A University of Nottingham group is calling for children and families to test games designed to help hearing aid users.

The Human Factors Research Group at the University of Nottingham is part of 3D Tune-In, an international project developing 3D-games for learning about and tuning hearing aids (

It will soon be testing the first game prototype designed for child hearing aid users (aged 6-12 years) to play with their friends and family and needs your help to provide feedback and improve the game.

Dartanan, developed by XTeam, is a classic platform game, following the style of Nintendo’s Super Mario. The player is the modern cartoon version of Musketeer D’Artagnan who needs to jump over platforms, kill enemies, avoid traps, and collect coins to free his penguin friend who was captured by a villain.

Testing of the game will take place in January/February and May/June 2017
