    I need help from fellow patricians in possibly finding games in latin.

    I was surprised to find that there is actually a commercial game available with full latin voiceovers and subtitles: Nicholas Eymerich: Inquisitor episode 1. Sadly the game isn't very good and the studio released part 2 without the latin feature.

    I have later found that there was a guy translating snes roms into latin. The madman actually finished Zelda and FFI, but gave up on his big project midway(FFVI, a pity it wasn't finished). I also found a thread about a project translating CK2 into latin but it seems to have been abandoned before getting anywhere.

    Is there anything else? I assume there are some fan translations around, but google is hard on such niche things.

    Pity this didn't happen to Dawn of War or another of the few good Warhammer40k games instead.

    I found out that the FFVI translation was finished afterall! Silly me, I had no idea the game was called "FFIII" in the US originally. It seems to be quite good, I have downloaded and will replay the game in latin after all these years. Hopefully I can still enjoy it, I have abandoned jrpgs in my late teens.

    If anyone knows of anything else please let me know. I am studying latin and always found that games were excellent means to learn a new language.

    Hipsters don't know latin, you faggot. If they did I would be able to find more games in the language.

    There are already effective methods to teach classical languages and a lifetime's worth of material to utilize it not to mention its quality. I suppose having FFVI in latin is προς χαριν....

    Glory of the Roman Empire.
    I don't know if the other Ancient Rome themed games from HaemimontGames also have a Latin mode.
