Blind Octopus Studios

We are the pioneers of narrative audio games for smartphones in Slovakia. Blind Octopus Studios bridges the gap between sighted and visually impaired players. By stimulating imagination, our games erase the boundaries between controlled dreaming and augmented reality. 

Scientific studies, artistic values and innovative game mechanics are the core pillars of our studio. By combining them with high quality sound design, we’re aiming to redefine mobile gaming with new perspectives. Don’t miss our game debut, Via Echo, heading to your smartphones in Jun 2024.

Via Memories - adventure story audio game

Nowadays, everyone carries a smartphone and knows how to use it pretty well. That is why we at Blind Octopus decided to put this remarkable device to the test by creating a unique action-adventure audio-based game for people’s pocket devices that uses all of its quirky gestures and integrated sensors. However, as our title aims to be a true mediator between the worlds of sighted and visually impaired players, sound and music design take center stage. With its innovative game mechanics, intuitive controls, and precise audio, we embark on the epic journey based on the true story of a Slovak national hero – Count Móric Beňovský, who sailed across the whole world, fought in many wars, became a rebel, fugitive, and even the king of Madagascar! Now comes the time to turn your mundane smartphone into a 1700s multitool that gives you the power to be a true adventurer! 

VIa Echo - hiden object audio game

Would you be able to identify your surroundings only by sound? If you are unsure, we recommend giving a listen to our EGGciting hidden object game packed with inventive mechanics, creative controls, and a cryptic narrative that rewards observant players. In Via Echo, you take upon the role of a brave and imPECKable ornithologist, who has made it her life’s work to save any birds before the inevitable end of the world comes. But there is no chickening out of the apocalypse, so get your mobile phone and fly BEAKfirst into the world of circular echo-locating and unconventional “birdwatching”!
