Description of App

A Blind Legend is the first-ever action-adventure game without video – where ears replace eyes! Discover the original, innovative sensory experience of binaural 3D sound. HEADPHONES ARE COMPULSORY! AUDIO GAME FULLY ACCESSIBLE TO BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE Your eyes will be of no help. So close them, sharpen your hearing and your blade... And embark on an epic, perilous rite of passage. Live the adventures of Edward Blake, the famous blind knight! Guided by your daughter Louise, you must find your way and avoid the many traps that lie in the High Castle Kingdom, while confronting dangerous enemies! This serious game is fully accessible to visually impaired people, and is aimed at anyone who’s eager for an original, immersive sensory experience through a ground-breaking video game. And because the player is the character, it will help raise public awareness of this kind of disability. This hack-and-slash game, with a heroic-fantasy flavour, harnesses the innovative technology of binaural sound, which delivers a gripping 3D soundscape and brings characters and actions vividly to life around the player – as if they were actually in the game! A Blind Legend was co-created thanks to support from a community of fans who helped with the crowdfunding campaign (www.ulule.com/a-blind-legend) and in a co-production with France Culture, a Radio France station.

I have had this game for the iPhone for a long time and have almost completed. I was over joyed to find out while browsing this forum tonight that there is a mac version of this game. I am finding it much easier to keep up with Louise meaning that i can play threw the scenes quicker and with more confidence. my next project is to look in to getting a game pad.

I grabbed the game this morning. I haven't started playing yet but I think I'm going to enjoy playing this on my Mac better than I do on my iPhone. I think I only got up to about scene 8 or 9 on the IOS version.

I've passed that level.. I don't know if they fixed a bug, or maybe I gave it a million and one tries and got lucky. Either way I've made it across, and have resumed having fun playing this game. All should play this game, but I recommend using an actual controller. Sorry folks,

Am I correct in thinking you have to get this through steam?

Hi, it would appear to only be on IOS now, in terms of apple offerings. I managed to get it on steam but required some help with installation.

I am very frustrated after purchasing this through Steam only to not be able to play ABL. I listened to the PodCast for this demo play and he had the actual ABL app file whereas I can't even download my purchase to play. Does the blind gaming community need sighted assistance to play a blind game?
