[games_access] Looking for One Switch Games thoughts...

Hi Eelke,

I do not understand this " I also synthesize three different strategies
that are used to make games switch accessible."

Do you have a document about it, a website, some pages?
Is there a short version about it (when it is a long information) ?

Best regards,
Sandra

Hi Tim,

<shamelessselfpromotion>
I got a few one switch research findings on my website
http://eelke.com/oneswitchgames.html
Including a 1 switch bejeweled, first person shooter and monkeyball game.
I also synthesize three different strategies that are used to make games
switch accessible.

Best Eelke

Good calls, Tara.

Also - "Squid Yes: Not So Octopus" and Fishie Fishie 50 are
one-switch playable on Xbox Live, and there's more. Fishing Girl I think
too... Love the theme of Gaya. Nice one.

Games for Health in Boston? Eleanor and myself will be there
as well!

A 1 switch game I recommend is Shoot 1 Up. It isnt one
switch by default, but you can turn that option on in the menu. It's pretty
fun. You can download if for a dollar from the indie channel on XBox Live.
It's pretty fun.Here is a video showing all of the accessibility features:

I also recommend checking out a game that was part of the
Global Game Jam.... It was designed to be one switch.You can read about it,
see a video and download it here:

I'm giving a presentation on one switch games at
Games 4 Health in May, and wanted to ping the list for thoughts, ideas,
resources, etc. on this broad topic.

For example http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/ is a
fantastic resource and one I'm pretty familiar with. Any other suggestions,
including any "not made for one switch but playable as one switch"
commercial games?

The same goes for resources and ideas for one switch
games created without accessibility in mind. The Gamma 4 one button
competition for GDC 2010 was a good example of this. I talked with some of
the developers at GDC, and was sort of surprised to find out some of them
had no idea that one switch interactions were viewable from the
accessibility point of view. I was pleased that when I mentioned
accessibility and one switch design was a whole "culture" out there already,
a few developers had those proverbial lightbulbs go off in their minds.
