Recently I had the opportunity to do a game cultural consultation.
The game is related to the Maya culture and Guatemala is the cradle of said culture, so I was pleasantly surprised when I was approach by a British agency to see if I could do a cultural consultation for their client.
Although I have done some localization projects in the past, this was my first cultural consultation for a game, and I loved it! I received great visual materials to work with and it feels great to be able to help make sure that the Maya culture is properly represented in an important game.
I hope I get to do more of these projects, they are really a great way to learn more and to do something different than just translating a text.
Have you done any of these projects? What have your experiences been like?
