I cannot express how excited I was to play this game. It looked like Phasmophobia met House Flipper. I was so incredibly disappointed when I saw that this game is not accessible at all.
I looked in settings before I started playing. There are no options for accessibility. You can’t even change keybinds, which is a major accessibility issue. To be quite frank, that’s unacceptable.
Most of the controls are on the mouse; however, if you can’t press left shift to run, you will die over and over again, like I did. It gets frustrating really fast. The only way to escape the ghost when it’s chasing you is to run. You can’t outwalk it.
The most basic accessibility feature is being able to change keybinds. It’s the bare minimum, and Hellcoming couldn’t even offer that. Hell, it’s an industry standard. If I could change the controls, I could play this game. Plain and simple.
All games, no matter what, should offer the ability to change controls. That’s the bare minimum in accessibility. There are also no vision options, no hard of hearing options, certainly no options for limited mobility.
If you’re disabled, I recommend you pass on Hellcoming.
