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.

You should make a horror game like this, you cant see, but you can hear, it would be so scarry...and AWSOME. Also, where can I get the jig at the end of the game? :3

I have considered making a horror version of the game, just a bit busy with other projects at the moment, but I'll probably come back to it later.

The song is in the sound folder, if you still have the mod installed. but its just a small part at the end of a song called "I Don't Know All I Know" by admiral twin

This is the only game I can claim to have finished with my eyes closed. Awesome mod, and a great sense of humor. Very good, and original idea. Expertly executed! Great job on this.

Absolutely brilliant! I've always wanted to see it would be like as a blind person. Not only did I get my blind dreams satisfied! I also got some awesome Monty Python-esque humor out of it.

Thank you so much! It would be interesting next time to introduce possibilities of death, physical items (running into walls or trees or chairs or random people. The best way a blind person navigates is through touch, but if thats not a possibility, at least introduce some random objects to run into that identify the location. besides future possibilities, I'd say great job.

Keep it up!

Don't forget that the sequel should have the blind monk steal the holy hand grenade of antioch. :D
