MiNDSiGHT is an interactive audio adventure which uses binaural recording techniques to tell an immersive superhero story purely by sound.
Immerse yourself in the role of blind protagonist Ethan Lewis as he embarks on a journey with his faithful sidekick Alix to rescue his sister from the maniacal villain, Dexter. On the way, he, and you, will have to overcome challenging audio-based puzzles to reach the roof of Dexter's headquarters and save his sister.
MiNDSiGHT is controlled entirely by simply swiping up, down, left, or right on the screen, and plays out like a combination between a radio drama and a choose-your-own-adventure novel, allowing you to solve fun and challenging puzzles using nothing but your ears, mind, and reflexes!
This game was created as part of a degree thesis as an educational exploration into the potential for delivering rich, interactive drama using conventional stereo audio enriched with binaural recording techniques.
I really loved this game. The vocals are really clear and it's fun to try and hear all the little noises to get through the challenges. I will say though, once I finished the game, it said "Congratulations, you've reached the end of Mindsight." Then it just loops the ending scene, plays a song, says the line, and continues like that forever. Is it supposed to do that? Is there more explained at the ending? Anyways, it's a great game. PS, to the people who say it doesn't explain how to play, upon opening the game, when it says swipe up or down to start over or continue, it also says swipe left or right for more on the makers or more info on how to play. Hope that helps :)
I rather enjoyed this game, it is a refreshing change to see another game that doesn't worry about fancy graphics, and focuses more on a good story. Playing this, I was able to close my eyes and visualize everything in my head, which I thought was nice. I just wish there was a bit more story in the game. It is interesting, but rather short. I think you guys should make a second installment, I am sure there is another villain they could fight, and more puzzles to be solved.
This has probably one of the best ideas for an interactive audio game. The only thing is that I wish that this would have been made by a legit company with actual funds.
This would have been literally 100x better with more funding, actual actors, and a lot longer storyline than 20 minutes.
I was mad that it was only that long to beat the game but I enjoyed it. Sell this idea to a big company please.
