Case Study: Microsoft Changing the Game
The video game industry has long ignored players with limited mobility. For most, gaming was impossible. With the Adaptive Controller, which leveled the playing field for gamers with limited mobility, Microsoft had developed a device that manifested the company’s core commitment to empowerment. The brand then needed a campaign centered on the device that could speak to everyone, including Microsoft employees, and not just users of the device, around how and why inclusivity empowers everyone. In doing so, Microsoft sought to not only raise mass awareness around the need for and importance of inclusive design, but also intended to spotlight this issue and move the gaming industry to a more inclusive place. To accomplish this, Microsoft wanted to capture the authentic reactions and stories of the gaming and accessibility community, triggered by the brand’s ad, to lend their voices to this important cause.
