In this thesis, I present a game intended for people who are blind and partially sighted, a video game prototype created in a 3D virtual world in the Unreal Engine. In connection with the Estonian Association of the Blind and the Northern Estonian Association of the Blind, I studied blind computer usage habits to understand what computer gaming opportunities and skills blind people have and how they navigate computer-like devices.

While prototyping a game for blind people, I aimed to create an enjoyable and engaging gaming experience fully accessible to visually impaired players, considering the unique needs and abilities of blind players and designing my game prototype regarding different accessibility processes.
