Welcome to my little corner of the blind gaming world where I will post video reviews of blind accessible games and links where you can download them..
I grew up playing my fair share of video games on consoles like Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, 32X, Sega CD,Sega Saturn, Playstation, and computer games like Wolfenstein 3D and Red Alert Command And Conquer, Tom Clancey’s Rainbow Six and many others.
Once I lost my sight in 2003, playing video games wasn’t even a thought until I did a simple search on Google for blind gamers and was I surprised. I decided to jump back in and share all that I found regarding the blind gaming world. I am totally blind so the amount of games out there for totally blind gamers are very limited and nowhere near what I remember how games were when I lost my sight like GTA San Andreas or Vice City.
As I discover new games released for totally blind gamers, I will post them here along with any video gameplays or reviews I put out which you can find on my YouTube channel under the Blind Gamer Geek Out playlist.
My primary platform is Mac OS X, but I do game on a WIN10 PC as well and encourage anyone to let me know of accessible games they have played or want me to review. Simply email me and let me know.
Mac OS X
All games mentioned in this heading are tested on Mac OS X Catalina.
A Blind Legend
In this medieval based game, you play as a blind father guided by his daughter to find and rescue his kidnapped wife by the evil King. Fight against thieves, mythical beasts, witches, knights, and even the King himself.
Circus Master Revenge
Circus Masters Revenge is an interesting twist of a game. Based off the audio defense game, Mental Vision Games set out to make their own version in which you play a wondering blind man who stumbles upon a circus where you find yourself attacked then forced to do battle against the circus masters minions.
Life Simulator is a fun little addicting game that you have to constantly be attentive of and take care of your character as you develop your skills, education, and work skills whether you choose a path of business or crime.
A Hero’s Call
A Hero’s Call which is a really fun little RPG that is not so little. This fully interactive exploration game with turn based battles will have you playing for hours on end. AHC has a good story line and great sound. Here is Out Of Sight’s video trailer for AHC.
Clash Of Light Sabers
Clash Of Light Sabers is a Star Wars based game with all the sounds of the movies and scores. Battle against other Jedi in training or take on the Sith in battle mode or survival mode. As recently featured live on my YouTube channel, Clash Of Light Sabers is a Konsta Ranta creation and is actually a fun little audio game. Star Wars based, you can play against AI bots in battle mode or play in survival mode across 5 locations like Coruascant, Hoth, Tatooine, Degoba, Star Destroyer, and you can also unlock future elements. Stay tuned soon for the new online version releasing soon.
Konsta has given me special permission to allow you to download Clash Of Light Sabers right here. Just click Clash Of The Sabers to download.
Grand Theft Auto 5
Thanks to Liam Ervin we now have a Mod so that totally blind gamers can play GTA5! This is very exciting and shows the potential for future triple A games to take note that yes indeed their games can be made accessible for all to play. Check out Liam’s Mods here.

The State Of Audio Gaming And Where It’s Going
How To Play During Live Streams
A great new feature only available to my live viewers is the ability to play games with each other or against one another during live streams. It is fun and easy and a great way to support my channel as it grows.
So, how do you play? It’s simple. Type any of the following commands in the chat to start your adventures.
To gather your Sith brotherhood together and battle the Jedi Knights, type “!heist 100” Note the number amount can be any amount up to 1000 and you must have the Galactic Credits to cover your entry.
How Many Credits Do You Have? Simply type “!points” to find out how poor you really are. Don’t worry though, every minute you watch my live show, the more Galactic Credits you will receive plus periodically I will award all live viewers extra Credits.
What other games are there? You can play other games like “!gamlbe”, “!slots”, “!8ball”, as well as “!duel” against other viewers. To duel, just include the viewers name after the chat command “!duel” followed by the credit amount you wish to bet.
You can also interact with other viewers but I will keep these commands secret as easter eggs and let you try and figure them out. Hint: try hugging another viewer.
