Interview With Gaming Charity Special Effect

I recently had a chance to talk to Special Effect founder Mick Donegan, and to learn a bit about how he was motivated to help disabled gamers and their families make the most of the medium. Special Effect is a UK-based charity which specialises in helping people with serious disability to use eye-control technology in their gaming (which is something you’ll be able to try out if you are attending the Eurogamer Expo in September).
