Play, Connect, and Grow

Behind every game is a player, with unique desires, abilities, and interests. Our work begins with understanding each player’s needs. Learning what games are their favorites, what challenges they face, and which communities can provide the best support. Our team not only connects players with disabilities to inclusive gaming communities but also equips them with the knowledge to explore new games. With every game added to our Knowledgebase, we’re creating a world where everyone can find enjoyment in gaming.

Let’s Partner Up for Accessibility

Your support powers our partnerships with gaming studios, local businesses, and community organizations. Together, we can bring the thrill of gaming directly to those who need it. We’re not just about playing games, we’re creating memories with accessible gaming nights, inclusive partnered events, and even pioneering accessible Esports tournaments.
