    EVIL SPREADS ACCESSIBLE GAMING A LITTLE FURTHER
    Evil Controllers donates an accessible controller to the AbleGamers' 2012 Children's Grant Program

    Tempe, AZ. (August 2012) - Earlier this month, the AbleGamers Foundation announced their AbleGamers 2012 Children's Grant Program. The program will award children 15 years or younger a onetime grant for the use of gaming equipment. Evil Controllers is proud to announce that they will be donating one accessible controller to the grant program.

    Evil Controllers is the industry leader of custom controllers and accessible controllers with over six accessible controllers available from their online stores. These controllers assist gamers with limited mobility by allowing them to play games more comfortably and to play games that they otherwise would have been unable to play. "Our mission is to bring accessibility to everyone who wants to game," said Mark Barlet, President and Founder of the AbleGamers Foundation. "Evil Controllers continues to be an amazing partner in the accessible gaming movement. Together, we have enabled hundreds of disabled gamers with the Adroit controller and custom-built controllers. This donation to the AbleGamers' Children's Grant program is just one example of the good that can come from Evil."

    Evil Controllers receives hundreds of custom requests every week and works closely with each inquiry to make an accessible controller that is tailored specifically for the gamer making the request. By donating an accessible controller to The AbleGamers Foundation, Evil Controllers expects to work closely with one of the awarded grant winners to make them a controller that feels 'just right'. "We have been doing custom controllers for over 5 years and have yet to find a mobility issue that we can't find a solution for."

    The Ablegamers Foundation has begun taking applicants and will continue to do so throughout the month of August. Applications must be filled out and submitted no later than August 31st.

    Evil Controllers and The AbleGamers Foundation

    If you aren't familiar with the AbleGamers foundation, you should be. The AbleGamers foundation strives to bring accessibility to all gamers. This is a goal that Adam Coe, president of Evil Controllers, shares with them. Together with the AbleGamers foundation, Evil Controllers can help make controllers that are more accessible to gamers with limited mobility.

    The AbleGamers work hard to increase the accessibility to all games; they reach out to game developers and game insiders to make large industry changes. Oftentimes simple solutions can make a game that would normally be largely inaccessible to a large audience, fully accessible. One of these changes for example is the simple option to be able to remap button functions within the game. For example: to allow the default Y button function to be activated with the use of the B button. Unfortunately, many easily plausible solutions are ignored because disabled gamers aren't thought of frequently enough within game development.
    This is why Evil Controllers worked closely with the AbleGamers Foundation to create an accessible controller that can allow users to remap any button function to any 3.5 mm switch. This controller is the Adroit 'Switch Blade' and is currently available on our site with 3 save-able player profiles. The Adroit allows players to create their own gaming configurations to play games in ways that are most comfortable to them. The Adroit 'Switch Blade' can adapt to just about any player.

    EVIL CONTROLLERS AND THE ABLEGAMERS FOUNDATION BRING ACCESSIBILITY BACK TO GAMING

    The Adroit SwitchBlade is now available for purchase at Evil Controllers dot com

    Tempe, AZ. (September 2011) - Evil Controllers and the AbleGamers Foundation have collaborated to create the Adroit Switchblade. The Adroit was revealed at PAX Prime during the PAX panel Gamers Doing Good. The Adroit Controller is a gaming controller to help alleviate the difficulties that gamers with limited mobility may encounter when playing their favorite video games.

    Evil Controllers has always focused on helping gamers play games in their favorite way, whether it be gameplay mods like rapid fire or with cosmetic mods such as colored thumbsticks, bumpers, triggers or Evils professional line of Evil Sticks. Evil Controllers and the AbleGamers Foundation have been developing controllers for accessible gaming for over 2 years and they have one objective in mind: bringing a comfortable gaming experience to gamers that may otherwise be unable to play.

    The Adroit Switchblade is Evil Controllers newest creation. The Adroit SwitchBlade allows gamers to remap any button, triggers, and thumb sticks from the Xbox 360 controller to a 3.5 mm switch of their choice, in doing so gamers can place functions from their controller to a switch thats easier for them to use. The switches used on the Adroit Switchblade can be buttons that are more suited for a specific gamers range of motion. For example the switches may be connected to buttons that are more sensitive to touch or replaced with switches that are instead activated by a players breath rather than physical touch.

    The Adroit SwitchBlade includes the option to create up to 3 custom profiles that can be saved, switched, and perfected for varying games and genres. In addition, gamers can program multiple button presses on to a single switch, use a switch to toggle functions on/off (sticky), remap controller buttons to perform multiple in game functions, and program switches for turbo button presses

    What makes this controller so revolutionary is that we havent ignored any aspect of the experience. Adam Coe, President and founder of Evil Controllers. On a regular basis custom controllers lose features that are found on ordinary controllers as a result of cutting costs or to simplify the controllers design. With the Adroit SwitchBlade, every facet of the controller can be used depending on the users personal preference and mobility. This includes the rumble motors found on Xbox 360 controllers that can be attached or detached depending on how visceral the gamer may want their experience.

    The Adroit SwitchBlade Controller puts options back into the hands of millions of gamers or would be gamers and provides them the option to play video games once more. The SwitchBlade can be found at evilcontrollers.com for $399.99. "The SwitchBlade is the cutting edge of accessible gaming, the folks at Evil Controllers did a superior job at understanding the needs of our community." said Mark Barlet, President of the AbleGamers Foundation, "With the bar set so high, I can't wait to see what we come up with next."
