OverviewOverview

A Blind Legend is an adventure game that is played without graphics. You use headphones to play this game. You play Edward Blake, a blind knight who is guided by his daughter Louise. You use the audio based interactions to find your way, avoid traps and confront dangerous enemies.

Play is of the hack-and-slash fighting variety as you experience the fantasy setting through the binaural sound. You move my holding and gesturing your finger on the screen to move through the 3D soundscape.

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.
