Pulse was funded on Kickstarter in April 2013, where it raised an impressive $80k. In this game you explore your surroundings using a process similar to echolocation, and you're aided by the adorable Mokos, which you can see in the trailer above.

The concept seems similar to Beyond Eyes, which I reviewed in August, but since I haven't played Pulse yet, I cannot say for sure how the games compare. I'm very intrigued by the look of Pulse though, and it's one I'll make sure to check out in the near future. In the meantime, I'd love to hear from readers who have played Pulse.

The game can be bought through a Humble Widget on the official website (comes with a Steam key) or from Steam.

Was that "jump platforming for the blind" I just saw? ...I'm going to need a positive review before getting this one :/

From what I can gather from the few Steam reviews the game is not very long, between half and hour and two hours, and it's more of an unique experience that a challenging game, but nonetheless they do recommend it so it must have something.

The fact that they added a throwable noise source made this game way more interesting to me.

It looks fantastic, but sadly the length of the game has put me off picking it up myself.
