I'm really sorry for all the new threads. I've been talking way to much. This is the last one for a while, I promise.

I just thought you all might be interested in this game on Kickstarter. The idea is that you're a blind girl lost in some kind of cave system trying to hide from giant monsters. The only way you can see the environment is through sound; when you make sound by jumping, throwing things, water dripping or whatever else, that area is lit up. It's a little hard to explain, but there's a trailer here:

I played the prototype version. there are a couple bugs, since, you know, it's a prototype, but it's an interesting game, worth a look. The monsters are creepy mainly because you never get a really good look at them. Anyway, here's the kickstarter page:

:pThat doesn't look like a fun game, I mean if the girl is blind and she has to make noise to know where she is going, Wouldn't that just let the monster know where she is. The monster could just follow the noise find her and eat her. There end of game. monster won.

It's a little more complicated than that. If you make noise when the monster's around, yes it will come after you. But it it also makes noise every time it steps, roars, sniffs, that kind of thing. It's quite freaky. And you can still move when there's no noise, you just can't see.

Okay, so I tried it and basically have never been more terrified or disoriented in a game in my life.
I love it. :D
