Having seen recently some reviews, I think this game is perfect for playing with my GF, though I fear that it would not as enjoyable for us in English as it seems to be quite language dependent.

So my question is, is there going to be a german version too?

As far as I know (from what they told me in Essen), there is no German distribution/publisher already settled on, but there are plans of finding one....so let's keep our fingers crossed for you!!

That's good to hear, thanks for letting us know. Fingers are crossed already.

Ah thanks for the information. Kinda disappointing that there is no distributor willing to publish it yet, though I hope they can find one soon.

[Publisher here]

Currently there are no concrete plans for a German version. We need to find the right partners before we go ahead on this. We have good conversations with publishers for other languages, but somehow not for German (at least not yet).

A pity, Jacob. Don't know what's wrong with all the publishers here, I certainly don't see Fog of Love as a game that wouldn't work on the german market. In fact, I think it could attract a lot of non-gamers here as well.

Finger's crossed that someone finally goes for it. There are so many sh*t games out there, it annoys the cr*p out of me that something special and unique apparently just gets no chance. angry

Why can't we try Spieleschmiede for the German version?? There are much smaller and less famous projects, which still were realised thriugh Spieleschmiede!

I am also really interested in this game, but since a german version may take a while to be published, I am tempted to buy the english one.

Therefore, I have a question for the native german speakers who have played this game:
Obviously, the text on the cards and everything is in english but did you think or talk to your partner in english, too?
Or did you have the conversations in german?

In German. I think it is really difficult to not switch to German, even if you can speak English to Foreigners without a problem. It probably led us to being more attentive to game mechanics than the story, though.

Same. We rephrase a lot of the dialogue in ways our character would say them, which almost automatically means we switch to german. And "tell" begs to speak a native tongue.

That IS good news. Was tempted to buy the bundle at ESSEN this year, but I know a game with such a strong RPG element will just work best in the language it is played in, which in my case is German. A translation (especially when the expansions will also be translated and have a fair price) will be an instant buy for me.

I hope you can soon tell us who will publish the German version and when we might expect it to be released.

We will make a German version this year to be released at Spiel.
We're still in conversation with some potential local partners, but if they don't commit we'll do it for sure.
Final decisions will be made just after Nuremberg Toy Fair.

I would really love to know whether there are any updates on the "if" and "how". Is SPIEL 2019 still a possibility?

Thanks in advance

The linked video uses the wording "zu Essen" and "für Essen". So yeah, you'll at least be able to pick up the core game.

Then I guess this is the time to ask if translations of the expansions are planned or already in the works too?
