Blindfold Survey Results

We had hundreds of responses to the recent survey: most people have downloaded 26 or more games, and have purchased around 5 games.  More than one third of the survey takers purchased at least 10 games.

For the question “What type of game would you like to have more of?”, the most popular categories were board games, sports games, and TV game shows.

For the question “Pick 5 games that you would like to see next”, the leaders were Game of Life Board Game,  Restaurant Game, Mario Brothers, Puppy Care, Name That Song, Golf, Football, 100,000 dollar pyramid and piloting an airplane.  The least requested games were snooker, mastermind peg game, dabble word game and risk board game.

I did get some requests for games I’ve already built: Snakes and Ladders (called Blindfold Snakes and Puzzles), baseball (called Blindfold Home Run Derby), Family Feud (called Blindfold Feud), Trivia games (Blindfold Jeopardy Match), Blackjack (called Blindfold Blackjack), Candy Crush (called Blindfold Color Crush), Concentration (called Blindfold Sound Search), Basketball (called Blindfold Basketball).

To answer other questions:

  • Most of the games do not require earphones.  Only those that use spatial location, like Blindfold Racer or Blindfold Hopper need earphones.
  • Many people asked for multiplayer games.  I launched several a while ago, and they were not popular at all.  That’s why we teamed up with RS Games – they make great multiplayer games.
  • I can build more braille and learning games, but I need a distribution partner to sell those games to schools and T.V.I.s (teachers of visually impaired people).  I haven’t found a distribution partner yet.

Thanks to everyone for your ideas.

  1. Marty, have you considered APH?

    Although I am not the right person to talk to, if you fill out our New Product form, someone can get back to you about this. Please be specific.
    No idea if it would work or not, but you never know; it’s worth exploring.

    Thank you.
