    Question I'm just wondering... (Japanese games)

    How do y'all English speakers play all these Japanese room escape games? Am I just the only one here who isn't multilingual?

    Hello there Nick. Well, me personally I just click, click and click. That always works for me.
    No, seriosly, I don't play that much games as I used to, but when I happen to occur a japanese game, I try clicking randomly.

    If everyone is diffrent wouldn't that mean everyone is the same but if we are all diffrent then how can we be the same?

    When it comes to the Gaming it is certain kind of instinct that work for the gamers, they do try and try hard to understand what the instructions are or try to find a translater for that.

    Do you mean a human translator or like an online Internet translator?

    I think he means an online translator, or if you have friends that speak japanese that is great. My Father in-law speaks japanese very well, unfortunately he is soon to be my ex-father-in-law....

    The escape games all follow the same sort-of format. There is an items area, which you can usually click on individual items to find other items/hints. The basic Idea is the same, find the hidden objects to escape!

    And my friends HeartoftheDark and Hitman got it down.... just click,click,click...everywhere

    Yeah, I know the format is the same basic thing. But if it's not in English, a lot of times I can't tell what an object is. Also, the games often give verbal hints, so that makes the Japanese harder. I'm one of those verbal learners, so I find it hard to figure things out without having words to help me.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. But when I don't what a particular object is, I just try to describe it the best I can (shape, color, size, looks like a .., etc.). When there is really a language barrier, this is usually mentioned in the lead post of the game's thread. In that case you just hope someone with knowledge of the language will translate the hints you need to get out. In htlm games you usually can copy and paste the foreign text in a online translator.
