Saber Duel: An Audio Game for the Blind
The following game anouncement was posted by Alexander Shen on alexander shen's art blog and is reposted here for your convenience.
I was walking to the train the other night, and I was thinking about an article that I read some time ago about a boy that was incredibly good at Soul Calibur despite the fact that he was blind. He memorized the sounds that different characters and moves made, so he knew how to react. Ultimately, he didn't let his disability limit him from enjoying a fantastic video game and source of entertainment.
I thought about this and decided that it was time for me to try my hand at creating games that were accessible to those with disabilities.
The first game that I've created is called Saber Duel. It's essentially a lightsaber blocking game where you block
attacks coming from your left, center or right. I'd recommend using headphones as it'll further immerse you into the game. You
should also know that this game runs on Windows only.
