the fingerspell i have invented is at indiegogo get rich business plans by stephen givens on youtube it is a 30 second video so download and use snip to make a copy if you like it. please don't ban me i need this game for practicing the other ones too.
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,
