AudiOdyssey

AudiOdyssey is an experimental computer game designed to be accessible to both the visually impaired community and mainstream gamers. The user stars as Vinyl Scorcher, an up-and-coming DJ, on his quest to get club patrons dancing. Swinging the Nintendo Wii controller to the beat, Vinyl lays down the various component tracks of a song, and keeps the party jumping. If he does an especially good job, he can even freestyle! But beware - if dancers get too rowdy, they're likely to bump into the turntables, messing up Vinyl's tracks. Think you have what it takes?

AudiOdyssey was developed with four research goals:

  • The visually-impaired and the sighted can enjoy the same level and quality of gameplay
  • Navigate game's menus with ease and efficiency approaching that of conventional UIs
  • Create a fun and natural control scheme using the Wiimote
  • An engaging game that relies more on high quality audio than visuals
