A mix of one-switch games. From top left clockwise, PC game Fotonica, PS3 game Everybody's Golf, Dreamcast and Xbox Shenmue darts and Obscure laser-disk game Badlands.

Game Not Over

Video games are fun and also give people the power to do amazing things that they would be unable to in real life.

With the right specialised hardware, many standard video games can be played by anyone, no matter the disability. "One Switch Gaming" is especially interested in games playable with a single switch, and in campaigning for accessibility features in all games.
