Edit: Our schedule is up! Check it out at https://tiltify.com/events/rt-drivequest-for-ablegamers/
Start your engines gamers, because it’s time for a DriveQuest! We’re going to help our new friends from RTX, The AbleGamers Foundation, raise money for their “Driving Home Accessibility” campaign to create a mobile accessibility lab that they can drive to conventions, hospitals, care facilities, and more!
We’ll start our RT DriveQuest for AbleGamers at 11am this Saturday (September 13th). We’ll be virtually driving for 24 hours in Austin at Gamerz Galaxy and we’ll be streaming the whole thing on Twitch. With competitions and free-play in games like Mario Kart, Trials, Grand Theft Auto, and more, as well as a bunch of giveaways and prizes it’s bound to be a ton of fun! Come out and join us either in-person at Gamerz Galaxy or online and help us raise money and awareness for AbleGamers!
You can donate, watch the stream, and follow our progress at our Tiltify page at http://tiltify.com/events/rt-drivequest-for-ablegamers
We’re also planning a couple of special events for our stream, including a demo of the soon-to-be-released indie game, Roundabout!
Not only is it a driving game (Okay, we’ll, it’s SORT OF a driving game. Technically it’s a open-world driving puzzle game), but the cool folks at No Goblin have made a point to add several features that AbleGamers recommends (via their Includification guide) to make games more accessible.
Other events we have planned include…
- A Skype call with some of the AbleGamers team to answer questions about their mission and how to make games that are accessible to everyone!
- GTA5 play-date with RT Community group The Angels!
- Live competitions in Trials, Mario Kart, and more for FABULOUS* prizes!
- And more, possibly terrible things, depending on how much we raise…
We’re still hashing out a schedule for all of those things and we’ll post as soon as it’s finalized. For now, keep an eye on our Tiltify page and make plans to join us on Saturday! With YOUR help, AbleGamers will be able to continue to make sure that everyone can game!
Jake LOVED gaming on the PS2. Sadly, he had lost the ability. UNTIL he met us! Adroit has given gaming back to Jake. pic.twitter.com/OCTdyEqprt
