Audiogame Jam 3: Oct 12th - 21st 2018
Audiogame Jam is a game jam event that challenges participants to make games that are playable without sight. It was created with the following goals:
to raise awareness of accessibility issues experienced by visually impaired people when playing videogames.
to encourage game developers to design their games with inclusivity and accessibility in mind.
to highlight the work of sight loss charities in helping visually impaired people access technology.
Games submitted should be playable without sight, relying almost entirely on audio.
When is Audiogame Jam 3?
Audiogame Jam 3 runs from October 12th until October 21st.
Where does it take place?
As all games are submitted online you can participate anywhere. You're welcome to arrange your own meet ups and events. Let us know so we can help promote it.
Is this for charity? Are any charities associated with Audiogame Jam?
We hope to raise money for charity and have a page on JustGiving.com to allow people to donate to the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB). RNIB is a UK-based sight loss charity that provides many services to blind and visually impaired people, including assistance on accessing technology. We encourage people entering Audiogame Jam 3 to have friends, family or co-workers sponsor their game.
