Lingotopia

Lingotopia is a language learning game about being lost in a city where you don't speak the language. It's available now for Windows, OSX and Linux.

In Lingotopia you play a little girl shipwrecked on the shores of a strange island. In order to get back home you'll need to explore the island and talk to its inhabitants. Sadly, no one speaks your language! You'll have to learn words one at a time to decipher what these strange creatures are saying.


 

Click on objects in the environment to have your guide teach you the word for them.


 

You can also learn words by talking to the city's inhabitants.


 

Words you know can be translated when they appear during conversations. So, the more words you learn, the more you'll begin to understand and feel at home in this strange place.


The official languages are Arabic Mandarin Chinese, French, Japanese, German, Russian and Spanish. You'll be able to learn these languages in English, or learn English in any one of the official languages. There are also many languages that have been partially translated by the community.
