Good luck for the authors and a lot of fun for all of us!


Five German language #ifGP24 games are ready to play and can be rated until May 1, 2024. Included is the German translation of The Spectators by Amanda Walker. Have fun:

The games:

  • Das Versteck des Meisters (Microsoft Windows 10+ App) by Stefan Hoffmann
  • Staub (Glulx) by IkeC
  • Der Turm des Hexenmeisters (HTML/JavaScript) by Carsten Pfeffer
  • Der Wildkatzberg (Commodore 64) by Juergen Popp
  • Die Zuschauer (Glulx) by Amanda Walker and Olaf Nowacki (translation)

I want to thank @OlafNowacki profusely for wanting to translate my game and for actually slogging through all that work and all my terrible programming to do it. Just finding a good German translation of the poem was a labor of love for him. I am so thrilled to see this game-- which is as much Olaf’s as mine now-- in the Grand Prix!
