Anyone have any knowledge of whether there will ever be an English translation of the game Phobos: 1953 from the creators of Outcry???

Phobos 1953 had a projected 2011 UK release. I could find no confirmed publisher or NA release date for Phobos 1953. Outcry was published by The Adventure Company.

I wonder why it is so difficult to get these Russian games to market in the Western world.

The difficulty at this time seems to be that the NA publishers who were publishing these games went out of business.

It's in pre-order on Amazon.de in German... maybe we could expect an English version too in the future?

I hope we can get an English version soon. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time.

We'll keep our fingers crossed!!!
After Outcry I do want to play that game so much that if it shouldn't be released in English I'll play it in German. I studied German and I forgot it because I didn't practice it any more, but it is better than Russian (I love the sound, but I can't understand it at all).

If things should take a turn for the worst with an English version I promise to send the translation I'll have to do for myself. I'm only upset on how to use it if the game weren't linear enough...

I wish I understood German considering how many games have been released without an English release. If worst comes to worst a copy of your translation would be wonderful struzzo Smile

May I please take you up on this offer if that happens, Struzzo? I've been wanting to get Phobos 1953 ever since around 2009.

Thank you so much for offering to translate for these of us English-speaking/reading Pointers, Struzzo.

EDIT - here's what I believe might be a clue as to when its' coming out.

Clue 2


Clue 1

Check the topic that says "Phobos 1953"

I looked at your clues AlienBZ, thanks! I followed that forum since long, but Phantomery Interactive has gone out of business too... sigh!
Anyway if there should be only a German release you'll be welcome, just as anyone who'd wish to share my translation Smile

So do we English speakers have to buy Phobos from that German Amazon in order to get ourselves a copy of the game in case 1) we have to wait forever for an English release, 2) an English release never happens, or 3) both of these happen?

Ok, say we English speakers have to buy it from the German Amazon, well is this when your translation into English will kick in, Struzzo?

Phobos on German Amazon - Translated to English

I tested the page that I translated into English by signing in, it let me sign in ok, then I made it search for phobos 1953, which it did, but it won't let me on the phobos 1953 page after being signed in, yet it'll let me on this page if I'm not signed in - I wonder why? Is this b/c the game is only a pre-order or what?

ABZ
no. 1 Phobos was released some time ago in Russia
no. 2 UIG Entertainment the German publisher will release Phobos 1953 around April 30th
no. 3 It is not known at this time if they have translated it to English or if they will
no. 4 You can not buy games from Amazon /Germany
no. 5 It is entirely possible being a Russia game that it will never see an English release

Ok, i'm assuming that this would be around April 30 2012, right?

So when UIG Entertainment releases the game, who will be able to buy it and where will they be able to buy it?

Will this make it possible for us English-speakers to buy the game and since Struzzo offered to translate it for us, then we'll be able to play it, right?

Yes UIG Entertainment planned to release Phobos 1953 around April 30, 2012. At this time it is only known to have a release in Germany. Since UIG has made no other announcement it is not known whether they have worldwide distribution rights or if they only have rights to distribute in Germany. At this time when UIG releases only people in Germany ( and possibly selected European countries ) will be able to buy the game.

As I've said before it sometimes takes years to get the Russian games translated and distributed to English speaking countries.

My attempt of translation will be at disposal of everyone who'll ask for it of course, but it won't come so soon (actually I'd hope it won't need to come at all )

German version of Phobos 1953 will be released at the end of this month, but I'm not going to purchase it immediately, because I still hope that an English version will come... translating from German is going to be very hard for me! affraid Anyway, if there's not other chance I'll do it.
I think I'll wait until summer to have more news.
I wrote a mail to UIG entertainment to ask if an English localization were previewed, and when I'll have a reply - if I'll have it - I'll let you know immediately.

We'll keep our fingers crossed and wait. Wink

struzzo yes translating Phobos from German to English would be a long and difficult job. Translating anything to English is difficult. If it comes down to you doing a translation I applaud your efforts.

I too hope UIG does an English translation. I also contacted UIG last summer but have not had a reply. I hope they send you a reply. I'm thinking that if they are planning to distribute in Europe the game might already have English voice over. (one could hope annway)

If worst does come to worst it is very kind of you to offer to help us get a copy of Phobos 1953, thank you.

Were you ever able to get Rhem 1 ?

Let's wait and see for Phobos! I'm still optimistic about an English version Smile

You couldn't believe my story about Rhem 1, it was an Odyssey! I wrote to everyone that could have it or have had it on sale throughout the world. A friend went to Berlin and I asked him to look for it, but it was sold out even there.
After a long time I got a mail from Games4Mac, a store in a little town near Rome: Rhem had been reprinted and they asked if I was still searching for it... WOW! I couldn't believe to my eyes! You know hatshepsut, I still keep the envelope that contained it. It was the 30th of January 2006 Very Happy

Yes let's stay optimistic about Phobos. UIG is a worldwide distributer for many games so there is hope. Smile I know they translate alot of Russian action games to English and distribute them here.

I am so glad that you did get Rhem 1. It does indeed sound like it was an odessey of searching and waiting. I went through the same thing not to long ago with Lost Horizon. I had given up hope of finding my own copy then after a very long time I got an email from Interact saying they had obtained a copy and it was on it's way to me. I was very happy so I can imagine how very very happy you were to get your copy of rhem 1 Very Happy

Yay!! Does this mean that the game will be released in the English speaking countries including the US and UK Amazons? Might both the US and UK amazons get the games at the same time (I hope so)?

Yesss Alien BZ!
It wouldn't make sense translating a game in English only for UK, so it will be on sale in USA as well!
It's only a matter of time; I'll keep you updated!

April 30 2012 is the release date for the German version.

For the details on the English version we have to wait for the press release. The only thing I know is that it will be within 2012.
