Lingwall demo now available for PC, Mac, Linux

Our playable demo of Lingwall is now available for download on PC, Mac, and Linux.

The demo showcases our unique gameplay mechanic over the course of 20 levels. You will need to learn to use your Lingwall Assistant to survive. By the end of the demo, you’ll also be well on your way to learning a new language (either French or Spanish). You’ll have learned the vocabulary and grammar necessary to form sentences in the present tense.

This is a “bare-bones” beta version with no graphics or sound. We’ll be adding both in the coming months, as well as further language lessons, many more levels, and an engaging sci-fi storyline that will see you visiting many unique locations across Mars.
