In this paper we propose a cochlear implant simulator which works in real-time. The simulator allows listeners with av- erage hearing abilities to hear as if they had a cochlear im- plant. It is focused to be an audio plugin for Unity in or- der to save time as it facilitates getting real time outcomes for a developer team when designing serious games for CI users, without the necessity having an impaired person to test. Additionally, it bypasses part of the unpleasantness caused on CI users testing being it even larger when ad- dressing children and their families.
