Disabled and neurodiverse game developers face a number of difficulties working in the games industry. In this panel, a group of disabled games developers from different disciplines will discuss their experiences and issues surrounding the creation of games while disabled. Topics include how being disabled influences their work, challenges that they have encountered due to their disabilities, ways game development could be made more accessible to disabled game developers, and why they all enjoy making and playing games.
