AbleGamers hosts inaugural Video Game Accessibility Awards | Pocket Gamer.biz


On November 15th, AbleGamers hosted the Video Game Accessibility Awards 2020, the first of its kind in games. 

The event was put together in collaboration with AbleGamers and hosted across Twitch and YouTube by the nonprofit’s COO Steven Spohn, alongside industry vet and content creator Alanah Pearce. It aimed to spotlight video games and companies that are making a clear and conscious effort with their accessibility options.

During the two hour stream, the pair handed out accolades across a number of categories, including Clear Text, Same Controls But Different, and Improved Precision. The winners of each category were voted for by disabled gamers. 

A fundraiser for AbleGamers was also set up alongside the stream, allowing viewers to donate to the cause. It raised $6040 during the event.

It’s been an amazing week for AbleGamers too. Last week during Twitch’s GlitchCon, Twitch revealed live on stream that it would be donating $1m to the AbleGamers fund
