We published the first “decent” release of Blindfold Racer a few days ago, and I asked a friend to help get the word out about it.
Kate contacted several organizations that provide services or products visually impaired people, and one of the first – Stephen Guerra of the National Beep Baseball Association – really liked the game. He is active on AppleVis (website devoted to Apple products for blind and low-vision users), and he posted Blindfold Racer on AppleVis.
Within a few days, we had hundreds of downloads of the Blindfold Racer, with lots of great suggestions and advice from blind people who tried out the game. We replied to each suggestion, and we’ll be releasing an update within a few days.
One of the gamers did a podcast review of Blindfold Racer, and for a few days it was the most downloaded app on AppleVis.
