And Now A few Words From our Great Leader Brother Pancy Fants:

Greetings and Salutations occularly deficent masses of the world, I am here with Glorious News! You no longer need to fear the blindness that ails you, you will learn to see again, With Your Ears! Now I know what you are Saying, "Mr. Fants, How much is this going to cost me?" With Eye transplants running you thousands of dollars you may expect to pay $1,000.00 for my services. Does that sound like a deal? I don't think so, What If I offerd the teachings of this Course for the ridiculously low price of 4 easy installments of $29.95? Can you beat that kind of Value? You can... Well...  Umm how about if I offer you all my teachings and Gaurentee that you will learn to SEE with your EARS all you have to do is provide us, The Blind Monks Society, with a few services to be named at a later date in an undisclosed location? You agree? FANTASTIC! I can't wait to meet you at the Monastary of The Blind Monks Society.

I'm looking forward to the Oculus Rift support. This will add completely new dimensions to a once old gem. Keep up the amazing work!

Would love to play this but it simply won't start. Tried through steam and Desura. At one point I got to see a valve logo before it crashed. After installing through Desura it crashes before I even get a chance to see the logo. Shame.

I'll have to try this again with headphones, the sound doesn't seem to be reproduced accurately on my 5.1 system in source, I'm going to blame the engine, as I use my 5.1 speakers to hear exactly where enemies are in a lot of games. Also the player's footsteps are a tad loud.

There ought to be more games like this; sometimes I want to play a game but also want to rest my eyes.

the biggest problem i had was even though it sounded like i was right next to someone i wasnt, i had to run about like an idiot for ages several times, once i had to follow the stream it became impossible because i crossed it several times and lost my place and direction; the constant walking noise didnt help because you couldnt tell if you were running into a wall or not.

what would be interesting to see for the person who has just completed the game is a topdown picture of the map and the route/path they have taken

Fantastic other than the ending which was a bit confusing, I kept trying to follow the bell after the jig but never got there... now I'm here I see you weren't mean't to from other comments. Maybe the end could have been clearer... but other than that absolutely fantastic.

The Jig marks the end of the game, right? 'Cause I spent a few minutes just listening to the ambient noises afterwards, wondering if the Blind Monks had abandoned me...
