2008 (English)In: Comput. Games Allied Technol., CGAT - Anim., Multimedia, IPTV Edutainment, Proc., 2008, 161-167 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Many games are not accessible for many gamers with disabilities for a number of reasons. One problem is that there is no general model or framework for how existing game accessibility guidelines, interaction design patterns and solutions can be implemented. This makes it hard to evaluate the complexity and resources needed which are key questions for game developers. The purpose of the GAIM is to propose a general model for implementing existing solutions for making games more accessible. The approach taken to achieve the purpose is a case study of implementing existing design patterns and guidelines for game accessibility, by studying existing games. The results are a proposed model for implementing game accessibility, comparison tables of existing games and interviews with developers.
