Hello,

Currently I am embarking on a little project while playing through Aquaria. I really like the language within the game and am working on translating it to english. It seems to be going fairly well so I thought others might be a little interested, if no one has done this before (I'm sure the designers already know it, but don't spoil it for me!). This has less become the game I originally meant it to be and more a chronicle of all the writing within the game. If you know of any that I have missed, please let me know (preferably with screenshots!).

Forgive any errors as I am mostly just guessing from what I can figure out. But I am having fun while doing it!

(Spoilers if anyone wishes to find them and translate it themselves)

/ - Represents line breaks as they are in the game

So far:
The entrance of home says: Home
Song Cave - Portal: Here lies Erulia our mother
Song Cave - Crystal: Spirit Remember
Song Cave - Northeast: Light will / guide her
Song Cave - Southeast: For Daughter
Song Cave - South: The fallen
Song Cave - Southwest: Creator
Energy Temple - Southern Cave (near 2nd pearl): Krel will pay / betrayal
Energy Temple - Krotite Armor: Flesh is weak
Open Waters - Eastern Central: Mithalas / beckons / you
Open Waters - Eastern North: Does / absolution / lie above / the waves
Open Waters - Eastern South: Krel and Ylia / forever
Open Waters - Eastern South2: My dearest / rest in peace
Open Waters - Mithalas Entrance: Fear the Lord
Open Waters - Arnassi Gauntlet: Arnassi Gauntlet
Open Waters - Southeast Entrance: Beware
Mithalas - Entrance: Mithalas
Mithalas - Beast Area House: Beyond / death we / hide
Mithalas - Southern House: Rainbow soup / my only escape
Mithalas Cathedral - Central Chamber: Eternal life ternal terrar
Mithalas Cathedral - Central Chamber2: Art / History / History *1
Mithalas Cathedral - Central Chamber3: Religion / Religion / Religion *1
Mithalas Cathedral - Central Chamber4: The World *1
Mithalas Cathedral - Southeastern Chamber: Save us
Mithalas Cathedral - Southern Chamber: Eternal / Heretics *2
Mithalas Cathedral - Southern Save Room: As he creates / so will he destroy / watching us from every shadow / he is the abyss taken form / to new waves / we must escape
Mithalas Cathedral - Southern Save Room (cont.): *** Sauguin
Mithalas Cathedral - Whirlpool Chamber: His wrath
Mithalas Cathedral - God Chamber: ave failed me / unger will consume you / feast on e flesh of your own children *3
Sun Temple - God Entrance: Marui the Architect / within lie my final thoughts
Sun Temple - Boss Chamber: Kill me and kill our creator / The transformation is almost done / The pain is becoming unbearable / We believed in reason / For many years we
Sun Temple - Boss Chamber (cont.): worshiped Sun / The Erulian histories are true / I have angered the Creator

*1 - Shelf labels, I believe
*2 - The R in heretics is also the R in eternal
*3 - The god's body was blocking some pictures, for the sake of accuracy I have left speculation up to you.

Merry Christmas,
Atlantis

I glanced at it, though not long enough to ruin my work. Though I wonder if that makes my game a bit pointless now.

I will still be updating my main post with ones that I find, in case anyone is interested.

The central chamber of Mithalas Cathedral is the strangest one I have seen yet and the most illegible. Makes me think I am making a mistake here but I see no evidence of letters that were once there.

Reads:
Eternal

  ternal

This one can be added too, I had a look at it in game today and affliction did a great job Smiley

Damn this thread, I saw a big block of runes, so I wanted to know what they said, and it was a pain in the ass. 

From the entrance to the boss of the sun temple:

"Marui the architect
Within lie my final thoughts"

Inside the sun temple boss chamber:
"Kill me and kill our creator
The transformation is almost done
The pain is becoming unbearable
We believed in reason
For many years we worshiped Sun
The erulian histories are true
I have angered the creator"

Sorry it took so long. Have added that part until I can get there myself. Thank you for the help Smiley

Good topic. Even though there have been similar ones before, you have some that they didn't get.  Wink
