New Release: Grail to The Thief

Posted by | News | No Comments

Grail to the Thief, a choose-your-own adventure game suitable for visually impaired players, is now officially available for download! It was created by game company For All To Play and successfully funded via Kickstarter back in May.

Grail to the Thief stars Hank Krang, an adventurous criminal who has won a talking time machine named TEDI in a game of poker. Naturally, Hank decides to use TEDI to plunder the fabled riches of the past, starting with the Holy Grail.

The game takes inspiration from classics like “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” and “Time Bandits.” It uses text trees to create an interactive audio adventure that is designed to be highly accessible for all kinds of players. Accessible gaming is an issue that affects millions of people. One in five gamers has a disability, and yet many game studios don’t address the simple problems that prevent people from accessing their content.

The game makers at For All To Play were inspired to make Grail to the Thief when they realized how scant the options are for blind gamers. Audio adventure games are relatively easy to produce and are a ton of fun for everyone, so it just makes sense to create more of them.

If you’re curious about the game or just want to support a good cause, you can check it out right now for $5.00 on their official website, or play the prototype for free.

When Hank Krang wins a talking time machine in a game of poker, he knows exactly what he’s going to do with it. Study long-lost cultures and societies? Of course not! He’s going to steal the Holy Grail.

Grail to the Thief, a new game by For All To Play, is an interactive audio adventure starring Hank and TEDI (Time Excursion Digital Interface) as they solve puzzles and wander through medieval England. It takes inspiration from BBC radio dramas and the 1981 movie “Time Bandits,” and it has the potential to be something very cool. Especially because it’s designed for players who are visually impaired.

One problem: Grail to the Thief is currently still in the Kickstarter phase. They’ve got one week left to raise the remaining 35% of their goal. Read More
