Calling all Blind gamers. I am working with a game production company to develop a game similar to Audio Defence. I guess I got tired of waiting around for someone else to do it. My game is called The Circus Masters Revenge. You guessed it. Instead of zombies coming at you. You will have 23 different kinds of circus performers that are trying to attack you. This game is still in the early stages of development. My first time attempting something like this so I am being very very picky. I don’t care if the blind community wants to play this game or not. I want to play it because I am a blind gamer that misses this type of game. I have to admit that when Somethin Else left iOS. I was really upset. I never even got to play the night jar. They definitely were ahead of their time as far as game play goes. Atleast on a mobile platform. Nobody since has even come close. This is where I want to succeed. Not just for all the blind gamers out there but for me. If you are interested in a game like this. Let me know in a comment. The more gamers interested in a game like this will help my game producers understand how important this game will be to us. I even got Marty from the blindfold series interested in this game. He is helping me understand the business side of this adventure. So when this game is developed and you enjoy it make sure you thank him for helping me out with the process. I will keep everyone updated on the progress right here. Thanks for your time. I will try my best not to let you down.

iOS and iPadOS Gaming
This game sounds very interesting
I, for one, will definitely be checking this game out if it comes to fruition. I spent hours playing Audio Defence and considered it a real favourite. I still have the game on my iPhone but it crashes. Thank you for taking the time to develop a game similar to what we previously had.
I am so glad that you have brought this up. I really miss games like this on my phone and I think that the more of them we can get, the better. I get tired of text based adventures and word games and, for once, want some sort of audio adventure or shooting game for iOS again. I'm with you: the games by Something' Else were, well, something else! :) Seriously, though, I dearly miss them and wish I could play them again.
Going to try
Really want to make it as great or if possible better than its parent. If you wouldn’t mind spreading the word in your gaming circles. The more gamers interested the better the quality. Thanks buddy
Will do my best
Spread the word. The more comments. The easier it will be for me to prove that this is what our blind community needs.
This sounds cool and I'd play it if it comes out!
response to topic
i'd play such a game when it comes out gladly:)
this post makes me feel excited, good luck!
I will 100 percent play!
I will 100 percent play!!! I would love to see a game like that again. We need more of those.
I miss this kinds of game
I'm extremely supportive of this game! I'm interested in playing the game as a beta tester when the time comes and purchase the game when it is released! Thank you for creating this game! Looking forward to playing it!
We have all been waiting for games such as PAPA SANGRE, AudioDefense and The KnightJAR for too long, my friend. Certainly there are many of us who will support your work. Hopefully, very soon we will be able to play this new game and many others that may follow.
I'd play this game.
I think this is the kind of game I'd enjoy.
Will we get upgrades and things like that?
Or perhaps our own people we can add to our team to help fight the circus.
I would play
This game sounds like a great idea, I have heard a lot about audio defence and the fact is that most people I know, are disappointed that audio defence went away. I think this game is a great idea and I would definitely play it.
woul totally dig
I would totally dig this if it came out. I need a good shooter and audiodefence was a real favorite of mine.
About the game
Yes there will be weapon upgrades. Only one character in the story line. The Blind Guy. No help from other players. Solo experience.
sounds wonderful looking forward to it:)
AD was a great game and I am looking forward to playing yours.
Wow this is a brilliant idea. I love the thing with the circus performers. That would be so cool. I definittely would play this game.
Miss the shoot em up games. The lack of action games on the iOS system that are both enjoyable and have really cool sound effects is very sad.
I'm definitely in. I had loads of fun with Audio Defense and I'm glad you are stepping up to make something similar to it.
Agreed with everyone on here.
Agreed with everyone on here. Had AD since it came out. Now that I got the new iPhone X it won't even run on it, so it's sad. But, I truely can't wait to see what comes from this!
i'm in. this game sounds great. count me in for beta testing. also, thank you for bringing a similar game to it. i miss playing audio defense lol.
if you need
If you want, or need help with sound effects for the game, i can give you a hand.
Will this game in time also
Will this game in time also be ported to android? If so I encourage you to post the same thing at inclusiveandroid.com and see if you get the same response. I think you will. Also I'm a member of several lists where we discuss stuff like this so if you need any help I'm sure someone will be able to help you post this over. I also loved AD and with my 4 gigs of ram I'll be able to play this no problem. I might have so much fun that I forget to do any work. Lol!
Take care and be blessed.
I miss that game so much :(
I really do. I was 2 stars away from having all the challenges done. Excited though, we definitely need more games
I'm also in
I'm also in for beta testing whenever stuff starts to come together.
I am looking forward to it!
hi! I am looking forward to it!
hope it can be released soon.
I don't mind it is a paid app/ game
because a good game should have great support and reward!
and awe should support your hard work.
This game will be available for Android. We are talking about launching it on google play also. iOS gamers will be the primary target audience. This is where AD fans were born. Might take awhile to place it Else where. If you want to spread the news. You have my permission.
