Learn a fully functional symbol language by interacting with villagers that settled on an active volcano! Collect and apply phrases and words you may not immediately understand and discover that language is an expression of humanity.





Eloquence is a point-and-click language puzzle game. You learn to understand and eventually express yourself in a symbol language. The languages found in Eloquence are living and are used by the characters inhabiting the world. Test collected phrases and words on villagers and study their response, to find out what the symbols mean.





Eloquence’s language contains varied linguistic features that can be found in natural languages from all over the world. There is no writing in the game other than the symbol languages. The game uses visuals and sound to enhance communication with the player.





All conflicts and obstacles in Eloquence are cleared by using communication instead of violence. Eloquence furthermore has the mission to show that languages differ far less than you might expect, and that language is part of being human.





Players build on the linguistic knowledge they’ve accumulated so far, and may apply newly assembled phrases to islanders they’ve visited before to discover their own micro-narratives that weave a story web of history and characters’ experiences that connect a culture.





Eloquence intends to start a discussion on language and its place in the world – which is ultimately a discussion on humanity and mutual understanding.
