How much language dependence the game has, and which language it will be at Essen? english or german? are there a spanish publisher interested in publishing Olympus?

I don't know if it will be better wait a little but I'm very interested in this game.

The cards representing what you may build in your city-state are crucial to the game and have text on them (not much, but still needing a grasp of the language; example here).

The Essen edition will be in English and Italian.

I know the (Italian) publisher is looking for foreign partners. I don't know if (or how well) its research is going. In any case, such editions will be out in the next year (it's too late for Essen by now).
We'll try to keep you informed about any good news (I'd be as glad as you to hear them).

Thanks for your interest in the game!

UPDATE: the Essen edition will have the box with blurb in both English and Italian, it will contain the rulebooks in both languages, but the cards will be only in English (while the local - for us Italians - edition will similarly have box and rules in both languages but cards just in Italian).

Contacts with foreign partners for editions in other languages (that will NOT be able to be printed in time for Essen, in any case) are still underway.

Andrea and our Italian publisher are there (and had scheduled contacts with a few foreign publishers)... I think we'll get updated news when they return (i.e. in a few days).

Good news, because i was in Essen and i looked a little at the game. The game i think is really good but there was too much text on the cards (not for me but for my usual players).

Please let us now in a few days (next week) as you said

It should be published in the coming months (I don't know if there is an "official" date already... for now let's say a generic "summer 2011").

I've sent him a link to this thread. He is a tad busy nowadays, but surely he'll answer as soon as he reads it and has a spare minute.

Should be released by Edge Entertainment.

As far as I know, this summer the game should be released in FR-ENG-DEU maybe even SPA edition.

But game designers, like husbands, are often the very last to know... :-|

For what I know, it is still all as written above ("Summer" starting June 21 and ending about 3 months later, you know... ).

ok thanks, the problem is that 3 months to translate and produce the game is too short no ?
