DDD (Disability Driven Design) Project (JP)
Audio games are created from sound and played with sound, unlike video games where visual information is essential. The project explores the possibilities of experiences created by sound using various media and venues, such as holding game centers in real places, hosting “Prototyping Party”, a hackathon to develop new games with various creators, carrying out online distribution and podcasts.
