Dear members of InXile team,
Russia has a huge Wasteland and Fallout series fan community, and people are really looking forward to Wasteland 2 here. The Russian gamer audience was about 7 million in 2010 (showing average yearly growth of 19% over 2008 and 2009), supposedly having reached 10 million by end of 2012.
If you plan to cover this market, my company and I will be happy to participate in this awesome project and prepare the Russian version of the game.
As only 4.9% of Russians speak English, localization usually rockets game sales in Russia – according to an Electronic Arts report, localizing even back-catalogue EA titles into Russian showed 407% average increase in sales of these titles. And the 2011 BSA global software piracy study noticed that Russia’s PC software piracy rate has now dropped a record 24 points in the past nine years, so there may be good potential in the Russian market.
A few words about my company.
