Paul Bennun from Somethin' Else sez, "We just released Papa Sangre, the video game with no video.

Amazing combo of tech and art. Yes, I am biased. But. We are incredibly proud.Response has been incredible, just amazing, especially from blind people (unsurprisingly)."
Entering the Palace of Bones from Papa Sangre on Vimeo.
You are lost, deep in the darkness of the land of the dead. Your eyes are useless to you here -- but your ears are filled with sound. And what is it you can hear ... ?
All you know is someone is in grave danger and desperately needs your help. Can you save them and make your escape or will you be trapped in the blackness forever?
You're in Papa Sangre's palace. His palace is in an afterlife that takes the form of a malevolent, unpredictable carnival: imagine a Mexican graveyard on the Day of the Dead -- with the lights off. You're the piñata for a host of partying monsters. They probably look a lot worse than they sound. You should count yourself lucky it's too dark to see them.
Get out. Save the one you love. Do the right thing.

More interesting to me though is that, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Ratner “also plans to […]
The Fire TV Stick is the only streaming media player we use. We should recycle our TiVo and Apple TV. The best thing about Fire TV Stick is the voice control. I press a button on the remote and tell it what I want to watch (lately it’s been HBO’s The Night Of) and I’m […]
Trains may not be the most popular means of conveyance nowadays, but chances are you grew up playing with toy trains or building a model set to wrap around the Christmas tree. In either case, it’s safe to say that locomotives have long carried a unique sense of awe and scale, especially when they’re hundreds […]

For many startups and fledgling businesses, web hosting — and the fees associated with it — can take a sizeable chunk out of the company budget and limit growth down the road. But, that’s not to say there aren’t hosts out there who can get your site online while staying within your budget. Arch Hosting is a […]
