Sucessfully Crowdfunded Blind Accessible Audio Game, Grail to the Thief, Now Available for Download

Slay a foul beast, save a child in danger, rescue a princess, and steal the Holy Grail!

(Worcester, MA) September 10, 2014 - For All To Play today announced the launch of Grail to the Thief, an interactive audio adventure for Windows, Mac, and Linux that can be played using only sound, without the need for visuals. The game has been designed with the needs of the blind and visually impaired in mind but can be enjoyed by everyone. The game delivers an exciting, immersive experience in which the player is always fully aware of what is happening through the use of voice-overs, sound effects, ambient sound and music.

Grail to the Thief was successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter on May 4, 2014. The campaign received $10,021 in pledges, surpassing the base funding goal of $8,000 and hitting the $10,000 stretch goal that will allow For All To Play to bring the game to mobile devices. Grail to the Thief can be purchased at www.foralltoplay.com as a DRM-free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux, with the mobile versions planned for release in late 2014.

About Grail to the Thief

Grail to the Thief stars Hank Krang, a thief from the future, and his self-aware time machine, TEDI, as they go throughout time stealing priceless artifacts. On their first adventure, Hank and TEDI travel to Arthurian times in search of the Holy Grail.

In Grail to the Thief, players make their choices through an RPG-style conversation tree, eliminating the confusion and frustration that comes with traditional text adventure games, which require players to type in commands to progress. The game is a nostalgic throwback to childhood favorites such as Zork, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Day of the Tentacle, and Grim Fandango, and draws inspiration from old BBC radio dramas and the movie Time Bandits.
