Harry Cooper talks about the process and experience behind developing an audio game being designed with the Blind in mind. Harry, Jacob and Conner make up Purple Jam Limited which is creating a game called Pitch Black. And here is a segment taken from their Kick Starter page, about Purple Jam and their Pitch Black project.
Purple Jam consists of three audio specialists turned game developers, upon reassessing our omnidirectional lives, we decided to gather our intellectual resources and create the game of all games; Pitch Black: A Dusklight Story. We first graced each other in September of last year, powering through Master’s degrees at The University of Derby. Harry Cooper, commonly known as ‘The Mastermind’ in a flash of inspiration, had the idea of creating a binaural based audio game. Naturally, Connor and Jordan were instantly on board. Using our past experience in sound design, composition, game development and narrative construction, we combined forces to create the company that we are today. With an unprecedented desire to excel in creative industries, we set upon our journey to create a diverse, deep and exciting journey through our dark and eccentric world.
