May the 19th 2016, was the fifth Global Accessibility Awareness Day, and a great day to see some of the pushes in games accessibility. Ian Hamilton has detailed these brilliantly over at his blog (with some extra quotes here). Three key accessible gaming videos from the day below. Things are moving in the right direction.

Sonic 2: Co-operative one-switch game for four players


"...Each button is randomly assigned to either up, down, left or A (jump). Every 30 seconds the key associated to each button changes. The players don't know what their buttons do so have to work it out as they play!" - via Alistair Aitcheson.

This is a fun take on a shared method of playing well known to switch gamers, especially for those not using Gaming Redux methods. I remember playing like this on an Asteroids machine once a child and at CGE-UK 2005 on Sonic with Chris Myers. It takes good co-operation. More so when your controls are randomly changing every half-minute.
