Eat your carrots to survive

You're lost, deep in the darkness of the land of the dead. It's pitch black. Only the use of your hearing can help you escape. You know you and a loved one are in grave danger...
You’re in Papa Sangre’s palace; an afterlife that takes the form of a malevolent, unpredictable carnival. Imagine a Mexican graveyard on the Day of the Dead. You’re the piƱata for a host of partying monsters. Fortunately, you cannot see them.

Papa Sangre is a video game with no video. It’s a first-person thriller, done entirely in audio by an award-winning team of game designers, musicians, sound designers and developers at Somethin’ Else. They've created an entire world using the first ever real-time 3D audio engine implemented on a handheld device. The project is supported by 4iP (the paramilitary wing of the UK’s Channel 4).
