    That's ammusing with VAL. It works in English: Virtual Artificial Lifeform, but they had to make a cop-out with other languages.

    What does -a-touar mean?

    -a-touar is the Startopia terminaison for the french -atoire : laboratoire, observatoire; or English -atory : laboratory, observatory

    Does that mean the English translation of the French translation of the English original is:

    Love-atory
    Jail-atory (Brig)
    Combat-atory (Fighting Pit)
    Panoram-atory (Viewing Gallery)
    Sick-atory
