Session Name: Behind the Curtains of BUZZ! The Multi-Million Seller of SCEE Franchise
Speaker(s): Sophie Krauss, Fabio Ravetto, Vanessa Wood
Company Name(s): Relentless Software, Binari Sonori, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe
Track / Format: Localization Summit
Overview: BUZZ! is one of the most successful casual game franchises of the world. Since its launch in 2005, the quiz game series has sold over 8 millions copies in more than 15 territories. Such success requires the creation of a large pool of fresh questions targeted to various groups of players in many different countries. This session covers the refined localization techniques in place to manage a product that contains huge volumes of text and a considerable amount of audio, and to ensure that the questions are prepared carefully through a combination of translating, adapting, creating, ranking and testing the questions.
