Abstract

We designed, developed and tested Unseeable, a Web-based game with the goal of reproducing the subjective experience of a colorblind person for non-colorblind players to increase their understanding of the daily challenges caused by this form of visual impairment. The game was developed using HTML5, JavaScript, CSS3 and Three.js to build the front end, node.js and express.js for the server, and MongoDB for the database used to store test data. A majority of players reported increased empathy for people dealing with colorblindness.
