MONSTER - Spanish Localization
Design Director - 2017
Osmo Monster is a game developed for the Osmo Creative Kit, in which players draw objects on a physical dry-erase board for Mo (a digital monster) to interact with. Mo requests the players (usually young kids) to draw all sort of things to play with, bring on adventures and even eat!
In 2017, I was the Design Director and Spanish specialist in the team in charge or implementing Monster's Spanish translation. This proved especially tricky since Mo's dialogue is constructed procedurally, and was originally hard coded to work in English. This posed a challenge with situations such as gendered nouns, which require more complex sentence-forming rules. We modified the system to allow Mo to construct sentences in Spanish and the product is now available to play in the Osmo Creative Kit!
