The project is a new action adventure animation and game targeted at 8-12 year olds. The creators need a full conlang with up to 1000 words as well as a writing system.
The speakers of the language are creatures that have evolved over millennia from primordial life forms into beings of varying types that have taken on individual traits from other species on Earth, but retain their core in a shared language, among other common attributes.
The language will be written and may be spoken.
The language is to be challenging yet not too complicated for our young audience. The aim is for the audience is to try and decipher the language which would give them clues about the storyline and/or characters.
There is the possibility of future consultancy work, pending successful commission. More details will be provided to the successful candidate.
