Finally, winter has ended and it is time to summarize our progress.
Frankly speaking, February was not much of a productive month, but nevertheless we have something to tell you about.
First of all we want to tell you about the arcade game Summer Catchers by FaceIT. SBT Localization team members helped to proofread Ukrainian localization of the game in February. We hope that Ukrainian players will enjoy this game about a little girl’s journey to the sunny South. Looking forward to release.
The translation of interactive story Tales from Windy Meadow reached 15% (2% proofread). The most active members who worked on this project were Bohdan Peredrii and Maksym Duvanov.
The localization of royal RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance is reaching its middle and has 47% progress of localization. The most active members who worked on this project were Oleksandra Kutsan, Iryna Makovska, and Vasyl Nabochenko.
Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition had less attention paid to last month and its progress increased only by 0.6%. The most hard-working translators on this project were Bohdan Peredrii and Tetiana Khvastova.
The Banner Saga also had little progress (2%) in localization in February. We hope that next month will be more productive. Meanwhile we thank Yurii Bisyk, Yura Dragon, Andrii Serbovets and Oksana Bukanova for their contribution into this project.
Other interesting things
We are still working on the translation of Outsider comics by Jim Frencis. Look for new pages about Alexander Jardin’s space adventures on our website.
We had three SBT streams in February.
Yura Dragon fought against monstrosities in Metro: 2033 Redux. Once alone and once in the company of Oleksandr Lukianov.
Yanis Verminko together with Sofia Shul were wandering around Mongolian steppe in Cradle.
SBT Localization team members sent to our patrons funny brand stickers and mugs.
Do you remember that strange mug with an unusual handle?
It appeared to be not a mug at all, but an exclusive tea glass holder!
Yevhen Tkach made it and sent it to Vata TV as a present from SBT Localization team!
We thank Vata TV team again for support and wish success and inspiration!
PlayUA on Twitch initiated the community of Ukrainian streamers. Of course, we could not resist such a temptation and joined this community. Finding Ukrainian streamers became much easier! Visit Twitch and search for Ukrainian Streamers, watch streams and subscribe to interesting channels.
Also we invite you to support this claim about Ubisoft regional policy.
And the last but not the least. We were presented a ticket to Lviv Game Dev Conference 2019, which will take place on March, 29th. If you are planning to visit this event we will be glad to meet you there!
SBT got a lot of mail from candidates, who were eager to join us thanks to video on Vata TV Youtube channel. Unfortunately, only best of them coped with test with flying colours.
Welcome Tetiana Khvastova and wish her success and inspiration!
