Are you being forced to stay home due to the COVID-19 crisis? Are you looking for something enjoyable with your sighted family / friends?
Gift Ten industry presents the early access version of a new universally-designed audio game: Audio party pack!
This game features three challenging minigames which can be played with audio and visuals. Cooperate or compete with your sighted peers and have fun.
Notes:
- This is an early access version and it's open for feedbacks.
- The early access version is completely free.
- The game is downloadable on Steam.
- Supported languages are Japanese, English and Chinese.
- Windows and MacOS X are supported.
- This game does not support online play.
Here is the overview of each game quoted from the steam page:
GIRIGIRI HARVEST: Pay close attention to each sound as you compete for the highest score!
Pulling turnips from the field will earn you points, however some of the turnips are actually Screaming Mandrakes. Different Mandrakes have different sounds.
If you hear the same Mandrake scream three times, you will score zero points for the round.
Players should listen closely to each other and keep moving forward until the very last minute to collect more points!
It’s a simple but surprisingly exciting game.
BURUBURU SHELL: Work together to choose the same themed sound!
According to the question, choose a sound that you think is easy to convey, such “sounds like…“, or “feels like…“. If the other player can then guess the same sound, the stage is cleared!
Work together to get all the questions right!
DOKIDOKI SUBMARINE: Avoid obstacles, find enemies, fire torpedoes!
Players are divided into two roles: A “Sonar player” who uses sound to search for enemies and obstacles, and a “Pilot player” who steers the submarine and fires/detonates torpedoes. Work together to clear the stage.
The Sonar player puts a speaker to his or her ear and tells the pilot the location of an enemy or obstacle.
Using information from the Sonar player, the Pilot fires a torpedo and detonates it directly over the enemy!

This is a bit limiting if there's no online play, isn't it? Not meaning to put this down or anything, but the age of lan parties and people sitting around the coffee table with their ds's synced up to play mario cart together is long passed.

@3, not really, some people love tabletop games for example. if you can get members of your household all playing together it's a good social experience which in these times is important.

I wonder who made the chinese translation?

“If you are not united,” Jamuka said in a low voice, “you can be broken by those of no importance, just like a single arrow. If you unite, you will be as solid as the five arrows and no person will break you.”

Hey cool. Gonna try this out. And I agree with @4

If this post was helpful, amusing or what have you, why not thumb it up?

I agree with @4 and @3 I still play games that are local multi player.

2020-05-17 21:56:46

I agreed with 3 here. Not everyone that have family sit down and play game with them.

I have to confess, I really do miss being able to play games locally. It's getting to the point where mainstream games dont bother with it anymore, and audiogames being primarily pc based crossed that line long ago, so this is pretty cool! The people who would be most opposed to local play are the ones who dont have anyone to play with, or prefer other like minded individuals who are not on hand to play locally, but let's not forget those on the other side of the spectrum, shall we? I am of the opinion that local multiplayer will always have a place in gaming culture for as long as it remains a social hobby, and in my 30 years of gaming, that social aspect has yet to vanish.

@10 instead of going "bleh, bleh" at me, and disregarding the fact that I specifically said I don't want to shit on this game, why don't you point me to that post where I said "we have nothing?"

@12, he's always like that. He even accused me of confessing that I am racist, so who knows what he has on you, better watch out!

wow! this sounds like an amazing idea! I will try it out as well, and if I can make a small donation, I will too.
Of course I do have fun with family a lot... we have brailled cards  that I bought for playing all sort of stuff, and I also got a hard plastic cricket ball that we can use in the pool or for whatever other kind of play
The only thing missing is a real life audio table tennis adaptation lol
but this...oh this, sounds fantastic. Especially because the minigames described can be for varied ages and knowledge levels. I am a fan of the games that blind and sighted could play together, in whatever way, I tried to get a post started on it long ago and this definitely goes to the collection.
if there can be a way to translate it to spanish, I am also all up for it
