Play OverviewPlay Overview

Rescue: Mayday (2021) is a helicopter adventure where you are putting out fires and rescuing civilians. You play the game in a team of two, each on your own device. The Pilot player flies the helicopter but has no visibility and must use information from the other player. The Engineer is in the control tower who can see the storms and other plans to guide the Pilot to the destination safely.

This is the prototype of a game designed to be an inclusive gaming experience for players with different levels of vision. Gameplay is based on the collaboration between two players who play asymmetric roles. One role (the Pilot) implies an entirely auditory challenge (blind accessible) and the other (the Engineer) implies a visual challenge. The game was designed as an inclusive game experience for players with mixed visual abilities.
