Some AI tools have been instrumental in creating art, designing game environments, scripting, and writing engaging dialogue, making the development process more efficient and innovative.

Q: What is WonderLang's release date?

A: The release date is not yet set. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, I will be able to focus on the game for a few months, and I believe a release in August or September 2024 is possible for the first wave of languages, for PC and macOS. The Android version and the next wave of languages should follow a couple of months after, with the 3rd and 4th waves a couple of months after that. The more successful the Kickstarter campaign, the faster the release will be, because I'll be able to hire external help.

Q: What languages are available as target language (the language you want to learn) and base language (the language you currently speak)?

A:WonderLang's initial launch will feature versions in French, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese for English speakers, as well as English, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese for French speakers. The game's design allows for easy integration of new languages. German and Italian will follow a few months after the initial release, then Korean and finally Japanese. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful enough (meaning the corresponding stretch goals are reached), this schedule will be accelerated.
