    • Hi everyone! My name is Zein, I'm hearing and are working with a few other people on a sci-fi action-platformer VR game that features a deaf main NPC that uses ASL to communicate with the player. The player can sometimes respond with single-word answers by picking up a word bubble that changes the hand shape and then making the corresponding gesture (e.g. pick up the fist for YES, then tilt the controller up and down) I am currently learning signing myself and I'm reaching out to communities to get feedback for authenticity and inclusion. I have some dialogue lines for the character but it would help a lot to get feedback, because I'm sure, a lot of lines / signs, are currently weird or out of place. I already got feedback from a discord community for the first line. I can share this here so you can get a better picture. Randy: Oh my God! There was an earthquake at the excavation site, and some sort of lightning storm. I'm not sure... are you okay? ASL: WOAH! Earthquake there mining place do-do. Loud lightning! Why no-idea. You alright you (eyebrows up)?   Here's me trying it myself but it will be hand-animated once it gets into the game.     Would anybody be intereseted/willing to give their input and feedback? I would share more of Randy's lines here to improve, fix, or correct them. It would be a great help!  Thank you for your time, Zein
    • Holy moly, I was not expecting this many people to respond to my post!😅 I would like to get to know you guys and see if we could possibly work something out. Maybe we could set up a time to be on?
    • hey! im ellie, i've been learning asl for half a year now and i can clearly see myself improving and i want to invest myself with more deaf culture and other people who are learning! 
    • Hi guys! Thanks for replying to my topic. I wouldn’t mind getting some practice. If you ever need a partner just tell me and I’ll see when I’m free. ^^
    • Hi everyone I need tips and instructions for signs so I could make a short horror movie with sign language  because I feel that deaf community needs more attention. Since I know little bit of Emarati sign language and unfortunately they are not helping me to learn so I changed my mind about  Emarati sign language So please I need a help and thank you everyone
