This game was developed during Hacking Health Vancouver 2013 hackathon. The player navigates through a playground as an autistic child with auditory hypersensitivity. Proximity to loud children causes sensory overload for the player, impacting cognitive functions. This impact is represented as visual noise and blur, as well as audio distortion. Participants described the experience as visceral, insightful and compelling.

The autism has many face. A friend, who is autist, told me, he is an awesome person, in my opinion.

I don't have autism and even I know that this game comes nowhere close to depicting what it's actually like to be autistic. Rediculous.

considering I have autism this pisses me off a great deal, it's autism not a freaking physical handicap we're still human and we can still adapt I don't understand why everyone thinks we can't survive in noise and only in quiet places we may be hypertensive but we can also single out almost everything around us in favor of one thing. this is a poor representation of people with autism and only enforces untrue stereotypes of us

I got my autistic brother to play this game to see how accurate it was.
Here's the results

It is horrifying to think that something similar to this happens in the real world but the experience of this makes me more aware of such things.

It was probably a bad idea to play this game considering that I'm an Aspie. I had a sensory overload. But I needed to see if this was a good simulation.
