Actually not so many now, but there are also not so many making games either.

Honestly, how many developers of games for the blind gamer can you think of that announce deadlines and don't come through on their promises or don't let gamers know what's up? Unless I read your message wrong, you make it sound as though there are quite a few, which I don't think is the case.

You know its kind of hard to market something to such a small audience and spread out community. There are so many email lists that is ridiculous. Every time you think you got it covered there pops up some one that gets mad and starts another email list the same as what they left. If you don't be leave me just go to Freelists.org You will find a ton of blind lists and if you go to google or yahoo. You will find the same lists. Don't even think about the org's, because they really don't care unless they get some change! By what has ben said the org's posted on there sites as games for us to play are not only for kids but think all blind are mind set kids. This has come up in the mag years ago and the answer is still the same. They know out there of the games. i have seen lots of dead sites advertising these games. But when you have some many put games out and then change the dead sites don't. plus you have the fact that a while back there was a lot of problems with getting these games. people paid and got told shut up. Some get to little to spend and when stolen! They don't forget but do tell all they know. i don't put that blame on the community, its the developer that made that problem. They put deadlines up that they don't meet. When they should be doing it like the pro's. When the game is done there it is, as dev put out and not as community nagged! Any changes are called next version just like any other software, but the community seems to dictate how that is to be done. So do the dev's actually run and own there companies? Just like sheep that think they have a mind when all along its the dog that states the law.

As for games and awareness, this is a topic that I've debated so many times
before.

I do think that it's primarily the responsibility of the developers to
promote their games. There's plenty of avinues out there like has been
pointed out before not including the rnib and such organizations.

Certainly for the online games that we have there's places like
topwebgames.com which I know charge but I don't think they're astronomically
pricy.

Sadly it's people by accident stumbling on these games and that in itself
isn't good enough. Even audyssey as a mag isn't doing the job it's meant to
do because 1 it hasn't been updated regularly in god knows how long and 2
even when it is it's not distributed widely.
