Amanda Gardner of The Deep End Games joins to chat about the game Perception!ut the tense psychological first person narrative about a blind woman and an abandoned estate. We chat about the creation of the game, the use of echo location in the game, designing the visuals for echo location, and how Amanda likes to consider her game “spoopy” and not horror!
