'Minecraft' (ALL) Playable On PC With Just Your Eyes

by Rainier on April 17, 2018 @ 2:50 p.m. PDT

Minecraft is a sandbox building game which allows players to build, construct and craft objects in a cubic world.

Minecraft is a game based on limitless creativity and building in a three dimensional sandbox world.

Explore randomly‐generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources or mine deep into the world in survival mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off the dangerous mobs.

UK-based gamers’ charity SpecialEffect have today released their unique open-source EyeMine software that will enable many people with severe physical disabilities to play Minecraft - using only their eyes.

Windows-based EyeMine is free to download for anyone with a Minecraft account and works with a number of suitable eye-trackers. It can be made compatible with any eye tracker that can control a mouse pointer. 

The software has a number of ability levels. If players can use eye gaze to select a square button about a quarter of the height of a monitor, they should be able to walk, fly and attack. More accurate eye control enables players to build, select items from the inventory and chat.

The help of a number of people with physical disabilities has been vital in the development and testing of the software. One of them, Becky Tyler, demonstrated the software to her gaming heroes (and long time SpecialEffect supporters) Lewis Brindley and Mark Turpin of the Yogscast recently.

SpecialEffect Founder and CEO Dr Mick Donegan said, “For us, EyeMine represents a watershed development. It’s a flagship example of taking the experience we’ve gained through our one-to-one work with gamers with the most severe physical disabilities and translating it into a means of helping a huge number of people on a global scale.”

Please note: EyeMine is not compatible with Minecraft on mobile or gaming consoles.

Key Features:

  • Create and explore your very own world where the only limit is what you can imagine.
  • Includes five skin packs and two texture packs to customize your gameplay!
  • Use the touch screen to check your map or manage your inventory!
