German Amiga games that you wish were released in English

Hi,

in the wake of recent threads about PC and Polish games you'd like to see on the Amiga/in English, I'd suggest a list of German titles that you hoped to see in English.

There's a big list of German-only titles for the Amiga and I've been wondering why certain bigger titles never made it to the English markets. Heck, I'd even pay to get some of these games translated.

To start off here's my list:

- Biing! (http://hol.abime.net/112)
- Christoph Kolumbus (http://hol.abime.net/4719)
- Erben Der Erde (http://hol.abime.net/2864)
- Holiday Maker (http://hol.abime.net/2986)
- Kingdoms of Germany (http://hol.abime.net/3984)
- Mag!!! http://hol.abime.net/2378
- Pizza Tycoon (http://hol.abime.net/1077)
- Stadt Der L÷wen (http://hol.abime.net/2086)
- Wet (http://hol.abime.net/3982)

Biing! is slowly a WIP, 5% done
I wonder if Wet would be as easly translatable when the PC English version is pretty common...

Erben der Erde, of course and Oldtimer.

Unfortunarelly, Inherit the Earth (aka Erben der Erde) is totally file incompatible with PC version, and there is SO MUCH text, that it is nearlly impossible to even think about the translation.

It was probably planned to be released as Motor City in English, but finally it remained unreleased.

Is this similar to Holiday Maker and Stadt der L÷wen? If so, it would make a fine addition.

I wonder if these titles are translatable as all the text seems to be part of the graphics..

Its from the same developer/publisher (Soft2000) I guess, I cant check it on hol because I dont have access there

I think they are translatable, it must be text imo, can you imagine how hard would it be to make the text as graphic?

Not yet
I dont have access from my computer. I can find all the sites with words like chick, d..e, horny, c.m but I cant go anywhere where words like game, girls, teen etc. appear. I would be more strict if I was network administrator

I work just about 100m away from where Software 2000 made 'Der Reeder' (and many other games)

Oh, that's great!

Now all we have to do is to figure out how to turn this into our advantage in translating German games into English..

Pretty much all the German only adventure games, some of them at least looks very nice.

Just realised that it's only the ECS version that has been translated into English, or is there an AGA version too? It seems that in HOL only the German Kolumbus has AGA graphics.

I was going to start a thread on German-language Amiga software that hadn't made it to the UK, then realised this one existed.

[ Show youtube player ]

Tricky Quiky looks a fun platformer that can be played without German language knowledge.

Lemon Amiga lists 456 games released in a German language edition (I'm not sure how to exclude English from the search). Are there other games that an English language audience would likely have missed?

This one:

Still don't understand why Software 2000 never made an English version. Maybe the game wasn't very successful?
