The aim of this series is to have a spot to discuss how a game plays for people who are colorblind. For the unfamiliar, colorblindness is more like blurry vision than the ability to not see any color (except for a small percentage - monochromacy/achromatopsia). For those with poor vision, a small letter E far away is hard to discern, and a giant letter E right in front of them is easy to discern. Similarly for someone with red/green deficiency (deuteranopes) may have a hard time discerning a small red swatch far away, but close up it can be clearer. There is a wide spectrum of blurry vision problems, and there is also with color blindness. This review is for discussing how colors are used in this game, and how much colorblindness (atleast mine - deuteranomalous) effects gameplay.

For example, It's alot easier to compare colors when they are next to another, or if there is a large amount of color.

A small amount of color alone is harder Microbadge: I play with purple!





Microbadge: I play with Black! Microbadge: I play with white! Microbadge: I play with grey! Microbadge: I play with pink! Microbadge: I play with tan! Microbadge: I play with blue! Microbadge: I play with purple! Microbadge: I play with teal! Microbadge: I play with brown! Microbadge: I play with green! Microbadge: I play with red! Microbadge: I play with orange! Microbadge: I play with Yellow!




One of the comments below mentioned another site that offers color blind reviews (and a few other types of accessibility). If I come across any others, I'll link them here.
