Hi Guys! Welcome to the new forum! Hope it is everything you expected

it to be! With this thread I hope we can all introduce ourselves.
My name

is Richard, I live in Amsterdam (Holland, which is in Europe). Together with

Sander I am the webmaster of AudioGames.net and also the Admin of this

forum. I'm not visually impaired but I like audio games since they provide

a challenge that is much different than regular games (although I play video

games too). I'm currently researching game audio at the University of

Portsmouth.

That's all for now... what about you?

Hello

everyone. Most of you know me from the old forum, but in case we have any

newbes, I'll go ahead and give you the 411. My name is Holden and I live in

the United States. I'm a huge fan of audio games and like them very much.

I'm also into old type games like Fighting Fantasy and D and D and for

anyone who likes that type of stuff too, I have the address of a really good

web site. Try out
www.ffproject.com
and in another topic, let me know.

Richard, if you read this message, you might like to check this out and put

it in the games archive. See you all and happy gaming!

Hi,

I just made this a "sticky topic", meaning

that this topic will always be on top of all other topics. Hopefully all of

you new to this forum will introduce yourselves. And of course, also, all of

you who have already been around.

Greets,

Richard

Hi everyone,

I haven't done so yet. My name is Clement, well, my

actual name anyways. I am 13, and I've been blind since I was 3. My vision

started receeding due to some kinda unknown thing, well, unknown to me. I'm

a huge fan of accessible games, whether for the blind or sighted, I am also

a huge fan of fighting games, as jade, and a few others might know. Would

you happen to play Mortl Kombat Richard? Cause if you did, youy might wanna

review it. And, also, pardon the spelling, causwe I'm typing really fast.

regards,

Hi
I'd rather not give out real name if you don't mind but I'll say

this:
I'm 21, 22 in December. I started losing my sight around turning 16

and have been more or less without useful sight since being about

19.

Prior to sight loss I enjoyed mainstream games massively, and still

miss the complexity of strategy titles such as Civilisation and Master of

Orion.

I've spent 4 years studying software development, and am; always

have been; a total tech nut. I'd like to develop games, but I'm trying to

get together the resources to learn DX before I proceed further.

These

days you can find me on Alter Aeon or Warring Factions as Synapse. BTW

Warring Factions, mentioned in Audyssey, is now completely

free.
www.dentinmud.org/alter
www.war-facts.com

I'm also trying to get

hold of the e book version of the Shadowrun RPG core rules, I'm hoping to

be able to find some people to make a few sessions out of it

sometime.

BTW I'm on GMT, meaning I'm not on the same times as US

members... but my sleep's often quite funny so you might catch me at a

reasonable hour occasionally wink

this website greatly, and i am a big fan of this site.
p.s richard did you

best regards to all

hi, i'm archer, assassin's college counterpart, in that this is my nick

for my college laptop.
i have been visually impaired since age ten, it

receeded quickly after i banged my head on holiday. I am a medical miracle,

after the operation to save my sight i was totally blind, light, colour, i

couldn't see anything. Then one day i saw my bedroom light.
since then

i've trained my eyes and i can now see blurred images. i cannot see small

detail, but i can see light, movement, colours, and now move around my

college quicker than those with sight.
i am a great fan of audiogames, and

still to this day play on tekken 2 and mortal kombat trilogy.
best regards

to all.

Hi,

I'm Brian and I'm 23.  I've been into video games since I was

around 5.  I lost what little sight I had just before I turned 10, but I was

still determined to play normal video games.  I think the original Super

Mario Bros is the best game ever made, but in terms of audio games, my

favorite is Trupanum 2.

Hi, I'm James, 17.  I've been blind for all of my life minus six months. 

I "developed" Duck Hunter under Conspirasoft Entertainment which is in

hiatus (not sure if that's the right way to spell that).  I've been into

"regular" videogames most of my life, especially enjoying fighters such as

Mortal Kombat and the Street Fighter series as wellas Marvel Vs. Capcom and

the later superfast fighting games.  I was first introduced to audiogames

when I was seven and my grandfather got me PCS' Shooting Range and Mobius

Mountain; I especially liked the latter even before I had a screenreader.  I

got back into them in 2003 with Shades of Doom and the SL concept demo. 

I'm interested in computer science and have been programming since sixth

grade on and off - I've only taken one APCS course butwell that was teh

only one my school offered.  I'd like to develop some actual games but

really can't say when I will feel 100% motivated especially now since the

college process is taking over a fairly sized chunk of life.  Regardless I

think I can contribute something significant to this community, I just have

to really put effort into it.

Hi there! My name is Brett and I live in Denver, Colorado. I've been a

lurker on this site for some years and haven't really used the msg boards.

Anyway I'm 26 and have been blind since two. The first video game I ever

enjoyed was Pole Position. My first audio game was probably speak and spell

made by Texas Instruments. I started playing text adventure games when I was

about 11 or so. I've played most of the audio games out there. Now I live

in Denver and I am an access technology trainer and voiceover artist.


Thanks to everyone involoved in the production of this website. You're

doing a great thing keep it up!

Hello people.

this's obviously my first visit to the forum, yes!

I'm the Dreaded Newby! hopefully something which will change in time ;D.



As reguards me, I'm 23, and am a student at durham University in North

England, where I'm enjoying a break after finishing my Ma in philosophy.



Site wise, I'm registered blind, but I do have a small amount of vision

(how much I can't precisely say, never having had normal vision).

I've

always played main stream computer games, but sinse I have problems playing

games in a 3D perspective, sinse the release of the Playstation the amount

of games I can play has become rather limited.
Like several other people I

quite enjoy fighters (I've just bought Mortal Kombat Deadly alliance for my

Gamecube), but my main love in computer games is the 2D platform genre,

because of the amount of exploration such games involv. My favourite games

are probably the Metroid and Mega Man series (before they both went into

3D), and an old amigar classic called Turrican.

I only discovered audio

games very recently, I've been playing Interactive fiction aka text

adventures for a year or two now, but I only discovered audio games two

months ago. I'm a big fan as they allow me to play types of game I can't

normally ---- such as the first person stuff (I love Shades of Doom!). The

only thing i'm sad about is the lack of audio Rpg's, but i'll post about

that in another topic.

Ooopse! sorry about going on so long, it's an

occupational hazard of being a philosopher.

Hi tommy,

I believe you've seen my posts in other places, but sinse this is your intro I'll say hello formally here.

Btw, One thing I rather like about this board is the mix of nationalities, Canida, Hungary, Iran, the Us, and even a couple of people like myself from England (when I'm not up my ivory tower of course).
