musi ni li pona a tawa mi! tenpo pini lili la mi kama sona e toki pona. tan musi ni la, mi sona pona e nimi ale pi toki pona. nasin "lipu nimi" lin pona kin tawa mi. ona pana mi e ni: mi ken sona e nimi kepeken toki pona. tan ni la, mi kama sona,

tenpo kama la, jan James Moulang li pana e nimi ku suli anu seme?


I like this game! About two weeks ago I started getting into Toki Pona, and thanks in part to playing this for a few rounds every morning, I have learned all the words. The Lipu Nimi is great too, because I can read the bits in Toki Pona, practicing my comprehension. 

Do you have any plans to add the "nimi ku suli" from the Toki Pona dictionary? I see tonsi and monsuta are already there (which is good because I am indeed a monsuta tonsi) but I was wondering if the rest would make it in.

Thanks for the game!

I love this! 

I've run into a bug though: after completing the first section in "sitelen pona". clicking on Start in the Review block makes it show an empty window with no buttons. I can see a javascript error in the console: "Uncaught ReferenceError: char is not defined" in main.js. Tried clearing all site data & cookies, same result.

I'd really like to complete all the sections, so it would be awesome if this could perhaps be patched. Thanks!

Edit: Bug has been fixed :)

Fixed. Thanks for letting me know! You can skip the Learn phase with the } key to get back to where you were.

Great stuff, thanks so much!

Hey, I just played your game.

Here are my feedbacks on it :

- Feeling of the game is great

- Music is really soothing EVEN IF the gameplay is a bit speedy which contrast

- Really impressive considering the background behind this game, creating a langage is really something.

Congrats !
