Cloudpunk – German Translation

Cloudpunk by ION LANDS is a story-based cyberpunk game in which you take on the role of delivery driver Rania and uncover the secrets and mysteries of the metropolis of Nivalis.

Together with the Warlocs we translated the game into different languages, with me of course taking care of the complete German localization. The game is now available on Steam. Ports for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch will follow this year.

Story

“Your name is Rania. This is your first night working for Cloudpunk, the semi-legal delivery company based in the sprawling city of Nivalis. You go everywhere, from the Marrow below to the spires that pierce the grey clouds high above before scraping the edge of the troposphere. No delivery job is too dangerous, and no one is faster than a Cloudpunk driver.”
