I made this as an English learning activity for the students I teach at the Kobe City School for the Blind, in Japan. It features a lot of voice acting by one of those students.

This is playable by people with full vision as well of course, and has a "lights off" mode for those who want to experience what it'd be like for my students with vision impairments to play this game. It's pretty challenging.

10 levels, 3 game modes, 2 game options. This is a puzzle game, and a teaching tool, not an action arcade type thing, so don't expect anything overly fast. Also, the graphics have been kept simple in order to maximise visibility, so don't expect anything overly flashy.

- Use arrow keys to move your character.
- Run into walls in "Practice" or "Challenge" modes for directions from your dog, or stand still for a few seconds.
- Click the screen to skip cutscenes or to ask your dog where you are (what building is nearest to you).

Great job!

Great job, I tried doing something my teacher taught me a while back, put a tissue over your face, It makes you see like a blind person, so you can only see light.

united states of america . blamed for being in japanese

kennsj responds:

Don't blame the game for being Japanese. It's not the game's fault. I made it that way.

And I think I see someone else who needs to "lear" English.

We speak English

Who else thinks the dog should speak this chinese stuff and the human English =D Also nothing ground breaking or new or entertaining for that matter. Try again...

kennsj responds:

Well, I didn't make this with Newgrounds, or English-speaking students even, in mind. I did at least put some English subtitles on the JAPANESE (*not* Chinese) parts of the cutscenes for you.

Maybe you should try reading the author's comments again.

I think that you really bring awareness to the difficulties of the blind by letting us try this. Awsome game.

kennsj responds:

Thank you. I'm glad you got something out of it.
