Building a game for blind and sighted gamers in Max


    Nov 23 2011 | 12:20 am
    Hello everyone! I'm building a game called Rock Vibe for blind and sighted gamers using Max. It uses vibrations instead of a screen to tell players when and which buttons to press on a Rock Band instrument, MIDI controller or computer keyboard. It's currently on Kickstarter in hopes of getting funded, and I was hoping the kind Cycling community could help me get the word out and/or donate. Donations start at $1 and rewards are available, even for people who donate $1. If the game is successful on Kickstarter, I'll be donating some to schools, centers for the blind and families.
    Here's a link to the page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rupa211/1652913171 There's a video and a full description. Also, feel free to leave me comments/suggestions for the game. I'm always looking to improve things and make the people happy :)
    Also, I'll be looking for game testers if funding is successful, so feel free to put your foot forward if you'd like to test it in the future. The game is located in Mountain View, CA right now.
    Anyway, thanks for reading!! And patch away!

      Hi Rupa,
      Great project, very ambitious and very human! I will keep myself updated on your project and of course, try to donate some money along the way!
      Also, consider putting this page on the Projects page too, you'll definetely have a better audience!
