefully let us continue our work and speed up the process.

We will work out a plan after the release of the German version!

Edit: Yes, Sound of Magic in German is a great idea to improve your foreign language skills wink

Man, I almost forgot about this particular project. Was just chiming in this forum after a while to see what has happened on the audio games market...
And now there is actually a release date. Great!

I happened to had the luck, honor and trust to be one of the beta testers for this game and I can tell you guys:
It will be definitely worth its price! Even the beta version was a really solid game and the developer team had been really open to feedback and suggestions for improvements. So it is gonna be a must have for everyone who likes adventure games, weird and/or funny characters or games with a good story. Because I can tell you this: this game ending had me have goose bumps all over my body.

I will definitely buy it because I want to see the finished and polished product. Hope there will be some others who feel the same and the devs will get some actual profit out of this as well.

And yes, this is an advertisement post. But not because I got payed but because I think the game deserves it.

Oh man, I really would love to play this, but, I no nothing of the German language. Lol. So I think I'll have to wait till an English version is released.

Yeah I think trailers or playthroughs in German would work just fine as an example to English speaking donators. Maybe you should send a copy to German speaking audio game players Gortholon and piotre at PG13LP.com and have them play it on stream once you have a donation link or kickstarter for them to mention.
I think Oriol Gomez at oriolgomez.com speaks German too. He doesn't really do reviews on games that I know of but you can of course ask...

Hello!
Sorry for being a Little Off-Topic, but here goes:
The game DEAD CITY is a game set in a post-apocalyptic City and you are the game character's only Connection to the outside world. This game works through a Chat window and you have to tell the char what to do (at least, that's what I gathered from the description). So, this game would be very easy to make accessible - but it isn't.
So my question/request for Everbyte would be: Can you guys please make DEAD CITY accessible?
Again, sorry for being Off-Topic here, but I was sure that Everbyte would check this Topic!

@Honk: Consider yourself as our future "Head of Advertisment", haha. Jokes aside, thanks for the lovely words, we hope we can provide you goose bumps once more in the final version!

@Sean-Terry01: Unfortunately yes, unless you get a personal language coach and start today. Theres still two weeks left to learn German!

@defender: We think so too! Thanks for pointing out names, we will look into them.

Offtopic from here:
Juliantheaudiogamer found one of our other games (DEAD CITY) in the store and requested to make it accessible.

@Juliantheaudiogamer: Thanks for your request. Unfortunately making DEAD CITY accessible would not be an easy task. We already looked into this. There are technical difficulties that will take a lot of time to solve. We're sorry but this is currently not on our roadmap. But we learned from our past mistakes and if we develop a new text adventure it would be accessible. Promised smile

Hi:

Looking forward to an English version of this game. I use iOS and we could always use more accessible RPG audiogames on that platform. Keep up the good work.

I don't speak any German, but am looking forward to a point where this game might be playable in English. Best of luck, by the way, with the release date and the flood of feedback you're apt to get when it hits. Heh.

Hi.
Today it's the 10th of December and the game should be released in German. However, I don't find the game by searching for Sound of Magic in the app store. Maybe it's called something in German instead?

Best regards SLJ.

today is the release Date and its 7:00 PM in Germany. But where is the game?

Hello! Sound of Magic is now available - at least on Android. Unfortunately we faced some problems with new Apple policies. We solved the issue and we now wait for the Apple team to review them. Might the power be with the apple support member while reviewing an audio game in a language he does not understand. I will keep you posted if we receive news smile

2018-12-10 22:15:33

Thanks for the reply. Blah Apples requirements and policies...

Hi.
Congratulations!
I just downloaded the game for IOS and launched it quickly before I need to go to work.
It sounds really great. Funny voices. big_smile
One question: The app is free to download but it have in-app purchases. The game says something about the demo version which I don't understand, because my German is very poor. How do you buy the full version of the game?
I don't see any kind of main menu. I'm in a room at the very beginning of the game where I can swipe through some choices and he tells me to choose the door, if I understand it correctly.

Best regards SLJ.

I can record it for sure. But, why? I know nothing about the game and don't speak German and understand only a few words, so what's the point of making any recordings? Sorry, I just don't get the point.

Once you completed the tutorial, you will be redirected to the menu where you can buy the fullversion.

Well, it was more like a background audio and reverb (which sounds great) than my german skills haha
I can just understand few sentences which I remember from the school but still: AMAZING masterpiece!
I have a question though: How long the game is? More or les?
