The ding sound will happen after I bump into a wall a few times.  The tutorial only had 4 parts, if I remember correctly.  The last part that it had was the part about finding the birds.  After that, when I interacted with complete tutorial, it simply went directly into game mode.

There are 5 different tutorials in this order:
- Introduction
- How to use menus
- Basic navigation
- Wall navigation
- Maze navigation

There is a 6th map but I haven't tested to see if it's actually reached; the other maps have been tested outside of the maze map's completion. In the last version I uploaded yesterday everything was working. After the tutorial is complete it will go straight to game mode.

Hay, when do you predict that the full release would come out and would it be free for windows just like  brailemon?
Kind regards,

This is an original game, not a port of a pre-existing one, and Daigonite's putting their heart into it. It's going to probably be paid, as all good original games should be.

So an update:

Bad news: I have to redo the engine; the engine is pretty much a mess.

Also I have no job. I had to quit since I have chronic illness that has yet to be diagnosed. It is the source of most of the problems I had in the last few years, and it's obvious that working in an office makes it much worse. I was having 2 migraines a day. I needed to quit.

Good news: I'm safe and I have a lot of time on my hands. I'll probably not start with the engine rewrite until December, but I want to start work on an accessibility extention that I can sell to other indies so they can start implementing easier accessibility into their games as well. I have absolutely every intention on continuing this game but it's very hard now that I am sick and unable to work outside of remote work. I'll probably be doing small work here and there but not much. Thankfully with a fully functioning prototype I can't imagine it taking too long to rebuild but I'm also in the process of rebuilding my life so meh.

Honestly these last 4-5 years have been a long line of FOR FUCK'S SAKE over and over again. I think I'm just tired now.

Hay dagonite, i know this is not, uh, the best place to ask this but cause  the brailemon post hasn't been updated since like 2015 so i just wanted to ask this that when i try to run brailemon on windows 7 it says failed to create direct 3d 9X device. i used to run it on win 8.1 but worked fine. and ya, just wanted to say if you could make like a topic  for us blind guys on asking about where to find stuff and how to proseed like, getting HM 5 cut  cause  we obviously  can't understand the mainstreem tutorials. no offense intended, just  a sugestion and so plz try to figure out  this problem of mine, really want to play this fantastic game again!  dude i was so excited  when i found out about this game, i used to get so geleous of my friends playing pokemon i myself being a great fan, i just  felt like (dont tell them) knocking them along with their pc on their but and then beeting them up lol.

Well I hope you get feeling better Rachael. I suppose I ought to give this one a try since I love turn-based RPG's and think we need more of them in our market. What's the current download link? I know it's been posted here but this topic is eleven pages long LOL.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

LOL yeah I eventually figured that out. While I do like the concept I definitely find navigation rather confusing.

Yep, it has, you know, kind of accessablity issues at the moment but it will get better, the thing is that dagonite was working on mainstreem part of the game, and now this blind thing will get better soon. She is workin on our part of the story now.

Well hat and I do remember her saying she's been having health problems. That would certainly get in the way of development. But as for me I get to a certain point and can't seem to progress further. I can manage to recruit Mark but for the life of me I can't seem to find and recruit the third character.

@ briyan
First of all, you can't progress cause the game isn't built farther  than that, its not complete, and secondn of all, ya, the third mical is difficult to find kind of a pain in the but. i sugest you from the last map, where you are blocked to go farther, try to manage to go forward somehow and you would soon end up in his house suddenly, though, even i dont know how.

Hey there everyone, thought I would provide an update.

Life is really tough right now because of a lot of personal BS I'd rather not get into right now but I can't work and I have no income which really blows, but I am being taken care of right now by good friends who are helping me get back on my feet.

The good news is that things are definitely getting better, AND that I've started to rebuild the new Colors Chromatics engine. It's much more well organized and modular meaning that I can kick out updates much faster, and it will be much easier to debug as well. I'm not super far into development since I only started a few days ago but I've already created menus with TTS already and I'll be adding a few new features as well.

It also now supports keybinding (although I probably won't build a menu for keybinding blind accessibility shortcuts since there are so many of them, but I'll probably still have them loaded from a file for customization).

Aarush, your issue sounds directX related so make sure you have directX9 installed correctly, this is because it was made in an older version of game maker. I can't do any modifications to the code, it's so messed up that it's basically pure spaghetti.

Hello guys,

I'm expecting an early pre alpha release on the 23rd. I'd really appreciate it if I can get feedback with the new accessibility engine. The engine is very well built so any issues can be dealt with easily and quickly and I want to make sure this component of the engine is working well.

I will not have any tutorials in the game due to it being pre-alpha, so please feel free to ask questions about any sort of concerns with what to do or what something means. Communication is key to being able to really make this thing succeed.

As a reminder I'm no longer working on braillemon. My goal is to try to build a scalable model for blind accessibility with navigation. Feedback is of the essence. Thanks everyone. See you in 2 weeks.
