9 Things Every Game Designer Can Do To Be More Inclusive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The only thing stopping games from being inclusive is the developers. Being inclusive is not a "bonus if we have enough time", but needs to be a core focus of a project from the earliest stage to the final product.

This talk will show developers a few simple concepts that they can keep in mind to greatly increase the inclusivity their final products. A large number of developers recognize this is as an important issue, but don’t think they have the resources to do anything about it. If more developers did these things, they could increase their potential audience tremendously. This isn't about altruism, it's just good business practice
