what's new ?I'm a retired programmer.
Recently, I became able to face the PC again, and I remembered that someone said, "There are few games that visually impaired people can play."
So I made some games.
All of them are freeware.The concept I have is "games that can be played by sighted people and visually impaired people at the same level."
You can play them on Windows 7 or later.
It might be difficult to provide solid user support for some reasons of myself. But if you like, please try to play them.
- Jun 2022'Genji-Chord'
This is a game to play with music chords. However, no musical knowledge is required.
- June 2022'Blindfold Batting'
This is a falling type game. Hit back the falling balls by relying on thier sound.
- June 2022'Chordris'
This is also a falling type game. The game name is a combination of music chord and Tetris.You catch the falling ball in a basket ... If the "Genji Code" above mentioned would be a static game, this is a dynamic version of it.
- June 2022'Noisy Mole'
This game is the so-called Whac-A-Mole.
You can play it as a normal Whac-A-Mole, but on the blindfold stage, the game view is hidden. Rely on the sound of the mouse moving to find and beat the moles.
- June 2022'Blind War'
This is a torpedo battle game. Sink the enemy ships with torpedoes.The position of the enemy ship will be notified by sounds.
This game uses SAPI speech synthesis.
These are the above five.
They will display help with the F1 key, so read the help files first.
In games other than the GenjiChord, sound is an important factor to determin the position. However, they do not use surround sound. If you have normal sound device, you can play them with a notebook PC.
However, visually impaired people may have removed the mouse.Only the 4th "Noisy Mole" requires a mouse or a pointing device such as an electrostatic pad to play. A cheap item of a few dollars is enough.
I hope there is something you like.( June 2022, Kazuhiro KITO).
