Distorted vision

Other (objects, etc.) concept

Something can cause the protagonist's vision to get distorted or otherwise impaired. Especially cases where the vision is always distorted


Alternate name: Impaired vision

The first video game about Distorted vision was released on March 26, 1994.

Square Enix, 2K Games and Bethesda Softworks has published most of these games

Simplest distortion is blur, after that comes changes in color vision, or variances in vision as if looking through a glass with bumpy surface, afterimages, and so forth. Technically simplest method is adding a transparent colored overlay or rendering only one color channel.

Note that this is NOT for swaying, shaking, or such.
