Big Bad Spanish
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
This is a prototype version of the mobile app we're working on and this build is for PC/OSX/Linux but the UI is focused on mobile. If you have a gigantic screen we recommend playing windowed.
Psst! Use your Phrasebook if you're stuck or need to view previous sentences. It's the blue book icon!
Learn Spanish quickly through humiliating immersion mixed with social combat!
Big Bad Spanish (BBS) is a game which teaches you Spanish for the REAL world by throwing you into the deep end and letting you sink or swim.
Learning a new language is hard...
Most people learn languages in a classroom environment where there is safety in numbers and you practice with the same, bland but helpful characters.
And that's why it doesn't work...the real world - the Big Bad world is full of impatient and unhelpful people who do not follow the rules of the classroom.
BBS uses branching conversations. What you choose to say can completely change the course of the conversation...for good and bad.
From mumbling Colombians to bureaucrats in Barcelona, every character has a unique, natural accent and personality ranging from friendly to downright hostile.
You play as Benji, a normal twenty-something with zero Spanish skills who gets sucked into a globe trotting quest. From Cuba to Cantabria and Caracas to Colombia, you will meet people from every corner of the Spanish speaking world.
And by interacting with and battling these cranky hotel receptionists, sleazy taxi drivers, flirty waitresses, slurring slimey douchebags and scuzzy muggers you WILL learn to speak commando Spanish naturally and with confidence in every situation.
You learn by getting knocked down, brushing yourself off and trying again.
Its frustrating but you will forever remember the words and phrases you hear and then be able to pull them out in real life without just like "wax on-wax off".
Get out of your comfort zone and jump into the deep end.
