Recap: October 2018 Lightning Talks

meetup attendees watch as Al Puzzuoli demos accessible game

Thank you to everyone who came out for our Lightning Talks meetup on October 24, 2018 at Grand Circus.

While we didn’t have a large turnout, we had good discussions about making games more accessible and how design thinking can be used in our work projects.

Shout out to our speakers Al Puzzuoli and Devin Drake for their lightning talks. Here’s a quick recap with resources and slideshow.

Resources from Al’s Talk on Game Accessibility

  • For the latest audio game related news, tips and resources, check out Audiogames
  • A very interesting talk (35-minute video) by Karen Stevens, head of accessibility at Electronic Arts (EA)
  • One of the blind gamers Al mentioned during his talk runs his own YouTube channel. He has an unusual setup, and streams all sorts of gaming goodness.

Design Thinking

Thanks to Devin for sharing her slide deck.

We’re finishing up details for our next Refresh Detroit meetup, expected the last week in November. Stay tuned for more info!
