Sad news, folks.

With the next Update (2.7.0) VoiceOver support for Silversword will end. Over the past years I was urged by different people to add VoiceOver support to some of the game elements so that it became playable on a very individual basis. That lead to the situation that Silversword is now promoted as a game for visually impaired people. But that was never intended. Silversword is NOT a no-brainer for people who are looking for accessible games. Nothing was designed with accessibility in mind when I developed it. The bottom line is that the game now gets bad reviews from blind people because expectations aren’t met.

The User Interface as it is now can’t be made accessible in a way that pleases the majority of the visually impaired players. The whole concept of the map and other elements would need to be changed and the program code would need to be rewritten completely – this is something that I will not do.

I am sorry that this will impact players that already bought the game. To compensate for this, the functions that are already in the game won’t change. But I will add a clear notice to the game description that the game is not meant to be played by visually impaired people and I won’t support any request regarding the Voice Over functions in the future.

Kind regards
Mario

Could updating the game risk breaking the accessibility and is the any opoint buying the flooded isles expansion when released?
