Designing Accessible Games

This presentation provides game developers with the basic tools needed to make their games more accessible. Games accessibility has become a major topic in the past few years, looking at both new hardware like the Xbox Accessible Controller and design changes like colorblind modes and better subtitles. This presentation will discuss the foundations of accessibility for visual, auditory, motor and cognitive disabilities. Developers will learn how to broaden their audience to some of the most loyal customers in the industry, as well as create a more inclusive and usable game.

Places are limited, please you MUST RSVP in order to attend!
