AbleGamers announces 2013 Accessibility Award winners


The AbleGamers Foundation announced the winners of its 2013 Accessibility Awards, highlighting industry achievements and notable progress toward the group's goal of ensuring gameplay accessibility for players with disabilities.

AbleGamers named Square Enix's Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn as its Accessible Mainstream Game of the Year, finding that the MMORPG approached "almost every area of accessibility with high standards and practical application." Final Fantasy 14 scored a 9.1 out of 10 in AbleGamers' accessibility review, with players reporting that the game was well-suited for one-handed play and sufficiently playable for those with hearing or vision impairments.

AbleGamers additionally honored Galactic Cafe's The Stanley Parable as its Best Accessible Indie Game of the Year, and named the foot-controlled StinkyBoard accessory as its Best New Device or Peripheral. The full list of award recipients is available at the AbleGamers website.
