Localising

Finished the game, but need the script and characters redesigned, or rewritten for release in the English speaking world? Andrew's localised a wide range of projects to date.

Can't sell your game because the publisher's reviewer slated the text? It's time to call in a professional.

"In localising the UK/US version of Singles:Flirt Up Your Life, Andrew's new take on the characters, story and dialogue gave us something that grabbed the reviewers' attention and made the title stand out from the crowd. The result was an interactive soap opera full of comedy and drama which gave the game a unique edge for the UK market."
