We want to do everything we can to supply our players with the tools to enjoy the game in front of them. We have been working on localization with potential partners for the last few weeks.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that, in addition to a full German version of Myth, we will deliver a full French version. Furthermore, we will have the rulebook available in Italian and Spanish.

There are no fancy images to go with an announcement like this, but this is important to us. We want players to be able to learn the game in their native tongue. We want people to be able to play with a complete understanding of the game that we have delivered. We have bought and played many a boardgame that wasn't available in English, and understand how difficult it can be.

It would be nice if our German/French/Italian/Spanish supporters could spread the word in forum in their native tounge!

Well played MERCS,..... Well played!

Shouldn't it be Myth - Internationalized?

I mean, localized is to make it local and the game makers are already in the US using English and it's IN English already so... yeah.

Plus "internationalized" has more syllables so is obviously cooler.

I've often wondered the same thing, but apparently the context is "localized for where it's being delivered."

This is not an official response, but it was implied they couldn't find a company who they trusted to do an excellent job of it. The cards, at least, are pretty icon heavy, which should help!

Great news!
If I live in Canada and want ot get the french version, will it be possible or it's just for EU?

It's no big deal though since most of my games are in English but if for the same price I can get it in french I might consider it.

After the KS is over you will get a survey to fill out including all extra information - which add-ons you want, T-shirt sizes and which language you'd like the game in, regardless of where you live.

To make it sure:

I can pledge at kickstarter and then choose a german version?

All, including the addons, will come localized to me?

The language was the main reason i didnt support this game yet.

I don't believe the addons have been confirmed, but I don't see why they wouldn't be translated...

It was said in one of the Kickstarter MERCS replys that all addons (optional purchases etc.) are also translated. Ulisses is doing the translation btw...

And yes: after the Kickstarter is over you will confirm in a separate pledge manager what addons you want. You can also choose the translated version (or the english one) then.

I read this allready.

Full version does mean really all? Not just the basegame?

Yes. All add ons will be in German as well. Once KS ends you'll just mark on the survey that you want the German version, and the base game, stretch goals (I think just the Trickster cards?), and all add ons will be in German.

Yes. So far the only one they've not been able to fully convert is the Italian and Spanish ones at the moment. German and French have both been confirmed for complete translations. And if you want it from somebody official the OP of the thread (Brian) is one of the founders of MERCS! It's him in all the gameplay videos.
