Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish. If it doesn't bother you, of course.

PD: Great job with this game, I love it.

Hi Mel, thanks for your interest the game! A translation sounds really exciting! :D What would you need for it? I'm not really sure that I'd want to send over the entire game project. Would we be able to sort something out using a localisation plugin?

I'd only need two folders, but I don't know if that would be a bother for you... D: 

I've sent you a message on tumblr since I think it'll be easier to talk over there :)
