Welcome at AudioGames.net!
AudioGames.net is a community portal for audio games: games based on sound. An audio game is a game that consists (only) of sound. Its gamemechanics are usually based on the possibilites of sound as well. Usually (but not always) audio games have only auditive (so no visual!) output. We think audio games have the potentional to be a genre on its own due to the immense undiscovered possibilities of sound. Audiogames.net aims to promote audio games and support and inform the audio game community. By providing a clear view on the audio game genre we also contribute to the evergrowing game industry that is only just now beginning to recognize some of the potentials of sound.
