Looking for Feedback - Choice Based Audio Drama
My business partner and I have just begun prototyping a choice-based audio drama, we’re pretty new to the game accessibility community and were hoping for some pointers, and possibly some testers! We’re attempting to create a framework that allows us to develop multiple episodes, and possibly multiple seasons using the same gameplay systems.
The mechanic we’ve currently prototyped is based on choices presented to the player in audio that correspond with the left and right stereo channels, with left and right buttons on the player's mobile device that control which choice the player will make.
We’d love to hear any feedback you have on this concept, and what you would want out of a choice based audio drama (in terms of gameplay, story, choices, characters, world, genre, etc.)
Also if you’re interested in testing our game sometime down the line please send me a PM with your details and I’ll get back to you.
Also, any Australians out here in the community, if you’re in Melbourne we’d love to meet up with you and get a coffee, we’re looking for local user testers to get feedback from!
if you want to get into contact with me personally, email firstname.lastname@example.org or sent me a PM on twitter @evilneth
Thanks everyone! You all seem like a lovely bunch from my brief period of lurking!
This sounds cool and I'd be willing to beta test!
And I would want something different. Too many monster and shooting games are out there. I suggest a story of life or like a life sim. The character moves in to a neighbor-hood, builds a house and starts off from there. I could email you with story details if you like.
What is the name of the game? Please reply with the name as soon as possible.
I would have to agree. Most audio games are about fighting and conquering. Why not an audio game where a person tries to make a life for himself and/or his family. Why not a lifelike story for a change. You can maybe make your character have children or other fun little things. and I understand that there are not huge companies committed to making audio games specifically for the blind, but I feel that we need more variety in our audio gaming community.
Sounds pretty cool. I'd beta test that
