AssistiveWare recently announced the launch of, a new website devoted to bringing game related information to Mac users who have physical disabilities. IMG contributor Michael Phillips serves as editor for the site which offers news, game reviews, and other articles related to game accessibility.

Check out their release:

AssistiveWare, at the ATIA tradeshow in Orlando, announced a new web site about gaming on Mac OS X: This new site is created by and for Mac users with disabilities and provides information on how people with physical disabilities can enjoy the latest and greatest games on Mac OS X.

The site has three main sections: (1) Feature articles about general gaming topics; (2) Reviews discussing individual games; (3) Short descriptions of games with a special focus on their accessibility.

"I have been designing universal access solutions for Mac OS X since 2002 and one of the most frequently asked questions by users is not whether they can do their homework or write the next great novel, but about what games can be played," said David Niemeijer, AssistiveWare's CTO. "With we have created a platform where users can exchange their gaming experiences and can share tips and tricks."

"I have been gaming with a switch on the Mac since 1995, long before Mac OS X, long before sites like this even existed. I had no guidance, no advice," said Michael Phillips, AssistiveGaming editor and long-time Inside Mac Games contributor. "Part of me totally understands why this site is important, but another part finds it kind of sad. I notice that both assistive technology users and specialists are afraid to try new things, think outside the box, or worse, people never even consider the fact that gaming is possible at all."

The Assistive Gaming team welcomes additional contributors, irrespective of what special access hardware and/or software they use or what games they like to play.
