BlindSide, an Audio game for iOS devices

This is an excellent 3d audio game for sighted and visually impaired persons alike.

The game is full of adventure and will almost certainly cause you to forget where you are.

Unfortunately, the game only works on the iPad 2, the new iPad and the iPhone 4s.

From the web site:

BlindSide is an audio adventure game, set in a fully-immersive 3d world you’ll never see. Put on headphones, hold your iPhone, and face the direction you want to go. Listen as the world rotates around you and explore the darkness.

You play as Case, an assistant professor who wakes up blind, to find his city destroyed and mysterious creatures devouring people. Will you and your girlfriend be able to find your way without sight? How will you escape? Run for your life, save the girl, and uncover the mystery of the apocalypse–all in the dark!

BlindSide was inspired by co-creator Aaron Rasmussen’s temporary blindness as a result of an explosion in high school chemistry.
