Abstract:OMNI is a reaction game which is fully based on vibrations. That way, it can be played by people with and without visual impairment. When people with different abilities play OMNI together, the question whether that is still fun and fair will arise. Therefore, this research focuses on how to make OMNI as fun and fair as possible for people with and without visual impairment. With the use of researching related games, literature, survey, expert interviews, user interviews, designing prototypes and testing with the target group, this research provides insight into how fun and fair game play can be measured and evaluated for OMNI. These insights were given by game designers, people who work with visually impaired, people who design games for the visually impaired, friends and family of someone who is visually impaired and last but certainly not least, the visually impaired themselves. With these insights, this research has shown that there is fairness in the unfairness. The game should be designed around that concept by balancing the abilities of people instead of tackling their disabilities.
