The very first Nintendo Wii-game which can be played by blind or visually impaired children!

In this game you will be playing Ben the archeologist, who searches for the Temple of the Diamond Scarab and runs into the enchanted Egyptian princess Tiri. Together they try to escape from the temple and it's dangers...



This game is the first game for blind, visually impaired and sighted children, because both visuals and sounds are used in an optimal way. This way the game can be played together by blind and visually impaired with their sighted siblings and friends! The game is intended for children between 6 and 12 years of age. It also encourages the development of the locomotion of blind children using the Wii Balance Board. The game has the aim of promoting motor skills, a trait which is underdeveloped in blind children.

The game has been developed together with experts in the fields of physiotherapy, game design and most important of all the true experts in gameplay; the blind, visually impaired and sighted children themselves. This to ensure an experience that is completely fits to the needs and demands of the end users!

There is limited number of copies available for consumers in the PAL region. Please order here.

We would like to come into contact with possible publishers and ditributors for publishing this game. We are also interested in (international) institutions that want to use 'The Explorer' and it’s beneficial effects within their organizations by purchasing multiple copies. If you are interested, please contact us!
