DifficultyDifficulty

Adventures With Anxiety has 7 accessibility features for Difficulty which deal with how you can adjust the challenge of play, and assistance the game offers when you fail or get stuck.

Cognitive Pressure

Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.

Low Pressure: Game tasks aren't time-limited or there's a low-pressure mode. This avoids the pressure of being put on the clock for overarching missions, or failing tasks because you didn't reach a destination in time.

Adjust Speed: Adjust the overall speed of the game, or rewind play for a second attempt, to ease reaction times. By slowing the game, you have more time to interpret what is happening and then execute your actions. It also reduces the pressure on getting things right quickly or the first time you attempt them.

Save Anytime: The game automatically saves progress or you can save any time, and not lose progress. This avoids being forced back to the start of a level, or checkpoint when you fail a particular challenge.

Assistance

View Control Mapping: You can view a map of controls during play. This clearly displays the mappings of actions to buttons/keys/mouse/keyboard without having to leave the game.

Assistance When Stuck: The game notices if you get stuck and provides assistance. This can offer hints or tutorials popping up during play. It can suggest which difficulty settings to adjust or offer to skip past problematic levels.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials, instructions and tips. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate levels of detail. Ideally, this includes ongoing tips that relate to contexts in the game where the player is failing.

Adventures With Anxiety has 6 accessibility features for Reading which deal with how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose.

High Contrast Text: Text colour contrasts to the background or can be adjusted to be. The text in menus, instructions and other information is presented in high contrast with a solid background.

Subtitles

Any Speech has Subtitles: All spoken content has subtitles, or there is no speech in the game. This means there is no requirement to hear spoken dialogue or narrative to play the game.

Captions

Speaker Indicator and their Tone: Textual captions indicate who is speaking and their tone. This can also be indicated visually in the game with character icons or character expressions with text in speech bubbles next to the person speaking.