I have been waiting to play a game like this for almost 5 years. I am Mainstreaming this game for the blind community. For people who have visuals. This game will be just as interesting. The game producers want to add VR graphics to this game. When the game begins at the start menu. It will ask you to turn off your voice over. This game will contain its own voice over. You will scroll through the menu options left or right. When the option is highlighted, the voiceover will tell you what it is. Double tap to select the option and so forth. When the blind player starts the game. They will hold the iPhone in portrait mode. Their screen will be blank. Only 3-D audio to direct you in the gaming scenarios. Listen. Point. Shoot. Melee weapons will also be available. Controls will be very similar if not exactly like audio defence. For the visual community. They will have to go to settings in the menu screen and select a virtual reality mode. If they have the VR glasses they can play it in landscape mode. No matter who plays this game. Headsets will have to be worn to get the 3-D audio effect. The company I have chosen to help me design this game has estimated it’s cost to be around 20,000. Right now I only have half. Marty from the Blind fold series is going to assist me with a Kickstarter soon. This price is very cheap considering the technology that’s going into it. If the game is funded. then we could be able to play as soon as September or October time frame. If people donate to the Kickstarter for the Circus Masters Revenge. Marty and I will come up with a code to put in the game to give you free weapon upgrades. Can’t make promises right now. Will have to talk to Marty first. Sounds like a good idea though. I know personally that if audio defence or papa Sangre came back to iOS. I would spend $25-$45 just to play them again. So I’m under no false pretenses that our blind community would do the same. I am not trying to break anyone’s piggy bank. I just know how much a game like this will mean to us again. I know how much we will appreciate it this time around. I’m not trying to get Rich or make A bunch of money by developing this game. Probably just be lucky to get my money back. I just want to freaking play it.
I was just informed by the game developers that there will be a website. When this website is active soon I will post it on here. Getting excited.
I don’t want to offend any one but if this game is like audio defence its worth it.
Because for me 5 dollars is so low price and that’s why game like this don’t last long
This is why I want to fund half myself. I want to play it. I have some good ideas. I am open to any ideas if you have them. This is your game too. Wish I could show you guys what I have so far. Dr Bastard would be proud. Haha.
I would play it!
Aside from the fun of playing the game: The movement to control the game play is fun. Please include that in the controls. I think that is the reason that I played the hell out of AD.
Thanks. I will do this. I can
Thanks. I will do this. I can't wait. Let us know when it's out on google play.
Would be interested to test this game before it got released on the app store, that sounds really good.
I want to be one also. If this game kicks ass like I think it will. I won’t ever play another game besides the Circus Masters revenge. I got a hold of Somethin Else to let them know that I am trying to keep their Audio Defence idea alive. I even gave them a link to this page to let them know the iOS Blind Community misses them. If you would really like to to help us out. Share this link on your gaming community sites. More interest this game produces the better it will be. The team that is helping me doesn’t think this type of game is sought out by blind gamers. We can prove them wrong. Spread the word guys.
Are you a visually and paired gamer?
response to coment
i am a visually impaired person and have been totally blind since birth:) If you are seeking testers i'd love to be one:)
Me as well
I like to test this game
Thought I would share this with my community.
I hope that you guys like this. I wrote this when I was at the VA blind rehab center in Chicago.
Where the hell are all the Blind gamers at? I have ben looking for them for like five days now. Even the Apple forums used to be busier than they are now. I really need some help finding them. If someone was doing what I am doing a year ago. I would want the blind community to come find my ass. If I don’t hit my target of interested visually impaired gamers. The producers will just make this game for the cited community. That would be a freaking waste.
Sign Me Up
I am definitely in. I was heartbroken when Somethin Else left the gaming community. I would certainly be interested in becoming a Beta tester.
If this is a game you want to be beta testers
If this is a game that you want to be a beta tester for and be a part of. Then help me get out there and promote it. I cant do all this on my own. I’m not as deep in the blind gamer community as I used to be. I don’t even know where to look besides here. I have posted on several YouTube host’s channels. I have posted on several blind gamer websites. I don’t know what else to do. This game is the only shot we have this year to recover an Audio D type game. I don’t know about you guys but I am really getting pissed and bored of purchasing a game I assume is similar to Audio d. Then to find out I just wasted 3 or 5 dollars for a game that’s not even accessible I am really motivated to get this game out so we can go back to having fun. Like I said before. This isn’t my game. This is our game. You’re not helping me. You are helping your self. What is stopping you? Isn’t this what we have wanted for the last three years?
Hi I am totally blind and I would like to beta test
My email is email@example.com
I would like to play this game!
I really miss audio defence and something else games! I'd like to be a beta tester if it's possible.
Willing and able!
Hi Joseppie! Thanks for taking the initiative and getting this type of teriffic game back in playing condition for us!
This blind gamer is very willing and ready to pay for the type of accessible FPS that Audio Defense was. I loved the jyro technology that had me up and virtually fighting back to the point where I'd break into a sweat to finish a round, and try to beat my best scores!
If I can help besides posting this to my gaming friends, I will be glad to do so. Can't wait till we have a good working copy of this game to try, and buy.
As far as price, if the 3d surround sounds and the same interactive way to play are as good as AD, or better? $40 would be a fair price for the hours and hours of challenging fun I got from that one game.
Thanks again, let your sighted developers know a group of very serious gamers who happened to be blind are out here and waiting to see what they can produce! :)
Keep up the good work!
I am definitely interested in
I am definitely interested in playing this game
This game sounds awesome!
I would love to play this type of game! It sounds really interesting, plus, I really miss the something else line of iOS games. They were incredible and the only game that comes close is a blind legend. I would love to beta-test this circus game when it becomes available, but I’ve never done something like that before. How does that work question mark
Thank you for the support. I’ve never done a beta test. I’m not sure how it works either. When the game is closer to being complete I am sure the developers well let me know they are ready for beta testers.
I will post everything on here to let you guys know when the time comes. I want to be able to keep all of you informed on what’s going on.
Go for it man, I support your endeavor
Was just reading this and I have to say, wow. Audio Defence was a timeless classic, my wife and I spent several hours playing it and developing our shooting skills. It would be great to have something like it again.
