ABOUT LINGO LEGEND

Learning a language is hard. Lingo Legend combines language with gaming to make it a lot more fun so that learners stay motivated to reach their goals. Players face opponents of varying difficulty and must gain experience to unlock new cards and craft powerful weapons to defeat them. They have control over their playstyle through deck customization; and of course, this all takes place in an immersive fantasy world.

The story centers around Hamish and Aila, humble farmers living peaceful lives when their farm is attacked by monsters. Their beloved animals are terrified and flee into the nearby forest and so they must venture into hostile territory to rescue them. It isn’t long before they find themselves intertwined in a conflict larger than they could have imagined.

 

Player's language skills are tested while exploring the world in strategic monster battles. Each turn, players draw ability cards from a personalized deck and must correctly answer language flashcards to play them. Players will explore a vibrant world, meet intriguing characters, and unlock quests all while learning a new language.

 

Flashcards have never been this fun.
