Created in 48 hours at Global Game Jam 2014, Sanbiki No Saru (3 Wise Monkeys) is an accessible three player game, based loosely around the Three Wise Monkeys of Japanese myth, using connected devices. The theme of “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are” inspired the Opposable Games team to create a game for those with various impairments.
One player as See No Evil must identify the location of the approaching monkey souls using 3D spatial audio. The second, as Hear No Evil, must correctly differentiate between the good and the evil souls. The third player, as Speak No Evil, in in control of the gates of Monkey Heaven and the limitless bananas beyond.
The aim is to communicate their information with each other and work together stop the evil monkeys getting in to Monkey Heaven and let the good monkeys through.
