New video game brings blind players out of the dark


A new video game is being developed that caters for people who are blind or vision impaired. Voices in the Dark has been designed with accessibility in mind, and as it has no graphics at all, creates a rich sensory experience for those without sight.

The game creates a three dimensional environment which can be explored by relying on a player’s sense of hearing. 

Designer Pablo Mera explained his approach to the project. “We are not aiming at making a game for blind people... we are aiming at making an incredible new experience for everybody, that happens to level the field so blind people won't feel excluded.
