What is A Blind Legend?
A Blind Legend is the first ever action-adventure game which is played entirely using audio and without any visuals whatsoever. The player takes on the role of Edward Blake, a famous blind knight. You are guided by your daughter Louise, as you must find your way and avoid traps that lie within the Kingdom while confronting dangerous enemies.
It is a game which is fully accessible to people who are visually impaired and aims at players eager to experience an immersive sensory experience. It is a hack-and-slash game that uses binaural sound to deliver a 3D soundscape, which helps bring characters and actions vividly to life around the player.
An original and unique experience
A Blind Legend is without a doubt going to be a very original and unique game. It is going to offer players an experience unlike any other. Not only that, but it will help to raise the public awareness of those with visual impairment.
Putting on a pair of headphones, closing your eyes and playing a game that only contains audio is something that will give people the experience of what it is like to be visually impaired. It may not be a game that will appeal to everyone, but nevertheless it is going to be one heck of an experience. It is going to be interesting to see how such a game fairs in the video game market.
