They say friendship comes about when two people complement each other. In Weakless, this is not just a mere observation about interactions, it’s a very palpable thing. Lead two characters – one without the sense of hearing, the other with no sense of vision – through a beautiful, organic, fantasy world filled with challenging puzzles. Use the extraordinary set of skills they’ve developed because of their disabilities, and witness the growing bond between these two very remarkable companions.
In Weakless you can control only one character at a time, which means you can’t use the senses of both of them simultaneously. Because of this, you get a unique perspective on how differently they perceive the world around them and at the same time how the two support and complement each other. Deaf being his usual “whizz in a pinny” brings joy to the slightly defensive and introverted Blind. While Blind on the other hand, with the power of his calmness, takes care of the ubiquitous Deaf.
In our world, people with no vision or hearing often have other, sharper, senses. The same is true for Weavelings. Discover the extraordinary set of skills your heroes have, and prove to the world that what’s always been considered a weakness can, in fact, be a mighty advantage.
The game takes place in a world full of wonderful, distinctive landscapes. Your path will lead through caves full of glowing fungi, natural basins, forgotten ruins and more. Traveling through this extraordinary world will lead the Weavelings to experience the adventure of their lifetime and discover the mysterious past that led to their home teetering on the edge of destruction.
Protect the village and the Weavelings' civilization by restoring the steady flow of Resin, the life energy for every living creature in this world. Save the land from the advancing Rot.
Blind is this character who can't see but is more advanced in sense of hearing. He is mostly focused on sounds. Even if he was born in the village he decided to live in hermitage where he can peacefully listen to sounds of environment and play music. Blind is stoic and calm. He has a band around his head and wooden stuff in his hand which helps him to recognize the surroundings.
Vision of Blind
The vision of the Blind is limited to what he can hear or touch. His vision is mostly focused on hearing sensations. It's an empty dark space in which appears light areas of recognizing the environment. One of the areas shows Blind and his surroundings. Every distinctive sound he hears show the space around. It's radius depends on sounds amplitude. Also, Deaf as a sound source is making a recognizing area around. His perspective is wider than Deaf's. Every sound of environment is heard by him.
It's the special ability of Blind. He can expand the radius of his area of recognizing environment when arousing the sound wave by hitting his stuff on the ground. Area of echolocation stays in exact place even if Blind starts to move. It allows recognizing objects which are far away, under the ground or behind the obstacle. After some time area of echolocation starts to shrink until it disappear.
Blind can use action on musical instruments and play them. He is always compatible with beats and bars of diegetic and non diegetic music. Playing musical instruments is kind of collectible. All played instruments are shown in menu so the player can see and hear them once again.
Only the Blind is strong enough to push things. When Blind is near the object he can use action to grab one of its sides and then move with it. Some objects can be grabbed from every side, some have limited sides, some can be pushed to every direction, for some also the directions are limited -it depends on type of object.
