Wish Guardian is an upcoming indie game, created by a predominantly disabled team. We want to share tips and tricks we learned about accessibility to fellow developers and gamers. Accessibility revolves around allowing people with disabilities to enjoy your game. This could be as simple as font resizing, as complex as key rebinding, or as creative as a new disability-related story line. No matter your type of game, the Wish Guardian team is here to help make it accessible to anyone.

Meet a diverse cast of characters and learn their stories.
