Games are a wonderful thing. They help us to grow, connect, experience new things, smile, and forget, even for just a moment, about the hardships in our lives. Anyone can and should benefit from them.
SpecialEffect is a charity whose work includes helping people with severe physical disabilities to access and control video games to the best of their abilities. They provide specialist assessments, advice, and support to enable them to benefit from the fun, friendship, and inclusion that can come from access to video games, leisure technology, and communication.
SpecialEffect specialist staff work on a one-to-one basis with people of all ages to match or modify technology like adapted game controllers or eye-controlled computers to best suit their needs. The gameaccess.info
website helps them answer thousands of enquiries from around the world and the freely available accessibility utilities like EyeMine and Eye Gaze Games website bring the magic of inclusion within reach for thousands more people worldwide.
“We’re delighted to announce this charity partnership with Quantic Lab, which tees off with their support of our inaugural golf tournament in September,” said SpecialEffect Fundraiser Nick Steeter.
“It’s a partnership of particular significance as we look to build awareness of globally influential SpecialEffect projects like Eye Gaze Games and EyeMine, which are helping disabled people across the world to enjoy the fun and inclusion that video games have to offer. We’re very grateful to all the team at Quantic Lab for this opportunity and look forward to working together.”
