https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_echolocation

I don't mean stuff like areas lighting up when you throw an object against a wall, but somehow managing to replicate the feeling that humans with echolocation actually experience, is it feasible or is it impossible for non blind people?

Also some interesting blog on how echolocation works, it's a fiction blog mostly http://planetfuraha.blogspot.com/2012/07/echolocation-sound-choice.html?m=1

Not an actual dev by the way, thought this board might be a nice place for discussion.

Unsure if this is what you'd have in mind, but I remember ages ago I tried to keep up with independent game development and heard of something called Devil's Tuning Fork. Everything's completely invisible until you hit it with a sound wave.

I think they actually did an experiment with uni students which forced them to develop rudimentary echolocation.

But considering the amount of effort it takes to develop as an actual skill the best you could do is some kind of 'trainer' that's only playable with headphones.

Short answer: yes it can.

I think it's pretty interesting idea - to make a game smh like daredevil. That a guy would lose its eyesight and have to learn to see with echolocation and tactile senses. And to the end of the have he become superhuman. It would be interesting for dude to be able to see through car and identify engine, but unable to see through glass because the room is soundproof.

But to actually implement it you need advanced 3d knowledge. And I barely can make some point and clicks with Godot.

P.S.: O.P. is ideaguy.

Also check out Scanner Sombre by Introversion. Apparently a good game that didn't sell too well.

Have the character send out regular clicks to see where they're going, with the option of the player hold a button to make the clicks faster if they need more accuracy or a more solid image of a passageway

also during combat/risky places it speeds up but during attacks/dodges the clicks are paused for that brief moment due to the body focusing on other actions so you have to carefully time that tradeoff of attack but loss of sight briefly

Diluvion had a system that visually could be copied for that echolocation effect

>is it impossible for non blind people?

Yes.

The reason is that non-blind people literally have not formed the neural connections necessary for echolocation to be used. And the only way to form those connections is to force yourself to navigate by sound alone, which forces your brain to make those connections to better enhance your auditory senses to compensate for lack of sight.

The only way I can think of is to actually find someone who used to be blind, who has also developed a usable form of echolocation and interview them directly and ask of their ability to echolocate has diminished after being able to see.

What nigger, there are clickers designed for blind people to use to navigate.
