Topic: Returning the Quantum Cat

An unfinished translation of the first INSTEAD game. Download the game from http://instead-games.googlecode.com/fil … at-1.2.zip, unpack it to ~/.instead/games (or where INSTEAD installs games under Windows) and replace its original .lua files with the attached ones.

Corrections and criticism are welcome. Leave you comments here or send them to vopros(flourish)pochta.ru.

P.S.
Now, you can play it online: http://www.kongregate.com/games/zaynyat … uantum-cat

Re: Returning the Quantum Cat

Loved it! Played it on my Android phone during my holiday, which was great fun! Love the pace & jokes of the story!  lol

Been sniffing the documentation on how to create adventures with INSTEAD. Quite a challenge! (though I have programmed quite a bit in the past, so it should be do-able). It's just that I don't read or understand Russian, just plain English, German or Dutch (my native language).

But my big compliments on the interpreter, the Android port, the Quantum Cat game and the English translation!!
* RESPECT *

Yes, you can.
http://code.google.com/p/instead-games/ … nk/cat_en/

Also there is some docs in English that may help:
http://instead.syscall.ru/wiki/en/start

I guess there should be no problem porting The Cat to Japanese. Instead supports UTF-8 ok. So if the standard Instead font lack Japanese hieroglyphs, you can create your own Instead theme and include Japanese font to it.

Re: Returning the Quantum Cat

Is the english forum still working? the new one is only russian.

EDIT: Yep, it works.
Imho, this engine has a huge potential it's a pity it's not more popular outside of Russian circles, and having most of the documentation, games and community in Russian doesn't help with that.

But the games that are translated to English, like this one, show it's quite cool. Thank you!
