Gaming without graphics: Letting sound tell a story

Chris Charlton writes: Then along comes Papa Sangre on the iPhone -- a game that creates an interactive space without graphically representing it at all.

Similar in concept to an obscure early Xbox Live Indie game In the Pit, Papa Sangre has the player trapped in a mysterious netherworld while assisting lost souls, avoiding monsters, and finding the way to the realm's sinister titular ruler. Your character is blind, which means the game is playable only through a pair of stereo headphones. Surprisingly well-done voice acting combined with the distance and direction of environmental sounds warn you of impending threats, guide you to maze exits, and reveal more about the mysterious Sangre and your quest.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds cool. I might have to give this a shot.
