Michelle I hope this e-mail gets to you I'm not sure how to enter into the
accessibility access digest now.  I just propose to my friends from GDC's
colors to work on a game for this upcoming September deadline it would be
great if we want put us on the right step for us or me starting a company
toward game accessibility.  I just want to get started making games more
steps of success I think a better chance for support and the contest site
says they help promote toward funding toward your project in the future.  Is
there another competition and if so or regardless is our accessibility group
going to work on a game if so let me know I want to join whenever I can.  .

hi all,


not to steal retroremake's thunder but a company i've been working with
wants to sponsor a game accessibility contest. my friend didn't know about
the retroremakes competition going on at the same time but i think that
there's enough differences that it will be ok and donationcoder will allow
entries into both contests as long as the one for donationcoder is a
slightly different version or even more into accessibility than retro. BUT i
think it's VERY exciting to see not one but TWO competitions for game


anyway, the working page is at http://www.donationcoder.com/Contests/agame/
and i'd love some feedback. barrie has already provided some and the changes
are being worked on now (more web links, more clear explanations about
switch games, etc).


there will be a lot of prizes that are being finalized next week -- $5k is
up there as the amount of money the prizes are currently at but the last
donationcoder competition (not a gaming comp) had $15k in prizes. also i
plan on inviting winners from retroremakes and donationcoder to submit a
case study on the creation of their game to the SIG book as well as the
possibility of talking about the creation of the game at next year's GDC
(provided we get accepted!).


so fire away with suggestions -- and if you are at a company that would like
to donate copies of games, tshirts, swag, game consoles, etc let me know at
hinn at uiuc.edu


thanks all!
