Hi nicol.

Just as in English, it's very symple. if you experience thei game from your character's perspective directly, ---- Ie, seeing the sites, and hearing the sounds that he/she would around you, then it's first person.


If the character themselves is there for you to move around, and you experience the environment around the character from a different point of view than that of the character, ---- it's a third person game.

Most audio games are first person, ---- sinse for obvious reasons it's easier to experience the sounds from your characters perspective.

The only ones I can think of which aren't, are Side scrollers like Q9 and mota, where you here what is in front of and behind your character, and know where your character is by the sound of his/her footsteps, --- independently of the environment, it's possible Night of parasite, treasure hunt, and maybe entombed might also count as third person, ---- though this is argueable.

Actually, in audio, sinse it's more difficult to represent a large amount of environmental information at a glance, ---- the distinction is a litle more blurry.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
