Deafverse

Created by the National Deaf Center, Deafverse "is a choose-your-own adventure game," designed to provide deaf teenagers with ideas and tools to help them navigate obstacles they may face in real life. In the game, players are introduced to Catbot (a robot) and several other characters that will be their companions throughout their journey. Players then walk through scenarios where they are tasked with problems and choices intended to build self-advocacy and decision-making skills. All content is available in American Sign Language, English closed-captions, and English audio, and accessibility settings can be adjusted by clicking the "Settings" button in the top right corner. Players will need to create a free account to access the game. In addition to the game itself, users may want to browse the Resources section, which features Player and Teacher Strategy Guides available for free download (including accessible versions). These guides expand on the work of the game and include discussion prompts and activities. The Resources page also features an Accessibility Guide and additional tools for educators. All of the game's content was created by a team of deaf individuals from the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes, "a national research center committed to helping deaf Americans succeed after high school." Readers can learn more about the team and their work on the Meet the Team page.
