Ukrainian localization is constantly and steadily moving forward. Another month has passed, and we were extremely proud to work hard on either secret or ordinary yet exciting projects. Furthermore, we have sorted out some of the tasks in the SBT Team itself, given both magic kicks and warm thanks, and are ready to introduce to you a brief report.
Finished Ukrainian Localization
Tales from Windy Meadow
The Ukrainian localization of interactive story Tales from Windy Meadow is almost completed, and at this moment, the text testing is ongoing. Moral Anxiety Studio promised to add the official localization in December. That means you can buy the game or add it to wish list – we will have another localized Ukrainian gaming world in the near future!
Translators: Maksym Duvanov, Oleksa Mormor, Maksym Hladkyi, Iryna Selina, Anastasiia Zhyshchynska, Bohdan Peredrii, Anna Chaika, Yevheniia Babchynetska, Oksana Ryvko.
Naval Action – the game developed by Kyiv studio GAME LABS has the official Ukrainian localization. Steam is not updated, so pay no attention to the information there, trust us and check out the screenshots.
If you are in favour of naval battles, then this one is for you. Protect your territories and conquer the new ones, build the ships and capture the ones of your enemies!
It is high time you purchased this game and supported the developers to show that Ukrainian localization is important to you.
Translated by: Pavlo Donchenko, Oleksii Ivanov, Olia Khmelnytska, Sofia Shul, Andrii Serbovets, Maksym Hladkyi, Iryna Selina, Andrii Pekar.

Poland & GIC!
Oleksii Ivanov and Olia Khmelnytska visited Poznan and Game Industry Conference. Despite the fact that the results are not that pleasant as we expected, they had a great first-hand experience at least. Read more here.
Lecture in KPI
In October, we have received a kind invitation to pay a visit to the National Technical University of Ukraine (Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute) and Tetiana Cherednycok was glad to represent our team and deliver a lecture.
Right after that, two students from KPI joined our team to get some hands-in experience in localization. Besides, as far as you remember, the students of Ternopil National Pedagogical University are trying their hands as well.
Horrors of Halloween
“What’s the noise outside, Berrimore?”
“People celebrate Halloween, sir.”
“What does it mean?”
“All Hallows’ Eve, all Saints’ Eve, or Hallowe’en.”
“And why do they look like demons and other wicked ones?”
“They believe that the demons on the Celtic New Year will take them as their own kin and will not hurt.”
“And what are the saints here for?”
“Just an excuse to get drunk, sir…”
Bohdan Peredrii has prepared a list of themed holiday games on sale by all Saints’ Eve. The event has already passed yet the time for horror fans to check out some worthy games has not – ТOP Games on Halloween’s sale.
