“The holy grail of gaming accessibility is to allow a blind or V.I. gamer to operate in a 3D open world. Purple Jam’s ‘A Dusklight Story’ has realized this goal through dynamic binaural sound. A Dusklight Story: Episode 1 lays the groundwork for an epic 3D open world dystopian plot. Purple Jam’s advancement in audio technology is unlocking the ability for blind gamers to fully access 3D open world gaming experiences.”

About This Game

This is the first instalment of a six episode saga, featuring around one hour of gameplay with features for replay-ability.


The world of Dusklight is bleak yet filled with character. The last remaining capital city of a post-apocalyptic wasteland remains in the grips of a deceitful church and tyrannical corporations. With the aid of a unique Auditory Zoom mechanic you will uncover the mysteries of Dusklight.

Choices matter, choose to listen and explore, choose to charge and fight, choose the dark or the light. Pitch Black subtly adapts to how you want to play it, and you'll experience different aspects of the narrative depending on how you play.

Fight your past, fight for your future, with the choices you make and if you choose to, with your bare hands. Using a unique audio combat mechanic unlike anything you've played before.
