Thoughts from a (girl) Gamer

Tara Voelker's thoughts. A lot about video games, a little about life

A short update and announcement.

So, this is rather short.

I’ve been busy with my new job at Irrational Games (which is awesome), adjusting to my new home, celebrating my birthday, and then doing some game accessibility work. There will be a more proper update later, as well as Hello Kitty car updates coming.

But for now, I just wanted to make this announcement.

As the IGDA GA SIG Chair, I got to do some awesome work with Film Victoria, and helped them incorportate game accessibility into their guidelines for funding.


Here’s the announcement, spread the word!




This is just a nice email I got from Brad over at Film Victoria I wanted to share!

Hey All,

I just wanted to thank Tara and everybody else who contributed to the IGDA GA SIG content (top 10, etc) that we’re making reference to.

We’ve had a brilliant response so far, developers completely understand and are more than happy to include accessibility measures in games of all sizes.

Very pleased to be able to say we have IGDA backing the initiative! Can’t wait to let you know how the first round of investments go…
