Regarding the "Guidelines for developing accessible games" web-site
http://gameaccess.medialt.no/guide.php and http://gameaccess.medialt.no/ do
you think MediaLT would consider working together with us?
Their guidelines are very dry, but there is a lot of very solid advice in
It would be improved by:
*Not being so dry.
*Using more acceptable language
*More real-world examples that more people can relate to.
*Pictures, videos, audio clips, colour.
*Consideration that disabled gamers can include novice gamers and young
*Examples of game genres and how to add accessibility features - from the
simplest to the most involved.
*Links to recommended games with specific accessibility features.
*Perhaps design flow-charts to help with designing specific features
In the meanwhile, RetroRemakes have said that they plan to keep the
"Accessibility Assistance" forum up on-line indefinitely:
http://www.retroremakes.com/forum2/forumdisplay.php?f=84 - which could prove
a useful resource to pick from in future.
