Gaming is powerful because of it's capacity for empathy—you can virtually walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Most games use this to put you in the shoes of someone powerful as wish fulfillment, giving you the ability to take a thousand bullets or blow up space aliens. But what if a game took away something instead?
Blind is a game where you see the world through a blind person's eyes. The world is "seen" from a first-person perspective where, instead of visual objects, you see words that represent the sounds the character is hearing. Your character can still move around in standard first-person controls however, which makes you really feel like you're moving through the game blind and navigating by sound. It's an odd feeling, to say the least.
The game is a story-based game, it's a short but good story with 6 endings. There are a few choices to make here and there, but since there are only 6 endings, the game isn't too complicated. The entire thing probably takes 3-4 minutes to play through, tops. To describe more would really spoil the experience.
Why You Should Check This Out: Blind is a game that tries to put you in the shoes of a blind person, and tells you a simple but moving story about that person. With 6 endings and an average playthrough of 3-4 minutes, it's worth playing through several times to see them all. A game that takes the standard first-person view and stands it on it's head, it's a fresh take on what a game can let you experience.
