Game Together Accessibility Fundraiser
16th September 2022
Rebellion is working together with Everyone Can to support their Game Together annual online fundraiser that takes place on the weekend of the 17th & 18th September.
Everyone Can is a charity that specialises in technology that can improve and enrich the lives of disabled people. Through the careful research of both existing and developing digital technologies they’re able to deliver services that can increase the level of independence for disabled people.
Game Together is an annual online fundraiser aimed at helping disabled gamers by spreading awareness and raising much needed funds to provide assistive technology.
The event encourages people to stream themselves playing their favourite games and completing community challenges. So, we’ve asked the Sniper Elite 5 dev team to create a list of challenges for seasoned sniper or fresh cadets – varying in difficulty!
- They’re Behind You!
During Axis Invasion, get a photo of yourself directly behind your opponent.
- Chain Reaction
Kill the most enemies with one bullet.
- Sniper Minus Sniper
Complete a level without using your Sniper Rifle.
- Nut on my Watch
Only kill enemies with testicle shots.
- Gnothing Like a Gnice Gnomish Gname
On Guernsey, only kill enemies whose names begin with G, N, O, M or E.
- Don’t Need Guns Where We’re Going
Complete a level without using any guns.
To better advocate accessibility in games and spread awareness, we’ve also put together a set of guidelines people can adhere to when playing:
Describe all cutscenes to your audience and, when you can, describe the environment.
Play the game with an Xbox Adaptive Controller or other custom hardware that helps players with physical impairments to play more easily.
Visually Accessible Streaming
Have all game text set to the largest it can be, and all text/prompt opacities to 100%.
SightlessKombat (Gamer without sight & Accessible Gaming and Immersive Technologies Research Officer – RNIB) and Cari Watterton (Senior Accessibility Designer – Rebellion) will be streaming this weekend in aid of Everyone Can. The stream will take place at 3pm-5pm on Sunday 18th on Sightless’ channel where they’ll be running a charity raffle for Sniper Elite 5 keys during their stream.
