Game descriptions on Steam are important, right?
They have to communicate the game’s message, describe the game itself, sell potential customers on the game.
Or they can do what Drift Streets Japan does: shout excitedly at customers like a toddler running round and round in circles.
Well, that’s what I assume is happening, from the description.
IT’S A RACING GAME ABOUT STREET RACING!
IT HAS NICE CARS AND ADVANCED TUNING!
MOST REALISTIC AND BEST PHYSICS!
THE MOST QUALITY GRAPHICS!
Dear lord, these developers sure aren’t afraid of exclamation marks. Later down the page…
Just for kicks I decided to delve a little deeper. Drift Streets Japan was developed by a studio called JDM4IK. They’ve released two games on Steam to date: Drift Streets Japan, which came out a couple of days ago and a game called ‘Weapons Genius’, a weapon building simulator which was released in July.
The description for Weapons Genius:
Regular old full stops are just not in this team’s wheelhouse.
These reviews are… interesting.
And then later…
I probably shouldn’t be too hard on this team — it’s clearly the work of a person who speaks English as a second language. My guess is Japan. I taught English in Japan for two years and a lot of these mistakes seem incredibly familiar to me. Regardless — this made me laugh.
