For All To Play Launches Kickstarter for Grail to the Thief, a Blind Accessible Audio Game
Worcester, MA, April 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For All To Play is excited to announce the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for Grail to the Thief, an interactive audio adventure for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux that can be played using only sound, without the need for visuals. The game has been designed with the needs of the blind and visually impaired in mind but can be enjoyed by everyone. The game will deliver an exciting, immersive experience in which the player will always be fully aware of what is happening through the use of voice-overs, sound effects, ambient sound and music.
In Grail to the Thief, players make their choices through a conversation tree, eliminating the confusion and frustration that comes with traditional text adventure games, which require players to type in commands to progress. The game is a nostalgic throwback to childhood favorites such as Zork, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Day of the Tentacle, and Grim Fandango, and draws inspiration from old BBC radio dramas and the movie Time Bandits.
The game stars Hank Krang, a thief from the future, and his self-aware time machine, TEDI, as they go throughout time stealing priceless artifacts. In Grail to the Thief, Hank and TEDI travel to Arthurian times in search of the Holy Grail.
For All To Play has developed a browser based prototype of Grail to the Thief. The prototype requires Google Chrome or Opera and is accessible at foralltoplay.com/prototype. The funded game will be a standalone executable and will not require a web browser to play.
Grail to the Thief will be available as a DRM-free download for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux in August 2014.
