Description
Release date: September 9, 2014
Grail to the Thief is an interactive audio adventure for Windows, Mac 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. Our goal is to 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.

The game stars Hank Krang, a dirty thief from the near future, who recently had a self-aware time machine called the Time Excursion Digital Interface, or TEDI, fall into his lap after a poker game. He has decided to use this technology to go throughout time, stealing priceless artifacts. On his first adventure, Grail to the Thief, Hank travels to Arthurian times in search of the Holy Grail.

A demo of Grail to the Thief is available for download at IndieDB.

@ForAllToPlay That's great, thanks! I think this will be quite welcome for people wanting to really get immersed in the audio experience. Good luck with Greenlight!

@Jon After talking to our developer, he confirmed that he can add the option to hide/show text, and it will be in the final game. Thanks for the feedback!

There are plenty of visually impaired people out there that may never have given the idea of playing a _video_ game a second thought. This could be totally unique and entertaining experience for them. It might also encourage other developers to experiment with creating games for such an audience. Yes from me and good luck! My one request would be that the game includes an option for disabling text entirely if the player wants it, even for those that can see! For me, I know that I might be too tempted to just read the text faster than the audio plays. It would be nice to have the ability to force myself to listen to all the dialogue, to get the full intended experience. Or perhaps something like text only appears if the player hits a certain key, so they have some control over it.

Guys think to the blind people too, it's not Newgrounds stuff.

Seems out of place to see this on Steam, but I miss these kinds of games. Leave it all to the imagination, get a little retro. Approved+
