Blind Gamer Earns 'Horizon Zero Dawn' Platinum After 73 Hours


Blind Gamer Earns 'Horizon Zero Dawn' Platinum After 73 Hours

For those of us that are lucky enough to be able-bodied, gaming is an easy task. We can see, hear, and even feel whatever the game needs us to so we can complete some of the best fictional stories ever created.


I feel fortunate that I can explore the worlds of The Witcher 3 or God of War whenever I like. But one blind gamer has shared the tech he relies on, as well as the help of a good friend who guides him through those virtual worlds. Their teamwork is, in a word, incredible.


SightlessKombat works alongside his friend MRDemonbane to conquer games he might not have otherwise been able to conquer. The two gamers use the application Parsec and the controller device Titan 2 to run inputs into the same console. MRDemonbane essentially helps guide SightlessKombat's gameplay while Kombat handles most of the important stuff. This is how the gamer finally earned the Horizon Zero Dawn Platinum trophy - what a champ.

Recently, SightlessKombat took to Reddit to tell people about his impressive achievement, and how he spent 73 hours 22 minutes, and 48 seconds with MRDemonbane beating every challenge Horizon Zero Dawn has to offer.

"We've had a great time going through getting all the collectables, completing the main story and generally defeating pretty much most things that tried to take us on, machine or otherwise and even if it took a few attempts," he said of the experience. "I can definitely see why people love this game and every session reinforced that."


SightlessKombat also hopes that sequel Horizon Forbidden West will improve on the accessibility features of the first game. But he added that even if Guerilla doesn't change anything, he'll still try giving it a playthrough with his trusty partner in crime.
