Hello,

I love this list! :-)
It shows that there are already lots of Game Accessibility Features and that
we do not need research about basic one.

@Barrie: Maybe we can organize it a little bit?
* Sound alternatives, controller, ...



I updated this:

Sam & Max Season one (- PC 2007)
The Whispered World (Daedalic Entertainment - PC 2009)


Questions:

The first term after the ( is the developer?
How can we find out the developer.
In the rating system www.usk.de and at amazon we have only the publisher.

How do we note that it is an Add On or a patch?



Added:

The Whispered World (Daedalic Entertainment - PC 2009)) - Dialogue: focued
line is highlighted. (Would be great to have an option that it will be
spoken, too)

My Football Game (VTree LLC - PC 2009) - support of alternative controller,
customer configurable gamespeed, practice level?



Maybe should be added:
In Sam & Max there is a text that shows that the game is automatically
saved. This is not a special feature. But some do miss this.
So I think that it is worth to mention. (Some kind of a reminder)
