I’ve written about both Twine and Twine 2 as platforms that are very friendly to completely new developers and those who haven’t previously programmed, but Twine is also a platform that can offer accessibility from the user end.

Making Accessible Games with Twine Audio

All text-based games build with well-structured HTML have a strong potential to be fairly easily manipulated through adaptive technologies, including screen readers. Whenever we’re thinking about integrating a new technology into teaching and learning, it’s important to consider its accessibility. This can mean considering principles of universal design, as George Williams has discussed several times on ProfHacker in the past, as well as the needs of specific user groups. Games as a whole are all over the place in their accessibility, which can make some games less usable for many users. Recently I’ve been working with a team of students and faculty specifically building a game for low-vision users.

Have you built or taught with a great accessible game? Twine Audio. AudioKit Blog. Announcing Version 2.1!

AudioKit Blog

∞ Version 2.1 is a very substantial improvement to AudioKit, and we recommend that all users upgrade. Dynamic Libraries and MIT License The big news is that we have enabled AudioKit and its dependencies to be dynamic libraries. This allows us to license AudioKit under the liberal MIT License. Stéphane Peter really took charge of updating AudioKit's dependencies to be dynamic libraries and he's made so many contributions to AudioKit that he's earned the right to be a core team member. Continuous Integration Testing We've started using TravisCI for continuous integration testing. CRI ADX2 - CRI Middleware, Inc.

This is a continuation of my blog series on the top audio middleware options for game music composers, this time focusing on the psai Interactive Music Engine for games, developed by Periscope Studio, an audio/music production house.

Game Music Middleware, Part 5: psai

Initially developed as a proprietary middleware solution for use by Periscope’s in-house musicians, the software is now being made available commercially for use by game composers. In this blog I’ll take a quick look at psai and provide some tutorial resources that will further explore the utility of this audio middleware. If you’d like to read the first four blog entries in this series on middleware for the game composer, you can find them here:

DirectMusic For The Masses

It replaces the basic code that Windows applications use to get MIDI data out of a file, through the computer, and to the output device. It's a completely rewritten and rethought system, all the way down to what noises come out and how. Has it arrived too late? Now that so many games are using Red Book CD audio and other streaming mechanisms, is DirectMusic enough to make MIDI relevant again to game developers? I think so - no matter how you currently handle music in your games, DirectMusic is definitely worth checking out. DirectMusic starts out by addressing the major problems of Windows' old MidiOut API, such as shaky timing and limited real-time control. Like other SDKs from Microsoft, DirectMusic will try to cover many bases, not all of them related to games.
