Busy Summer

Hello again, I’m back for another update. Things have been quite busy, and interesting, since the past post, so here’s what’s been going on.

We are just starting the fall rush of games, and there many good ones on the way, or out already. Gears 5 just came out. The Link’s Awakening remake will soon be out on the Switch. Then there are games like Shenmue III, Doom Eternal, Outer Worlds, Borderlands 3, and too many more I can’t even remember. Quite a few recent releases have also started including more accessibility features as well, especially Gears 5. I will definitely be taking a look at that on a future Mixer stream and/or YouTube video.

Then there are all the indie titles that are also doing some wonderful things with game accessibility. The Vale, Collapsus, and Lost and Hound are just a few off the top of my head. Two cool audio games were also just released on IOS, and in one case Android. Circus Master’s Revenge is now out for IOS, and if you are a fan of Audio Defense Zombie Arena, you’ll probably want to check this one out. Audio Wizards is also available for both Android and IOS, and is doing very well. I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

Speaking of game accessibility, all of the sessions for this year’s Game Accessibility Conference are now available via YouTube, including the panel I was invited to be on talking about low vision game accessibility. Check out the Projects page for the link to that, as well as other recent podcast appearances and other things I’ve been working on.

Speaking of podcasts, the A4G Podcast is back on track. We were having some technical difficulties with Anchor during part of July and August, but the show is back every Sunday for new topics on games, game accessibility, and whatever else might happen.

Which leads me to my final update… Amazingly enough, I now have a girlfriend. Since beginning of July, Riley, my other co-host of A4G, and I have been going out. Things are going really well, and we’re now able to record A4G in person.

So yeah, it’s been a pretty busy, and pretty great summer.
