The entire game is experienced through your ears. You're blindfolded and going against traffic. Cars rushing past, angry drivers yelling at you. Cops on your tail. And a sadistic madman on the phone. Can you do it? Play as Donnie, trying to make a quick buck in a scientific study but quickly finding himself in over his head, cuffed to the wheel and driving blindfolded against traffic. Plus he's late for dinner with Grandma.

    Blind Drive is a masterpiece. I haven't come across many games which can take your breath away in the first few minutes as this one did. I had a single session of almost 2 hours playing this bad boy before I even realised how much time had passed. Blind is very addicting and it's almost impossible to find any flaws with it. I played it on the Easy mode and I'm definitely going all the way to Blindfold mode to claim moral victory over the game. I highly recommend you to go show some love to Blind Drive and the devs behind this beauty.

    While Blind Drive‘s premise is incredibly simple, it’s immediately addicting and the excellent narrative will keep you glued to the screen from beginning to end. You might be going into this adventure blind, but you won’t be disappointed.

    Blind Drive is unlike anything else out there at the moment. It’s unique, innovative and hopefully the start of something new. As a proof of concept, this game demonstrates that it’s possible to create an absorbing, exciting experience based purely on sound. As a game in its own right, it’s thrilling, funny and a triumph of audio game design.

    Blind Drive is definitely something new, surprising and fun. It can get a bit repetitive, but it’s a game you need to check out if you’re looking for something different.

    Blind Drive is like no game I've ever played before, which, having played video games for the last thirty years, is certainly saying something. Lo-Fi People has delivered one of the most compelling and plainly weird video game experiences of 2021. Your ears will love this game.

    An audio based arcade racer, that’s a bit too simple but with lots of fun. A unique blend of an interesting premise with a “Twilight Zone” vibe and an excellent, absurd and sarcastic writing.

    Arguably one of the most creative concepts for a video game ever. It takes a simple premise and gradually builds upon its established mechanicArguably one of the most creative concepts for a video game ever. It takes a simple premise and gradually builds upon its established mechanic of simply going left and right with more ludicrous scenarios and interesting challenges as you progress. Starting off by simply dodging to the side to avoid oncoming traffic, you later find yourself avoiding gunshots, dealing with an argumentative GPS and going underwater and avoiding torpedo dolphins. The story always revels in its madness. Heavily recommend to gamers who love unique experiences. Expand

    ❗ Самый уникальный и эмоциональный игровой опыт, который вы можете испытать ❗
    Лучше, конечно, с джойстиком, но игра есть даже на телефоны! И, конечно, НАУШНИКИ РЕКОМЕНДЕД!

    Вы заперты в машине с завязанными глазами и должны не врезаться, несясь по автомагистрали. Игр, где надо играть вслепую итак можно по пальцам пересчитать, так тут ещё и сюжет есть! И да, концептуально, вы могли такое встретить в каких-то фильмах, но всё гениальное просто, интерактивное произведение такого формата ещё никто раньше не делал.

    Тут прекрасно почти всё, придраться не к чему. Дизайн меню шикарный, музыка шикарная, все звуки шикарные, озвучка персонажей шикарная, геймплей очень простой, но достаточно разнообразный, разработчики выжали максимум из простейшей механики, в игре про слепого водителя даже 2 БОССА ЕСТЬ!

    Проходя эту игру я как-будто бы переиграл ВО ВСЕ ЖАНРЫ, вначале это ХОРРОР, тебе реально очень страшно врезаться и непонятно, что происходит, я реально сидел весь потный, проходя её) от каждого столкновения я вздрагивал, потом это ХАРДКОР похлеще дарк соулса, но при этом всё ещё страшно, игра держит в напряжении постоянно, потом, к середине игры, сложность становится немного попроще, по сюжету начинается какая-то КОМЕДИЯ, в конце это уже полноценная хардкорная аркада с чёрным юмором. В общем, игра за 2,5 часа меня полностью эмоционально истощила и, это охрененно! За 2 часа вы испытали эмоций на целый день❗

    - Да, конечно, сюжет скатывается в треш в конце, и хотелось бы чего-то более серьёзного, это единственный минус игры, но требовать большего от такого маленького инди-проекта сложно, надеюсь в будущем кто-то сделает более полноценную игру про "слепого водителя", может даже с решениями, влияющими на сюжет.. с несколькими концовками, было бы вообще 10/10. Ещё игра слишком сложная, я даже на лёгком её еле прошёл, и слабонервным людям может очень тяжело в неё играть из-за очень долгого чувства тревоги.

    Это незаслуженно никем незамеченная игра, в которую должен поиграть каждый (если жалко денег, хоть в пиратку поиграйте, она даже на телефоны есть), очень обидно за игру, даже я её заметил только через год после её выхода из-за упоминания её названия в одной из статей в инете. Теперь это мой ТОП-3 2021. 9/10.

    Этот ТОП: https://www.backloggd.com/u/grihajedy/list/2021/
    Из игр, в которые могут играть даже слепые люди, могу отметить ещё "Blind Legend", но там мне не понравилось техническое исполнение.

I've seen flash games with more depth. However funny you think the "story" is, the core game play is literally just either going left or right. That's it. It gets old after 5 minutes. Would have been fine as an intro to a game or something, once you realize that's all you'll be doing the whole game it loses any appeal it started with. Expand
