|A Fan-Based Proposal to make MYST Accessible to Deaf Players|
Last Updated: 7/8/07
An investigation is underway, that hopes to determine if the original MYST can be adapted for use by deaf players. If it can, the next step will be to make the necessary modifications available on the web. Preliminary thought and experimentation makes the prospect of success look promising. What is still needed is input from game designers and programmers who can address the difficulties of what has been proposed.
Interested parties are invited to participate in the discussion in the MYSTcommunity forum for this topic.
The project manager is Serrinatta
The Discussion Thus Far:
Major audio that needs to be converted in some way:Mazerunner
