'Video-less' video game developed for blind players
Creating a video game bereft of any actual video might seem like an unusual idea.
But the concept is being adopted by some games developers to help make the industry more accessible to blind and visually-impaired people.
"Video-less" games rely on binaural technology to build 3D worlds made solely of sound, where users must rely on their aural senses to navigate through levels.
The latest game of this kind has been launched in France by digital studio Dowino.
They asked a number of blind and visually impaired people to try out their "Blind Legend" game, which is due for release worldwide next year.
