Fans of one of the most recent releases from studio Serellan LLC, will be pleased to hear that a new update has rolled out for Hotel Blind.
There are a couple of different important messages to be taken away from Hotel Blind and the main one being what it is like to live your life as a blind person and the predicaments that you would find yourself in, one of these being the struggles of waking up in a foreign hotel room with nothing to help you find your bearings. Hotel Blind was based on the experiences of Professor Ryan Knighton, a blind Canadian, as told in the This American Life episode, “Invisible Made Visible.”
With this in mind, Serellan LLC has added a voice over support option to allow you to become more immersed in the experience by supplementing the visual prompts. Christian Allen, the CEO and Creative Director says of the update, “Many of the folks who have played Hotel Blind have requested a more immersive, less text-based experience, and I think this update gives that to them. Hotel Blind is not necessarily about a wonderful gameplay experience, it is about experiencing what it is like for differently abeled people and the challenges they experience.”
