    Hey guys!

    As my header suggests! I found your forum popped up first when I googled FPS forums, so here I am! I'm gonna go explore once I'm done with this post, but since you're already here I've got 2 questions!
    1. Would you play a MP Shooter where everyone is blind and you only see using sound, i.e. footsteps, gunshots, dripping water, etc?
    2. Where's the most appropriate place to post the above question?
    Also, as a gamer, I'm huge on FPS and was into COD MW1 and 2! But kinda fell off after getting into game development full time, now I mostly play Overwatch on and off with my buddies!

    Welcome Sir,
    Your game idea concept sounds very intriguing. I’m sure a HQ headset would be required.

    But without visuals all I would do is end up spraying & praying. What type of audio queues would you use to help aim? Or even if you hit your target?

    No.

    I could see it being a sort of cool feature in a campaign, for a short period but not in a MP game.

    I would need way more info on how this would work to have a solid opinion. Sounds like it could be interesting but apart from that...

    Essentially, you'll be able to see anything that's covered in sound. Think Daredevil.

    Visuals can come in a few forms.
    • Sounds that are generated naturally in the level. Running water, some kind of alarm? A Clock? These will expose certain parts of the level allowing you to "see"
    • A "scanner" type weapon that shoots moving sound pulses out so players can kinda scan their weapon
    • Projectile weapons hit walls and generate sounds and sight.
    • Moving around the level will create sounds via footsteps and that will attract enemies.
