Office Lingo

While in several of the Nancy Drew games we have the opportunity to hear and learn a few different languages, such as Spanish, French, Italian, German, and a wee bit ‘o Cockney, here at Her Interactive we have our own language: English. That is, English with a bit of computer speak.

We have words that are often spoken that not very many outsiders would understand…(I bet you might recognize most, though). Here are some common words I hear:

Render, pixelated, beta, alpha, pass, CAL, bug, convo, build, scrum, blocking, bink, resolution, doc, and of course, many of us refer to the past games by their 3-letter acronym. We say clock, dan, train, cur, and cap for example.

Look here, this is my favorite quote for it’s use of colorful language:

It says “We’ve got some loop de loop, bangers and mash, a real fine pinky and perky, and a delicious Dog’s Eye me fork and knife just rubber ducked.” — Tommy from Curse of Blackmoor Manor.

Got to love the ole Cockney sounds!

(If you don’t have Curse of Blackmoor Manor, consider the Collector’s Edition Fan Favorites set, which is now available at 50% off, now $24.99.)

    My pastor’s from Egland, so he speaks in cockney just for fun sometimes. Btw, CUR was my 1st ND game, and as soon as I played it, I was hooked! HeR officially changed my life! I made my best friend that way. She’s also an avid Nancy Drew player. Thanks so much for changing my life! 😀

    I really want to sneak into HER and hear how you guys speak now. Would I be totally confused? Possibly. But then it would be like a code, trying to decipher your every word.

  4. ~R, i’m glad you enjoyed CUR and that you made a friend over it! That’s super awesome! (Also, that’s pretty cool that your pastor speaks Cockney sometimes, that sounds like fun). 🙂

    I would love to see the look on anyone’s face in reaction to how we speak. It’s not too hard to decipher, but we do sound a little geek-ish. Hehe. ~.^

    we went to England, and while we were waiting in line, a guard started speaking cockney to us, and it was really cool, and I thought of CUR. 🙂
