Hi Claudio, Hi all,
Richard of Audiogames has often spoke about how well audiogames would translate to the likes of iPods and other portable devices. I agree too, and would love to have some interactive fiction to play for long journeys on trains and planes. Especially so for me as using handheld video game devices makes me feel ill whilst travelling.
Re. one-switch audio games, Sandra. Probably not the most subtle example but there are one or two in existence such as Scarface that came from an Experimental Audiogames competition, Links below:
Would love to see more.
By the way Richard, will there be an Audio Games 2009 Experimental Games this year? Have always enjoyed the imaginative games that have come out of this.

Subject: experimental games - working on mobile devices!
I made a very interesting discovery today.
As some of you know, most of the experimental games from audiogames.net are whritten in flash.
I found a "flash player" on my fone, so I thought "why not try it?"
I installed one game on my fone and I could hear the introduction-voice!!!
The problem was that the game said "press the space bar to start the game", and on mobile devices, you don't have a space bar.
Another game didn't work correctly.
I could hear a short part of the intro, but then the game crashed.
Guys, I think I have discovered a new platform for little handy-games!!
If the game is little and compact, it should work on newer mobile fones!
What do you say about it?
