Aaron Rasmussen and Michael T. Astolfi are developing a game based solely on audio cues. Inspired by personal experience, Blindside is being developed first as a short, forty-five minute episode for the PC and Mac.
It’s called BlindSide, and it’s one of the first games to bring a brand new gaming experience to sighted players, that can also be fully enjoyed by visually impaired gamers. So far we’ve completed 10 minutes of gameplay to prove out the technology, and demonstrate that our core mechanic is fun. There have been a handful of audio-only games, but nothing like this before.
The project has been fully funded, and we’re told to expect it by the end of January 2012.
