Advancing Accessibility

22 August 2023

Inclusivity is at the core of Player Research, where accessibility means deliberately designing games to include disabled players. Wherever you’re at in your accessible games development and design journey, Advancing Accessibility will help you create inclusive player experiences – bringing your vision of gaming to diverse player communities.

When organisations in the games industry don’t prioritise accessibility, they risk shutting out people who want to experience their games.

Collaborating with disabled players and expert accessibility consultants, we enable gamedev teams to design accessible and inclusive titles, with all of your players in mind.

By leveraging our partnership with Keywords Studios – the largest video games service provider in the world – Player Research delivers expert games research, testing and marketing at scale.

Player Research provides a suite of services especially to support the progression of accessibility and inclusivity in gaming. No matter the scale of the studio or publisher, we are the global partner for the creation, evaluation, and marketing of accessible games.

These services will draw upon the expertise of several Keywords studios: including TrailerFarm, SPOV and Descriptive Video Works — bringing game-changing capabilities for making accessible games and marketing content, including auditing and research, accessible design, co-dev, audio description, accessible trailers and more – each with the involvement of the accessibility community and disabled players. The end goal is to support development teams making video games more accessible to their disabled players.

Together, we can bring cultural understanding and lived experiences of diverse players to advance accessible gaming experiences.
