My Global Game Jam ’14 Submission

Bat Sagas: An Auditory Adventure

http://globalgamejam.org/2014/games/bat-sagas

This was my submission for the 2014 Global Game Jam. The theme this year was “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” Somehow I ended up at a game where you can’t really see anything at all. You take on the role of a bat (which by the way bats aren’t really blind in real life) and fly through the forest using only audio feedback to navigate the trees.

It was a fun challenge to build a game with no visuals and I also discovered an entire genre of games for the visually impaired or just those who want to be immersed in an auditory experience.

The game is far from perfect, but for my first game jam project I’m quite proud of the results.
