We have been working for almost a year with our partners at Wonder Interactive to streamline our asset downloading and loading process, and finally we are ready to release! Loading is much faster, an average of 45% faster when loading from cache (i.e. on subsequent visits, not the first one when it is first downloading), to make ongoing playing faster to get back into the game!
Together with the server improvements released a couple of weeks ago, the general waiting time and performance once in the game should be largely improved. We would love to hear your feedback on how it’s feeling for you!
We have also added Spanish definitions for key vocabulary in our game, based on requests from districts looking for even more ELL supports than those we already have. This is our first step towards localization – we will expand the language support to other parts of the content and include more languages in the future. Please reach out with requests so we can see interest and decide on the order of importance to implement!
How to Enable the Spanish Glossary
English is used as default for the vocabulary definitions. To change the glossary language, go to “Game Options” in the “Options” menu and select the language in the drop-down. This will save the preferences for each student account.
