A Blind Gamer’s Battle with the Mighty Sephiroth from Kingdom Hearts 1

Featured here is my first ever gameplay video. I made this in an effort to show the world the lengths the blind will go to to play what we can of the video games we love. I’ve been a fan of the Kingdom Hearts series since its beginning, and though I can’t play the full game, it turns out I can take part in battles. This particular battle is one of the toughest, if not the toughest in the game, and I face him on Proud mode, the game’s hardest difficulty. Take a look, or a listen, to what I can do!

I urge you all to check this out. For your reference, my speech is just around the 48 minute mark, give or take. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment if you have anything to say.

I’m not talking just the slide show, no no, this is the full video of the entire panel. Watch me bring the message of blind gaming to the masses. Listen to the interesting questions we received once the talking was done. Listen as one of my co-panelists murders a small creature! It all happens in this panel, and now you can check it out.
