I would be very much interested in an audio Civilization like game. I have 
longed for something like that. Years ago I used to play Utopia. It was a turn 
based, online, text only game.

Subject: Re: [blind-gamers] Coming up with ideas for a new game project.

There was a computerized version of Axis and Allies and it was to that version 
that I was referring. Still, I agree, Civilization is a better fit for what I 
am talking about.

Other ideas:

1. A Dwarf Fortress-esque game
2. A good 2D action-platformer (that supports game controllers), The Gate was a 
step in the right direction, but there were way too many flaws to make it 
playable 3. Something similar to the above, only with an emphasis on 
exploration, e.g. something like Metroid
