Bonjour à tous,

Après un travail de finition bien plus long que prévu initialement, la version française de Blake's 7 est désormais finalisée et disponible, et la documentation est également entièrement traduite:

Blake's 7 - Version française

Merci à l'auteur Chema pour la confiance qu'il m'a témoignée et l'aide qu'il m'a apportée, ainsi qu'à DBug également pour son soutien, son aide et son implication pour la publication sur Defence Force et la réalisation du système "multilingue", la page de Blake's 7 étant désormais disponible en anglais, espagnol et français !!!

J'espère que vous aurez plaisir à jouer à cette version française !!

Laurent

Many thanks to Chema , author of the game, for his trust and his help, and to DBug too for his support, help and his commitment for the publication of this version on Defence Force and for the multilingual web page template that now makes it possible to have Blake's 7 page in English, Spanish and French!

I hope that many amongst you will be able to enjoy playing the French version!!

Cheers,

Laurent

Well it is me who should be thankful to you for taking all this titanic effort to create the French version and correct some typos in both the English and Spanish versions!

So thanks indeed!

Hey French people, remember: if you play the game, take a pic of your system running it and post it here or send it to me, please :)

Glad to hear that... Maybe I underestimate the difficulty of the first episode ?

I thought it was quite easy... and most testers thought the same too.

I think it was more to do with the event than anything else .. plus it was my first time trying to play it on a real Oric, and it was a lot more frustrating to move the cursor than I remembered from playing on Oricutron, and that might have coloured things for the other guys who tried to play after I demo'ed the basics. Gotta look at building that Oric Mouse one of these days ... ;)

Well, contrary to testers, I remember having a really tough time with Episode 1 as well !! And more generally speaking I did not find it to be an "easy" game, but then I never had much of a real talent for adventure games, I more than often had to resort to walkthroughs to finish them... Two notable exceptions on the Oric were "Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite" and "Blake(s 7" which I managed to finish all by myself :D

Well in my opinion adventure games (more over graphic adventures) have to be challenging not difficult. They also have to be interesting and fun to play and (most importantly) deliver a story where the player feels as protagonist. In any case they never have to be either frustrating or too easy and linear.

But it is very difficult to get to a balance, moreover when the hardware limits you. I guess that is why well-known creators are genius :)
