Making Games Better for Gamers with Colourblindness & Low Vision | Designing for Disability

Published on 15 Nov 2021 / In Gaming Design

Video games are for everyone. But disabled people can be left out if developers don’t consider their needs. In this series of videos, I’ll be sharing guidelines and best practices for making games more accessible to a wide range of disabilities. This time, I’m looking at design choices and menu options that will affect those who are colourblind or have low vision.
