Master thesis - Modifying existing games to make them accessible using eyetracking technology

Using eye-gaze from eye tracking technology is a way to make games accessible for users with physical or cognitive disabilities that has been researched many times before. A paper from 2009 describes four approaches to enabling eye-gaze for use with games. We suggest that there is a fifth way in modifying an existing game using reflection and code injection at runtime. 

The aim for this project is to determine what games could be suitable to make accessible, if a common framework can be established to enable accessibility in similar games and to find potential new interaction methods.

The goal for this thesis is to:

  • Create game prototypes by adding eye tracking and control schemes to existing games.
  • Evaluate different assistive interactions and their usability for different types of games.
  • Find out what the users are looking for in games.

 We believe you:

  • Have experience building games in Unity
  • Know how to extend Unity editor
  • Want to work with people with disabilities and evaluate your work together with them.

 Your application should include:

  • CV
  • cover letter
  • transcripts
