What is Games for All
Games for All is a discovery project at Carnegie Mellon University – Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) that aims to create a more accessible game on the experience level that enables a sense of empowerment.
Disabled players want to have the same fun and game experience as non-disabled players.
There are some common mismatches between players’ ability and game control schemes.
Explicit accessible features: Games offer accessibility options menu
Implicit accessible features: visual & audio feedback, menu navigation, game navigation, etc.
We are trying to address these mismatches
By addressing these problems, we hope to benefit more players including situational, temporary disabled, and non-disabled players.
