I've been browsing the audio games this community has given life to over the years and I am pleased and impressed. There is definitely a wide variety of games to satisfy the different types of experiences gamers are looking for.
Before I lost my vision, I enjoyed collectable card / deck building games like Magic the Gathering and Yugioh, though right as my vision was fading fast I discovered Hearthstone, and that's what really inspired me.
Sadly, I cannot play Hearthstone. It was just outside the realm of feasible with magnification options and how graphically intense it is, not to mention the strict time limits on your turn.
I passionately want to bring an experience like Hearthstone to the blind community.
For better or for worse, I am no programmer despite my great respect and fascination of coding languages.
Neither am I wealthy enough to fund a project like this through the usual channels, as I imagine is the case for most of us with great vision loss.
What I do have is incredible enthusiasm and inspiration to make this a reality, what I believe is a very compelling beginning to a magical setting rich with characters and atmosphere, and a card combat system for it to take place in.
I don't believe this could be done without a team. I'm unsure whether the nature of our audio gaming community leads to a lot of people working on projects for the sheer desire to put them out into the world, or if it is more common that projects are sustained through funding on platforms like Kickstarter.
Regardless, please do let me know if this is something you are interested in playing, or even better if it is something you're interested in helping come to light. I have a lot of game specific ideas brewing, but I don't want to post them publicly just yet for I think it would be unfair to flaunt something that could easily change once there are more chefs in the kitchen, so to speak.
I'm proud to be part of this community of breaking down barriers and having fun.
