Papa Sangre II has just arrived in the iTunes App Store. This much anticipated follow-up to the Papa Sangre game from 2010 is the third audio only game release from Somethin’ Else. If this latest adventure follows in the footsteps of the two previous games, it is certain to be a hit with blind iOS gamers.
Papa Sangre II is a horror game that takes as its starting point a macabre concept: your own death. The player’s goal is to return to the land of the living by exploring an immersive story-world, collecting memories of dead souls to get back to the other side.
Contrary to traditional games, Papa Sangre II has no visuals: the gameplay takes place in audio only and makes use of the most immersive technology available: the player’s own imagination. In effect, Papa Sangre II is a video game with no video!
Throughout the game, players are guided through the underworld by the omniscient narrator Sean Bean, famous for his roles in Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
Papa Sangre II utilizes a 3D binaural engine capable of generating true 3D sound from mono recordings. The spatial audio encompasses all 360 degrees of rotation, allowing sound to be positioned all around the listener’s head, including behind. Papa Sangre II features over 1,600 individually processed sounds.
