DAGERSystem acquires Can I Play That

Accessibility non-profit purchases website "to become the largest resource for game-accessibility journalism in the world"

DAGERSystem today announced that it is acquiring Can I Play That, and that it has committed to maintaining the game accessibility website as a distinct entity and its employment and education arm.

DAGERSystem will also soon migrate its accessibility games journalism content to Can I Play That, and overhaul its own website to be a hub pointing people to its various accessibility-driven initiatives and programs, Can I Play That included.

"We believe that this acquisition will not only benefit Can I Play That by allowing it to maintain its status within the community and its reputation for excellence, but it will also help DAGERSystem," said DAGERSystem founder Josh Straub.

"We will have the benefit of Can I Play That's broad readership and well-respected brand within the game accessibility movement, while we raise funds to support the Accessible Games Database and work every day to make gaming more accessible for players with disabilities."
