Hey Steve, I was wondering how useful video games can really be to solve problems. Is it not more wise to invest in truly life-improving changes for disabled people instead of supplying a niche interest? donβ€˜t you believe they need a better life, not just a bit of entertainment?

Hi Aston, That's a fair question. Imagine that you have a mind that's willing and a body that isn't able, which prevents you from interacting with your friends and family. Video games provide an opportunity for that connection to happen. For people to experience love & laughter

Now, all of that sounds like a Hallmark movie. But take into account there are at least 46 million potential players with disabilities in America alone. Staggering, right? For many, video games aren't just niche entertainment, they provide a way to prevent social isolation.

Being alone is a fear most of us can relate to. We don't want to be alone, don't want to miss out, to spend every day thinking about how difficult life is. We provide a means for people to access away to make sure they can be included in an inclusive community and enable play.

I’m no expert, yet been working w/ folks w/ disabilities for past year, & important to remember the most important moments are often the briefest. The times when for a moment, all one’s troubles vanish. These are the memory makers! See related story here
