I can shed a little light on this.
It's a German gaming company that is pushing various in-browser games (like Ikariam
) where your advancement is based on time, rather than dice rolls and missions. Think "EVE Online" for the
Anyway, their games are free, fairly fun for a while, but pretty poorly translated in parts. I've played a number of them, but Gladiatus was only
half-translated from German, and so I couldn't understand most of what I needed to do or what the instructions were. That and having to wait 15
minutes just to fight a mob was ridiculous.
All in all, I'm sure they didn't mean any offense, and are a legit company, they're just trying to cater to something like 20+ languages at once,
so their localization process is probably a bit behind.
