The 23-year-old student and game developer Noah Moltenberg Lundén, from Karlstad, has lived with a visual impairment all his life and always liked games.

"When I was a kid, the games were simple and the graphics were very simple. Then it was easier for me to play just like everyone else," says Noah.

However, nowadays, game graphics are often advanced and hyper-realistic. This makes it difficult for Noah to play without aids such as audio description and custom lighting and picture settings.

That's how the idea for Noah's game "Blind Survival" came about, a zombie game with only sound that can be played even if you're completely blind.

Many players with visual impairments

In addition to Noah, there are many other players on the internet with visual impairments who are asking for more accessible games.

Several of them post videos in which they review the accessibility of different games. Some even develop their own mods, or "mods", that can be downloaded to already existing games to get more settings adapted to visual impairments.

How game companies work

Gaming companies are also starting to take accessibility more seriously, according to Noah.

"It's gotten better and better over time. But overall, some of them are much better than others.

In addition to adaptation to visual impairments, there are game companies that have created special controls and functions for those who have hearing impairments or mobility impairments.

Kulturnyheter has asked several game companies about how they work with accessibility. See their answers in the fact box at the bottom.
