Influent is a Language Learning Game focusing primarily on vocabulary acquisition and pronunciation. It was initially developed in Japan at the University of Tsukuba's Entertainment Computing Laboratory under the Monbukagakusho Government Research Scholarship.
Inspired by Dreamcast titles of old (namely Shenmue and Toy Commander) Influent immerses players in a fully interactive 3D environment where the names for absolutely every object in the game can be gleaned with a single click! In fact, even more information can be learned with a double-click! Every door, drawer, and cabinet can be opened with a right-click here and a right-click there, revealing more and more things to be learned! Packed to the brim with hundreds of native audio pronunciations (painstakingly recorded specifically for this game), Influent offers players a unique opportunity to enjoy learning both vocabulary and pronunciation in the language of their choice.

Ratings and Reviews
As someone who is trilingual, vocabulary building is an essential part of the language learning process and Influent nails it. Super fun and interactive way to start learning a new language and/ or improve on one you already speak. The native pronunciation on each language is really helpful to learn to speak like the locals.
I like the idea of practicing vocabulary in a 3D environment and the touch controls are fine. My main problem with this game is that you can’t skip the tutorial. I believe it would help if I had not played other 3D games for the iPad and the steam version of this game. But since I had, I find the tutorial annoying. It gets worst if you want to try practicing other languages, since you have to play the tutorial every time you start a new save and you can’t save until you complete it. Outside of that, the only other complaint I have is the lack of controller support.
Developer Response ,
Fair point. Including skip feature in the next update. My bad! 😅
Plan on using this as a daily vocabulary tool to practice Italian and Japanese. Walk around a 3d house, click on everything and anything for the game to break the word phonetically and add it to your vocabulary list. Multiple mini games to test your word list, plus you can fly around in a sweet jet with lasers. Pew pew.
