Join Accessible World's Tek Talk for Game Night with Michael Feir,  Monday,
October 31, 2011

As fall and   cooling temperatures make their  presence felt, our thoughts
turn to inside activities.  The computer plays a huge role as we make
entertainment choices. Michael  Feir will present a fun-filled hour of
promising entries  for   the months to come. 

  If you are     Eager for new and varied selections,  Tek Talk's Game Night
will acquaint you with them.  
The most recent development  is King of Dragon Pass and is just one you can
play with 
the use of your Iphone. Why has the Iphone emerged as such a promising
platform for  blind users? As you while away the hours with this form of
entertainment,  have you ever wondered what goes in to their development?
What happens behind the scenes  before a decision is made to market a
specific one? How is that final choice  made?   What historical factors
play  a part in the result?   Does the impatience of some gamers cost the
community developer talent? Like all things, game development  is   a
process, and  is often a long one   from  original concept to final
production.    What is involved  and why does it take so much time before
new games become available?     Is there any way we  can help speed up this
tedious process? Changing demographics and a dismal economy affect the
decisions companies make. How Will this result in fewer   new accessible
games  in the   future?      
If you love fun and are looking for new options,     this is a Tek Talk you
won't want to miss.
