In "Half-Life", if you are attacked, there are red warning blocks that
show up in the direction that the damage is coming from (top, bottom,
left, right).  Also, litle icons are displayed on the screen indicating
what type of damage it is if its unconventional (fire, radioactive, etc.)

I think a good way to approach games for the blind, are possibly the
old-school games like "HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy", where you say "go
north" or "pick up brick".  The text could be spoken, or something.  I
don't really see much else, unless you have a lot of physical feedback
