Making fun, dyslexia-friendly games

 




Welcome to Lowtek Games

Lowtek Games is a new indie run by Alastair Low studio focused on creating games and tools to help dyslexic players enjoy games more.
We create new retro homebrew games for the NES, dreamcast and current platforms.

The Tools

Dislectek is a unity plugin which allows developers to quickly and easily add Dyslexic friendly text to speech options to their game.
For years dyslexic players have been ignored but their struggles are real. It's estimated that as many as 1 in 5 people are dyslexic.
This means that if you have lengthy dialogue, tutorial text, hidden notes or item descriptions 20 % of your potential audience may just
skip that content.

OUT NOW to the Unity asset store for Windows and Mac.

We plan on including Dislectek in our future games built in Unity to showcase the tool.

Prototypes And Other Projects

PEAKS board game

Peaks is a board game of skill and luck for 2 players where the objective is to match black and white sides of triangles
before the other player. However only 2 of the triangles sides are visible at any one time leaving an air of mystery
to other side. Players take turns to roll a dice which gives them an amount of points to spend per turn.
A list of moves for varying costs are used during the players turn, moves include; turning, swapping, stealing triangles etc.
