Researchers from DIDPATRI and TransMedia Catalonia will present various projects on video game accessibility at the second edition of SAGA, the Gaming Show. 

The second edition of SAGA, the Gaming Show, will take place on 1 and 2 December 2023 at La Farga de l’Hospitalet. SAGA is an initiative put forth by the Catalan-language NGO Plataforma per la Llengua that intends to become a benchmark in the field of video games in Catalan.

The AccessCat Network will have a booth at SAGA so researchers from DIDPATRI (UB) and TransMedia Catalonia (UAB) can share their research in accessibility and transformative video games. Recently, DIDPATRI won the eleventh International Educational Games Competition with the video game Julia: A Science Journey, whereas TransMedia Catalonia has several pioneering projects related to video game accessibility.

Tickets to SAGa are available on their website, where you can also see more information on the event. We encourage you to attend and, of course, to visit the AccessCat researchers to learn about accessible and transformative video games:
