Since I'm part of the group setting it up at RIT, I should be able to twist some arms about getting accessibility added in. As Michelle said, any info would help.

Hello!

So, Global Game Jam is right around the corner, and this is the time for us
to get involved.

Some of you may remember, last year we tried to put together a game
accessiblity challenge for some GGJ sites. Most of the feel through, but
the central Florida chapter went a head with it. The result was
this.<http://igda-gasig.org/success-cases-and-examples/global-game-jam/central-orlando-chapter-2011/>

This year, I'd like to get something similar going at other sites. I've
already got the New England Tech Chapter in Rhode Island signed on, as well
as the MIT GAMBIT Game Lab. I'm going to be putting together an
informational packet with info on game accessiblity, rules for the contest,
and the score sheet and so on soon.

Is anyone else interested in getting a hold of their local GGJ chapter and
get this happening there as well? Let me know and I can forward you the
information once it's complete.

I may also post it on the site for access to everyone.

Thanks!

I think since I'm now in the final final close out of the apartment here that I might be able to get the NYU Game Center to do it this year if I get in their faces. ;)

Any info you have would help!

Michelle
