Stem Stumper, the innovative puzzle game you can play with your eyes close, now has a lite version available. You can now try 20 of our brain teasing levels for free before buying the full game. Stem Stumper has been hailed by several sources with Kotaku calling it "... a marvelously novel experience" and No Eyes Needed saying, "... the soundscape of Stem Stumper [is] captivating".
The inaugural game of Ananse Productions, Stem Stumper is built from the ground up to be enjoyed by both the iPhone's burgeoning blind community and fully sighted players around the world. Stem Stumper is fully integrated with VoiceOver, Apple's builtin screen reader for iOS devices. And if you think you can solve our puzzles with a blindfold on, we've included a sound only "sonar" mode.
While this is Ananse Productions first project, members of Ananse's team have already worked on several successful projects. Kwasi Mensah, lead developer and programmer has worked on games as varied as Green Day: Rock Band, Borderlands and Mass Effect: Pinnacle Station. Jennifer Kanis, our lead artist, has worked on the iPhone games in the Curious George franchise for FableVision.
