Abstract Today, computer games are considered as an important source of entertainment for people of all ages, genders and socioeconomic backgrounds. However, the game development industry releases games which not only require but in some cases challenge human sensory and motor abilities. Therefore, the vast majority of these games are rendered inaccessible for disabled people, in particular for visually and motor impaired. King Pong is a universally accessible remake of the classic Pong game fostering the inclusion of people with disabilities to computer games entertainment. King Pong is targeted not only to disabled but also to able-bodied users and thus promotes collaboration and interaction between diverse user groups. King Pong focuses on the cross-modal equivalence and multi-sensory perception around the concept of a multimodal game space - visual, auditory and haptic display. Α key objective of this work is to combine and integrate all these modalities in order to significantly reduce the effect of certain user limitations on interaction and gaming. To this end, King Pong employs an innovative auditory environment and several haptic devices. In particular, King Pong supports a spatially localized audio environment and force feedback (translating sound into haptic feedback). It may be played either by one player and the computer as opponent or by two players. In two-player mode, the opponents can share the same computer or alternatively play the game over the network. Moreover, the game has been designed to adapt to different levels of visual disability. King Pong also supports recording and playback of game play activities for offline analysis and evaluation.
