The Blind Monk's Society is five week project in Navigation. Featuring Audio only navigation set in a Monty-Python-esk World of the Blind Monks.  You will need to use your headphones to take the first stumbling steps as a blind person and eventually learn how to walk blindly with confidence. You will meet many Colorful characters on your quest to help the Society and learn to SEE with your EARS.  This mod is available for Download Right HERE.


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.

That was the best 15 minutes of gameplay I've had in a long while! Excellent work, very well done. My only complaint (that moved it from a 10 to a 9 out of 10) was the fact that it rather leaves you hanging at the end there. It would be nice to have some credits (or something) to mark the end of the game. Actually, what I would really have liked to do was be able to watch a recording of myself playing through the game afterwards, perhaps from a third person perspective.

Yeah i think it was unless the monk lost his tongue :p Shame you couldnt be told that though and couldnt find the other monks after the jog, just the bell and the water, but great concept, very very original and a must have mod!

Wow, this mod was absolutely awesome. I had a badday today but the end of this game made up for it, I almost cried. The music at the end really made me appreciate sound and the ability to hear. Just goes to show how amazing all the little sounds are in life and how much more powerful music must be to the blind.

Haha, thanks for making this, thanks a lot! It honestly gave me a better outlook on life XDZ
