About

Help us build press contact lists for our press releases and other materials that communicate progress and launch of our unique disability themed multimedia project.

Our goal is to elevate the concept of disability from something seen as limited and niche using a unique project that has potential of having broad appeal while having a real message, meaning and purpose. We are developing the world's first video game about a character who finds himself in a wheelchair and goes through the five stage Help us develop a sponsorship offer for sponsors. We hope to reach to brands not only in the disability industry, but also mainstream sponsors, elevating the concept of disability from something seen as limited and niche using a unique project that has potential of having broad appeal while having a real message, meaning and purpose. We are developing the world's first video game about a character who finds himself in a wheelchair and goes through the five stages of grieving after an accident. On his journey he is faced with a number of issues people in his life have faced he isn't aware of, from racism to abuse to homophobia. Our key message is that everybody has something they struggle with, although some issues are more visible than others. We want this project to turn into an educational program where people with disabilities and veterans can get skills to succeed in the competitive gaming industry while working on a project that talks about their community. And the same time, noting the rise of empathy in gaming we think it's a more powerful medium allowing users to experience real emotions from the safety of their couch. We are at the stage of producing a 2 scene demo for the game. Our team already includes interns and volunteers that have faced struggles in their life: wheelchair users, deaf and hard of hearing, chemo survivors, members of the LGBT community. We have the 5 episode summary and the first episode script. We are lacking the business development aspect that is required to secure our relatively smaller budget.
