NOTE: THE MEDALS DON'T CURRENTLY WORK. WE'RE FIXING IT.

THE GAME HAS AN AUTOSAVE SYSTEM. YOU DON'T NEED TO BEAT IT IN ONE SITTING.

EDIT: Thanks for frontpage!

A blind man finds himself in a dark and treacherous place, he follows the mysterious cries for help, oblivious to what lies beyond.

Blind is a dark puzzle platformer where the player character is blind. You have to rely on your 'sonar' and a ball that you can throw to map out the level, avoid spikes, and get to that mysterious cry for help at the end of the level.

INSTRUCTIONS

Arrows or WASD = Walk & Climb
Space = Jump
P = Pause
Mouse = Throw Ball (hold button to charge throw)
Q or Shift = Flip Switch
R = Return to Room Entrance

PS
Sorry for the stupid dashes in the title. The name 'Blind' was already taken.

Game is broken for me.

I can't get past level 12, both of the switches activate the spike ceiling, but the walkthrough video shows that one of them shouldnt. I am confused.

Wow..

I admit, the spikes were frustrating, but the walkthrough at least makes up for it in case one is frustrated.

But a powerful message indeed. The shortcomings of the disabled, even if they find ways to overcome such issues, they are still weak in some ways. But this man is blind in another manner as well. His compassion, though good, made him concentrate too much on the cries for help without being aware of his environment (Dumpster for example. Even a blind person would notice his/her surroundings, the main character just walked past them). The blindness in his mindset is what caused his unfortunate ending.

Which brings this next question: How was this man truly blind?

Artsy

There has been another game with a concept like this but I can't remember the name. Anyways, the game is very well designed as far as art goes, but throwing the ball could use a bit of work and perhaps a little more help finding your way around. Good game if you have the patience though.

Nice Game

I love the whole blind concept. I really felt i was walking blindly through this game.

One thing to note: Occasionally I ran into a bug which prevented me from shooting the ball at all, not sure what caused it but this left me somewhat even more dependent on the sonar mechanism.

Improvements: Perhaps the ability to see the levels without being blind once you beat the game? Would be fun to see all the levels and where I've been stumbling around 21 levels would look like!
