"Nychta: A game with no graphics" is the first videogame with no graphics at all. It was designed as a challenge to make a videogame without one of its basic components and also as a way to raise awareness about videogame accessibility by putting players in the shoes of blind gamers.

 

The game is about escaping from a labyrinth by mentally mapping your surroundings using the sounds of your steps or bumping into walls. Each level features a procedurally generated labyrinth and the labyrinths increase in size the further you progress.

 

Controls:

Arrow keys, w/a/s/d or swipe to move

R to reload level

M to turn music on or off


1.1 Update: Added swiping functionality for smartphone support, changed the sound of finding the exit to something a little more rewarding and added the option to use w/a/s/d to move

Cool idea and exploration, but I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news and tell you that Soundvoyager, Blindscape and Real Sound: Kaze no Regret all did this first...

Thank you ^^ Yes, of course there are other games that mainly use sound but by "no graphics at all" I mean no text, UI or anything on screen that can be considered graphics, just darkness.
