Fantastic to see the games industry body TIGA adopt a Game Accessibility category. Their first ever was awarded on the 6th of November 2014 in London to...
Somethin' Else: Audio Defence: Zombie Arena. An audio-game off shoot of the Papa Sangre franchise.
Northway Games: Deep Under the Sky and SixToStart: Zombies Run 3 made the (very short) short-list. The award criteria focussed on opening the game up to a wider audience through accessible design. I'd personally rather play Deep Under the Sky, but it is a hard one-switch game, requiring perfect timing, and it lost out for that reason I feel.
On the other side of the world, on the 29th of October 2014 at the Australian Game Developers Awards (their second), "Appointment With FEAR" from Tin Man Games walked away with the accessibility prize. Runners up were Bonza, Minimega and Framed, Loveshack Entertainment.
