Racketboy Podcast #26 – The Able Gamers
Mark Barlet, Dr. Ben Hertz, and Steve Spohn of the Able Gamers
The Able Gamers have been working since 2004 to make a wider variety of games accessible to a wider variety of gamers. They do fascinating work, bringing together the gaming industry and gamers with disabilities, their families and friends, and an active and passionate community. In the interview they talk about their past, present, and future, share many interesting stories about how gamers with disabilities create innovative methods for enjoying modern and retro games, and shed light on how their mission has been received by various developers and publishers over the years. The Able Gamers operate as a non for profit advocacy group, and happily accept financial donations as well as contributions of time and other resources.
