Managing At Home follows the story of Jerry and Joyce, an elderly couple. Players choose which character they relate to best, and follow that character through their journey after their first chemotherapy appointment. Patients must make difficult decisions about balancing their physical and social health, which impact the direction of the story.
Designing for the Elderly
Designing game interactions to be simple and intuitive for an elderly audience was a fun challenge. To make the game as accessible as possible, we used large, high contrast UI elements, matched all text with VO, and had no time-based actions in the game. Working on this project really opened my eyes to the need for more accessibility consideration in game development.
