In celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 19 2023, Q-Games are proud to share details of a collaborative partnership with Sony Group and Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Q-Games provided development support for project Kinokobito, an innovative new gaming experience with a focus on rehabilitation. The game does not require use of a dedicated controller and starts automatically when the sensor camera recognises that a player has sat down in front of the monitor.
The player’s hands are used as the controller and the enjoyment of playing naturally leads to increased body movement, which helps with elements of rehabilitation. During recent testing at a nursing home, improvements in physical ability were observed following repeated periods of play, alongside an unexpected positive impact observed in regard to communication between residents.
