Hi! I’ve written a post for AbleGamers detailing all the work that went into making MidBoss more accessible.
MidBoss: Making an Accessible Game Solo
MidBoss, a possession-based, traditional, turn-based roguelike will have just come out when this is posted. It’s a game that I made mostly by myself over the course of four and a half years, creating the engine, graphics, sounds, and all of the code.
My name is Emma Maassen, but you can call me Eniko. I’m a Dutch queer person currently living in the United States. Many of my friends belong to various minorities, so the mission statement for my studio - Kitsune Games - is ‘traditional gaming made accessible and diverse’. Accessibility is something I feel strongly about, both on a physical as well as a social level.
In this post I’ll outline the things I did to make MidBoss more accessible for people with various limitations, and hopefully convince you that doing this doesn’t need to be the herculean task many think it is.
