Are you asking the community here, the developers, the ghost of Steve Jobs, or just praying to God?

Not that this isn't a lovely dream. I would love to play Fortnight.

I hate to break it to you, but I don't think it can be done. The gam
requires so much actions to be performed. Fortnite that is. Jumping from a plane, cutting down trees, avoiding the storm, aiming is really difficult.
It would also be unfair if we didn't have to aim and we could just shoot easily, that would make sighted people grumble at our advantages. Not even that, Fortnite requires building as well. How can we perform all these tasks on a 4 to about 10 inch screen?
Plus its structure is completely designed with graphics. And you know how VoiceOver and graphics go. voiceOver glazes over when it comes to graphics.

My apologies Amir, but I fully agree with Tunmi. The game itself is too visual that there is no way the developer could ever make Fortnite accessible. I don't know about the other game, but if it's a heavily visual game, I just don't see it ever being made accessible.

I see some of us cannot accept the fact that not everything can be made accessible. You do understand how visual Fort Night is, right? The same for Road Blocks. Then again, I have no interest in those games. I may want to look at it from time to time, but I don't care to play it.

Being a gamer myself, I'll say that most games can be made accessible, if the companies want, and if someone who have experience with the actual gameplay can come up with some ideas on how to make it more accessible.
So @amir: I wanna challenge you. When you are asking to make the games you're talking about accessible, I assume you have thought about, out from experiences from the gameplay, how those games could be made accessible. Please share your thoughts about this. You can't just say please make this and this accessible without actually having thought about how it should be made accessible. Please make flying a helicopter accessible. But, how??? :)
