Hello. I'm currently developing a sci-fi game for PC and mobile with an original universe, lore, and cast of alien races. I'm a big fan of immersive storytelling and complex alien cultures, yadayadayda, so I thought it would be fun to create a unique language for one of my alien species. I figured that it's a pretty nerdy thing to do, so I thought I'd put it up here so anyone interested can check it out.
This is a sample of the written language in its native form. There is a Romanized writing as well, (think Romanji in Japanese) but I'll get to that later.
The four lines in the image from top to bottom read:
You are a warrior. (Et seto kartake)
I am not happy. (Ke-ko seto taret)
We need to be warriors and fight. (Ket taretov-setov kartake ret kasetov)
Are you angry? (Res-et takeret?)
Now that's all fine and dandy, but it's meaningless without a key. Fortunately, I planned out the Rosetta stone of sorts from the beginning.
This language has 17 letters. Romanized, they are Ka, Ke, K, R, S, E, Et, Ta, O, Ov, Od, Da, Ze, Fa, Dru, Ge, and Ho.
And, here is the key!
Of course, these symbols and their respective sounds are meaningless without a dictionary being created to give them meaning. I've already made quite a few words in this language. Here's a fun idea, if you are interested, why not make some new words for this language? If I like any of them, I'll put them in the game.
Oh, one last cool thing I forgot to mention. In the first image there where I have those 4 sentences; that is a screen from in-game. I created an engine that converts the romanized language to symbols! In the game, if your character does not know the language, you have to decode the specie's messages yourself. This isn't required of course, but I think it could give the game a lot of personality and decoding the messages may lead you to some secrets!
So, that's the end of that. Thanks for taking a look! (By the way, I have like 0 bars of wi-fi so this took forever to write)
