Blind Trust is a two-player, co-op game where a deaf character leads a blind character through a low-poly, fantasy island using binaural audio.

We are 12 engineering, art, and production graduate students in the University of Utah's Entertainment Arts & Engineering making our thesis video game.

We stumbled across autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos on YouTube and fell in love with the idea of making a game centered around binaural audio (i.e. audio that relays not only location but also distance).

We iterated through many different game play ideas but were really inspired by a prototype where a second player could provide the binaural audio cues to the first player, instead of the environment. From there, we worked towards our current version of the game - a two-player experience where one player must provide binaural audio cues to the other to communicate, traverse environmental obstacles, and destroy enemies to get to an objective.
