Make a blind-friendly game!

I was very intrigued when I heard about blind people winning fighting game tournaments. Games that use diverse soundscapes so well are rarely seen, and are mostly stuck to visual novels and fighting games. Let's change that! Let's make puzzle platformers, first person shooters, heck, even card games that are blind accessible.

The only requirement is that the game is fully playable without seeing it. This doesn't mean you have to cover the screen, but it would be interesting if you included a debug option to do it.

So get going! You have the whole month of January to create a blind-accessible game. It doesn't need to be finished, it doesn't need to be pretty, all it needs to be is blind accessible. That means that no crucial information can be conveyed through graphics alone, it needs to be through sound (and if you want, it can also be through graphics).

The completely optional theme for this jam is NIGHT. You don't need to incorporate it.
