Mists of Audazzle is live on KickStarter to raise development funds http://kck.st/1PvCXtd.
“The Mists of Audazzle” is a social narrative and fantasy gaming network to connect sighted and visually impaired gamers through role-playing and turn-based storytelling. It will empower visually impaired gamers to be in the driver’s seat, design their own games and decide how the story unfolds via their in game fantasy characters. Gamers will act on behalf of their fantasy persona to create stories within Mists and find new ways to communicate and overcome social isolation. Audazzle Ltd. is a start-up founded in 2014 by Selwyn and Marie Lloyd, the parents of Daisy, a girl who lost her eyes to cancer at the age of two. Daisy soon lost her confidence and self-esteem as she was left out of games at school, in the playground and even at home. However, Audazzle is not only about the Visually Impaired. More than 10% of the UK population suffers from varying degrees of social isolation. Lowering that percentage is their ultimate quest and “The Mist of Audazzle” is their weapon.
