My game is called "Crack the Code". The main point of the game is to win the Color Sleuth. When the player gets 10 points, they have successfully cracked the code and they win the game. The players learn about the theme in my game by hearing the in-game sounds and the color change. I would hope my game allows blind and deaf people to play my game.
Congratulations! Like some of the other judges have said, seeing you work on something that is targeting the accessibility issue is super dope. I commend you for taking the time to consider accessibility in the design of your project. I really love the fact that you took your passions for puzzles and challenges in games that you play and turned it into something that can be enjoyed by others. In your slides, you mentioned that if you had had more time you would have continued to build out some more levels and I highly encourage you to do so. I also think that you should definitely follow up on your instinct to test it out with some users who are in fact blind or deaf and you'd be surprised at how much useful feedback you would get. It seems like you were already thinking about that and wanted to let you know that you should definitely trust that gut instinct and follow up! Would love to hear more about how your game develops! The one thing that I would recommend is that if you ever submit your game out again after you've worked on it some more, definitely see if you can provide a link for us to play as well!
The inclusiveness of your game and the inspiration behind it are very admirable! Learning about the theme through the in game audio and visuals was a great idea. Can't wait to see how you expand or transform this idea for future projects!
This is such a breath of fresh air! We really need more inclusive and accessible games like yours; I could see your game expanded as an educational tool for both people with and without disabilities. I am excited to see your project expand!
I loved how you shared your inspiration for this project! Since your project uses levels, it will have lots of opportunities for you to expand and grow the project. Accessibility is always something important to think about when developing new software. I enjoyed how you thought about accessibility from the beginning. Many career developers don't consider accessibility needs until very far along into the development process. Waiting too long to think about accessibility, can make the code and design much more difficult to change. Keep up the good work!
I am very impressed. It is very challenging to build a game that is inclusive for people with disabilities. What I especially love about this game specifically, is that instead of making a game for people without disabilities that tries to teach them about living with disabilities, you instead explored how to incorporate accessibility into gameplay. Great job!
