A rather new company called Out of Sight Games is currently working on their first title: A heros call.
A heros call is a huge RPG with some features which might set a new standard for gaming in the blind community. One of Out of Sight Games goals is to hopefully bring blind and normally sighted gamers more together by adding visual graphics to the game. In this way, both blind and sighted gamers will be able to enjoy the same game.
An other awesome feature is the games translation system. Google translate is build into the game, which means the game can be translated into all the 91 different languages which Google translate currently supports. As most people know this is not a perfect translation, but indeed a very useful feature for all the people who don't speak english.
The Kickstarter campaign reached its original goal in just two days, but more money are indeed very much welcome. Here are the stretch goals:
Stretch Goal #1 - $3,700 (Funded) - Dialogue Expansion : Meeting this benchmark will allow us to add significantly to the dialogue base, making the game deeper, more expansive, and more dynamic. And guess what? You guys have already gotten us there!
Stretch Goal #2 - $4,900 - Graphics : Reaching this funding goal will allow us to commission terrain and UI graphics to bring the visual presentation of the game to a new level.
Stretch Goal #3 - $5,300 - Sound Upgrade : After improving the graphics, this next goal would allow us to purchase additional sound assets to diversify and refine the sounds that make up the world of the game.
Stretch Goal #4 - TBA : We're still doing some research to get a handle on the cost of the next thing we would want to do - more information coming soon!
