It’s the first-ever mobile action-adventure game without video – where ears replace eyes!
Discover the original, innovative sensory experience of binaural 3D sound.
HEADPHONES ARE COMPULSORY!
AUDIO GAME FULLY ACCESSIBLE TO BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE
Your eyes will be of no help.
So close them, sharpen your hearing and your blade…
And embark on an epic, perilous rite of passage.
How do you play?
Put on your headphones and use your smartphone’s touchscreen like a joystick:
- to move around freely;
- to fight using your sword;
- to defend yourself and protect yourself with your shield during epic fights;
- to repel your enemies and perform combos!
Live the adventures of Edward Blake, the famous blind knight! Guided by your daughter Louise, you must find your way and avoid the many traps that lie in store in the High Castle Kingdom, while confronting dangerous enemies!
This serious game is fully accessible to visually impaired people, and is aimed at anyone who’s eager for an original, immersive sensory experience through a ground-breaking video game. And because the player is the character, it will help raise public awareness of this kind of disability.
It is free to download and was co-created thanks to support from a community of fans who helped with the crowdfunding campaign (www.ulule.com/a-blind-legend) and in a co-production with France Culture, a Radio France station.
This hack-and-slash game, with a heroic-fantasy flavour, harnesses the innovative technology of binaural sound, which delivers a gripping 3D soundscape and brings characters and actions vividly to life around the player – as if they were actually in the game!
“An interesting and enjoyable experience, something worth trying even if you're not visually impaired.”
Next Power Up:
“It's probably one of the most cleverly designed titles I've experienced in quite some time.”
“A Blind Legend is going to be one heck of an experience.”
“I would recommend that anyone who is interested should download the game and give it a try.”
“The game is worth your attention if you want to try something different for a change.”
“The unique take of this game is that you do not need a screen to play, just headphones.”
“Take a shot in the dark and give A Blind Legend a chance. You may be surprised at what you find when you are not looking.”

Ratings and Reviews
This game is good
This game is enjoyable and fun and is better than a lot of audio games
most definitely recommended
This is a good example of when a developer has obviously put quite a lot of thought and effort into ensuring the game is accessible for non-sighted gamers
and has got it right. Whilst this game does not introduce anything truly revolutionary in terms of game play mechanics or story, it does have solid gameplay mechanics, generally very good voice acting and a suitably emmersive sound design, that work well as well as an interesting if not all that unique storyline.
Given the game is free to download it is most definitely worth trying out and highly recommended.
Excellent game,I’ve always wanted an audio fighting game...would be great if a volume 2 of a blind legend would be made with the father gets kidnapped...all in all a great game
