Orwell launches new localizations

From: admin@orwell-systems
Subject: ATTN — RECRUITING INTERNATIONAL INVESTIGATORSInvestigators,We are constantly scouting for new recruits for the Orwell Project. But, as many of you have legitimately voiced, our surveillance effort would never be able to realize its full potential as long as it didn’t include more languages.This changes today! The Government of The Nation has spared no expense to present you official localizations of the Orwell software in

  • German
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Chinese

as well as an unofficial localization in Portuguese (Brazil), put together by some of our most loyal citizens on translate.orwell-game.com. Also, we would like to say thank you to all our citizens who have pointed out  ̶e̶r̶r̶o̶r̶s̶ minor imperfections in the Public Localization Beta, which is hereby concluded.

Additionally, the update brings tons improvements our engineers have worked on tirelessly in the recent months, such as a much demanded phone call text speed slider, a brand new  ̶h̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶e̶f̶f̶e̶c̶t̶ intrusion warning, some reworked documents, and much shorter loading times.

Please refer to the full changelog for a detailed list of improvements and additions.

As always, remain vigilant.
The Orwell Project Administration
