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!
