Shashingo: An Upcoming Game That Teaches Japanese Through Photography

The game is being developed by Ryan Pocock on Unreal Engine.

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to learn basic Japanese, here's a fantastic game that you should definitely check out. Meet Shashingo, an upcoming Unreal Engine-powered game that teaches you one of the most difficult languages on Earth through a simple process of virtual photography.

Being created by Technical Artist and Game Developer Ryan Pocock, a.k.a. Autumn Pioneer, Shashingo will enable you to traverse a stylized Japanese-style 3D world and capture an enormous number of various objects with your camera. Each photo you take then turns into a flash card with Japanese and English names for the object you have captured, allowing you to learn by observing.

On top of that, the game promises to include a game mode that tests your memory and is set to feature grammar lessons for beginners, serving as a full-fledged comprehensive introductory course for learning the ABCs of Japanese.

And here are some demos shared by the developer:
