Barrie Ellis - the man behind OneSwitch.org.uk who recently wrote Ouch's guide to accessible switch gaming - dropped us a line to let us know that there's a demo of a new game called Space Invaders for Blind available to try on the web. Now there is one slight problem - er, it's all in Japanese. But Barrie assures us that it's "quality", and that all you need to know to give the game a go are the following simple controls:

LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move your laser base;
SPACE to fire;
ESCAPE to quit.

You can find out more details about Space Invaders for Blind on their homepage - provided your Japanese is up to scratch - or use this link to download a demo of the game directly to your PC (it's 8.37MB, so you might want to go and make a cup of tea if you're on dial-up). Happy blasting!
