Game Accessibility Guidelines - a straightforward reference for inclusive game design

News: 

An international project has launched to advise game developers on how to open up their audience to the up to 20% of gamers with disabilities.

It's an area that the Australasian games industry has a strong reputation for, including Film Victoria's world leading funding and education work and Team Bondi's reknowned accessibility features in LA Noire.

The website offers all developers guidelines on how to better serve the needs of gamers with a range of visual, hearing, speech, learning and motor conditions. The hope is that by highlighting the relatively simple changes needed, the games industry as a whole will be able to ensure that they quickly become part of its normal working practices.
