10 Dead Doves is a narrative puzzle game about a hike that turns into an unnerving horror story. You move through the world, investigating items to find subtle clues and solve puzzles, all the while experiencing surreal dreamlike sequences and meeting disturbing characters. It's a strange combination of comedic horror and road trip camaraderie

NotesAccessibility Notes

As the game is not released, the developer is still working on accessibility features. The report represents those features that they have a plan to implement and are confident of including but is subject to change.

You need to hold down the arrow keys to move, and must sometimes press multiple at a time. Rapid pressing is not needed. There are occasionally jump-scares and flashing light effects.

Text is high on contrast but often quite small.

Because the game is often puzzle-based, knowing what to do next can occasionally be unclear. The game sometimes uses colour to distinguish important items, such as red and green squares on a grid on which you input a code, which is of special note to red-green colourblind players. Additionally, the game often adjusts contrast greatly for dramatic effect, which can make distinguishing important interactive items very difficult.
