This is such a great thing that's happening for blind people. I don't know about you, but I love to play games! I love this cause and think it's a great endevous, I hope you'll consider supporting it!
“My wife and I both work with and have many friends who are visually impaired. We are passionate about board games and want to make this brilliant hobby accessible to more people. If our campaign is successful we will start producing a new line of products that would add accessibility to existing board and card games. These accessibility kits would be add-ons to games that would allow both blind and sighted players to play together. ” – Richard Gibbs, 64 Oz Games.
It is no surprise that this campaign has already gathered the support of over twenty game publishers and the list is growing all the time. Official supporters of the campaign include: Plaid Hat Games, Portal Games, Rio Grande Games, Crash Games, Eagle Games - Gryphon Games, Game Salute & Gamelyn Games.
“We are not just asking people to back our campaign because it is a good cause, we are offering backer rewards suitable for both blind and sighted players. Our game Yoink! Is a tactile micro-game that everyone can enjoy.” – Emily Gibbs, 64 Oz Games
