[games_access] Game Accessibility Information symbol

Thanks Michelle.

The Game Accessibility Information symbol is not to do away with the hunt for a PEGI/ESRB type system for accessibility (with that kind of scope and backing), but something for anyone. Especially (in my mind) indie / small scale developers who produce game wares but wouldn't have the funds to put it through such a system even if it did exist, but still would like to promote their game/game product's accessibility.



Also ties up with:

http://igda-gasig.org/about-game-accessibility/game-accessibility-top-ten/ (IGDA GASIG Top 10 - wish 10).

http://www.gameaccessibilityguidelines.com/full-list/ (General BASIC guideline).

Best wishes,

Barrie

Sounds great, Barrie! I, too, am looking forward to a productive new
year! And getting rid of this hospital acquired pneumonia -- breathing
is something I just can't overlook anymore! :)

Cheers!
Michelle
