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, even card games that are blind accessible.

Requirements

The only requirement for this jam is that the game is fully playable without vision. This doesn't mean you have to cover the screen, but it would be interesting to play if you included an option to do that.

So get going! You have the whole month of June 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. Until we get machines that generate a specific scent, taste, temperature, etc. the only other sense we have is sound.

Theme

The completely optional theme for this jam is "LOST". You don't have to incorporate it.
