This is unfortunately true. For the last few years I've gone to sight
village each summer. This is basically the uk Vi tech show, where companies,
charities and organizations wrent stalls and show off their stuff, while
lots of people turn up and look.
Not once though have I seen any accessible games mentioned there at all.
I believe Azabat had a stall one year, ---- but they certainly don't go
frequently, ---- nor is azabat any kind of a good representation of what
audio games are like in general.
this does give me an idea though. Maybe I should see if I could go to site
village as a representative of the gameaccessibility special interest group
and audiogames.net, ---- to do a general show off of accessible games.
I wouldn't really need any more than my laptop (which has lots of games on
it anyway), a plug, and possibly a net connection if i wanted to show off
something online like sound rts or Che martin's games, ---- and using a
double sterrio jack I could wear one pear of headphones, participants
another, and thus I could give instructions.
The show is not until next July, --- -but I'm not sure how late you have to
book your places, or what you have to pay to the organizers to get a stall.
Maybe though I'll research this and suggest the idea to Richard and Sander.
While it might not be ideal, ---- it'd certainly be a good way of reaching a
lot of Vi people who may or may not have access to the net, ---- and sinse I
would be representing audiogames.net, ---- I could show several different
types of game depending upon what peoples interest was.
hmmm, I'll look in to that one and see where it goes.
Beware the grue!
