FAQ:

  • Should I use the Save or Suggest button?
    Please use Save in 99% of cases, use Suggest only if you are not sure of your translation.
  • Should I translate words in {}?
    No, they will be replaced by the game, so “Plan day {day}” will become “Plan day 1”.
  • Should I translate alien names?
    Please contact other translators – we want to keep it sound natural for every language, so for some languages, we translate it and for some others, it stays in the original English form.

Huawei Innovation Contest results

Hello Survivors!

As we announced, we had the chance to take part in Huawei’s Innovation Contest. We promised great rewards for the community’s help if the game gets a Grand Prize. The contest ended last week, and we were sure about winning, but, sadly, the judges chose other games instead. Blackout Age got an Honorable Mention award. Although we didn’t receive the Grand Prize, we still want to thank you all for helping us becoming Top 3 in the community voting. Instead of 10,000 batteries, we will give away 1,500 batteries to players who helped us achieve this goal!
