How about a video game, no video? This is the proposal of the game A Blind Legend, a game from Dowino, a French company that creates games, applications and films.
How about a video game without video? This is the proposal of the game A Blind Legend, developed by Dowino, a French company that creates games, applications and films.
And the most interesting thing is that the game was funded by crowdfunding at ulule. The initial fundraising goal of 40,000 euros has already been reached, but there are other goals to add more information to the game. The game will be free for users, a great initiative. How about helping with the other goals?
You will be Edward Blake (first person), a knight whose wife, Dame Caroline, has been kidnapped by the fearsome Thork, guardian of the High Castle Island dungeon and his sworn enemy.
On the day of the kidnapping, Thorks takes Blake’s eyes out …
Guided by his daughter Louise, he sets out to take on Thork’s army, defying all obstacles in order to save his wife.
And so you set out on a long journey … You will traverse gigantic forests and mountains, battle a furious sea, avoid the dangers of High Castle dungeons in order to face Thork in an unforgiving duel. The trip will be full of traps, encounters and, of course, plenty of combat.
How does the game work?
The game’s proposal is very simple: there is nothing visual, just three-dimensional sounds that put the player in true immersion within the game environment. The player uses only simple commands on the phone that will guide the character through the paths.
Check out an audio demo of the game:
A playable demo (in French) is also available on the game’s website. Now we have to wait and hope that the app is translated into other languages as well.
