Special Effect GameBase

Special Effect logo, beneath an image of a young boy in a wheelchair playing an accessible game."SpecialEffect is a charitable organisation dedicated to helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games. For these children, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play, and we can help them and their parents to find out which games they CAN play, and how to adapt those games that they can't.

Over the last three years we’ve been gathering information for the SpecialEffect GameBase about a huge range of computer games and leisure software. We've been finding out if and how each game can be played using access technology like switches, headpointers and adapted keyboards. Success with using this technology for games and leisure can lead to huge gains in self-confidence and motivation.

Perhaps most importantly of all, it can provide a way for young people with disabilities to socialise and compete with others on a level playing field. For more information about SpecialEffect, email info@specialeffect.org.uk or contact us by telephone on 01608 811909 or 0791 807 7177."

It's a great project that needs game reviewers to join up and start writing. Be honest, and help others to find excellent games and avoid shabby inaccessible ones. See you there?
