Below are three transcripts/translations of the cutscenes from Blinx: The Time Sweeper. Since they're all done by different people, there will be differences.

(Blinx jumps into the portal)


  • It is a Fusional Oligosynthetic language; a semi-legit conlang a real linguist took time to make.
    • For those not aware of that think of those really long words that are from other languages like Inuit. That's what it is like. Sosometimesthingscan lookabitweird, butifyou understanditalittle thenyoucangetit.
  • I think as a product of the culture, a lot of discussion seems to be about time/pertaining to time. What did I expect though, honestly, they are TIME sweepers after all.
  • The language they speak in the game is a bit alien, but so is their number system. They use a base 64 counting system: 1 is {long e}, 64 is {eek}.

Translation of the Blinx Language by Rohan Zener

Original source from a comment by Rohan Zener on OldClassicGamer's channel discussion page.

In Blinx: The Time Sweeper, the characters speak a unique and unnamed language that seems to function as a common tongue within the Time Factory. The Tom Tom Gang seem to speak either a different language or a variant of the Time Factory language. The language is absent in Blinx 2: Masters of Time and Space, with all dialogue being rendered in English instead of this language.​

The language is isolating (as spoken clearly by a narrating Blinx, and some others in cutscenes). It also seems to have a SVO-default word order (subject-verb-object, the same as English), as well as a "past-future" orientation with clauses. In addition, the language seems fairly analytic and context-sensitive. All bound morphemes listed here are derivational; the language has no inflection.

The following words can be isolated:

  • "mav" = we/us
  • "ma" = my/our
  • "reystam" = time
  • "wertham" = glitch/fault
  • "faktam" = assembly
  • "lastokh" = monster/fear
  • "lastakh" = wisdom
  • "-iss" = with
  • "signa" = work
  • "siram" = visit
  • "la-" = [empirical prefix]
  • "sigram" = see/look
  • "straksam" = farewell
  • "hen" = it
  • "heñ" = here
  • "no" = of
  • "stakh" = goodness
  • "a" = at/to/in
  • "stokh" = grief
  • "motakh" = universe/world
  • "geem" = name/being/person
  • "täreyv" = trade
  • "fereyv" = sweep
  • "reyv" = move
  • "stam" = stand/remain
  • "epi" = different
  • "thik" = similar
  • "lätik" = [negative article]
  • "-'n" = [successive sequential suffix]
  • "efi" = out
  • "mana" = [previous object auxiliary]
  • "Beess-Ix-Keuv-Nee-Maks" = "B1Q64"
  • "Brinks" = "Blinx"
