Hey everyone, someone over on Reddit r/blind said it would be worth chatting with you about our app, so here I am!
Basically we are trying to find out if our game would be suitable for the blind and partially sighted community.
We are an indie developer who are in the early stages of making a Rhythm Platforming game.
Early in development we realized that there was a real possibility that the rhythm and musical components of our game may make the platforming more accessible to the blind and partially sighted community. Currently we are testing the feasibility of this.
We are currently designing the levels to be playable by reacting to accents in the soundtrack. Obstacles, enemies and collectibles are all tied into these accents. Simply tap in sync with the accents to play.
Being a small team we don’t really have the resources to regularly test with blind and partially sighted players so we wanted to open up the game to you guys and get your feedback first hand.
We know there are currently challenges to using the menu system so some guidance may be required to actually access the 5 levels. (We are working on it - feedback for this element would be fantastic!)
* Give us feedback on where you have issues with either the interface or gameplay.
* How can we make the game even more fun for you!?
Every bit of advice you can give us will help us decide if our game is in fact suitable for blind and partially sighted players.
