Here’s another date to add to your VR diary; intriguing puzzle game Blind is launching on September 18th.
The game, which is developed by Tiny Bull Studios, has been on our radar for some time thanks to its promising premise. You step into the shoes of a young woman that awakens in an unknown room and discovers she can no longer see. It’s your job to guide her through this new world using echolocation which will reveal the outlines of the rooms around you for a short amount of time. You’re given a walking stick that you can tap to get a sense of the world around you, though use it too much and you’ll be overwhelmed.
We went hands-on with Blind earlier this year and came away hopeful for an empathetic adventure, though the black and white color scheme can be draining. Either way, it’s a unique take on the puzzle genre that could give us an insight into what it’s like to live without sight. That alone will make it worth a look.
Blind will launch on PlayStation VR (PSVR), Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for $24.99 with a physical version coming to Europe on September 28th and later on in the US. It’s also coming to Open-Source Virtual Reality hardware because apparently that’s still a thing.
