My name is Travis Smith. I am a blind game developer, who has a passion for creating games for the blind. In 2004, at the age of twenty, I unexpectedly lost my eyesight, due to a condition I was born with. There was never any indication that this condition would ever cause me to go blind, that is until 2004. Both of my optic nerves were totally damaged by intercrainial pressure. As a result, I was left totally blind. While in college, I became greatly interested in creating games for the blind. I really missed all the computer games I used to play, as a sighted person. I set out on a mission to bring the joy of those games to the blind and visually impaired, and so Blind Gameware was born.
