Great news. One of the Retro Remakes one switch competition entries has been
nominated for "Innovation In Game Design", and will be up to play on the
Independent Games Festival Pavilion at GDC 2006 (www.igf.com).
This game is "Strange Attractors" by Ominous Development
(www.igf.com/php-bin/entries2006.php?entry_id=142). It's a unique and fun
game with some excellent accessiblility features, including single button
play, a scan and select menu and good variable difficulty levels.
Eric Walker of Ominous Development has asked me:
"....since we're going to have a little spot to show off our game, is there
anything we can do for you or the Game Accessibility talks? In all honesty
we wouldn't have had this opportunity if we hadn't been inspired by the one
switch competition back in May, so if there's anything we can do to return
the favor, let me know."
Any thoughts any one? We're fine to put the game on any accessible games CD
we might produce. Might be nice if Ominous Developments could contribute
something to the accessibility day, perhaps in person or writing.
