If you ever had interest in how to make a game go viral all around the world, you’ll surely have read articles in sites for videogame developers like Gamasutra or Gamesauce, and it’s always the same thing: the key is to not only translate the game, but localize it. This obviously, is easier said than done, and eventually it’s one of two things: it’s either too expensive to do it properly or you just don’t do it the right way.
Some communities of players like Russians do not like when games reach their markets google-translated, or with ridiculous pricing like simple exchange-rate prices without rounding to more familiar local numbers. As a result, they refuse to play these games.
Since spending a huge amount of money and hiring an expensive localization studio is not an option for DragonJam Studios (remember the indie thing?), they came up with a good idea.
Why don’t they look for players among their early adopters who take care of these duties?
It matches their core idea of a game made for and by players, and this way they guarantee that they’ve got people in their team who really care and that’s because they’re players too.
DragonJam don’t want you to think badly of them, they announce a fair deal for both sides, with incomes based on a percentage.
Country Managers this way come
What’s a Country manager to do? Well, basically he’ll take care of the community he’s in charge of: Attend to mails and provide local support in its own language (we all are able to communicate in English, but when trouble come, you do appreciate someone speaking your mother tongue on the other side of the line), promote tournaments and ensure that every player receives their real life prizes when winning, check out there are not any language translation issues, moderate forums, and above all….give us players’ feedback and ideas to include them into the game.
They’ve made some contacts already, but still have many Country Manager positions available. So if you think that your profile matches these requirements and REALLY feel like doing it, come on! Drop them a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
