Autilius Joint Attention is well-suited for children with autism spectrum disorders. We considered their special needs while creating our games in order to minimalise distractors.

Graphics and animations

We want our games to be a safe space for children who are otherwise easily distracted by sounds in the environment. The player`s possible hypersensitivity to sensory stimulation has also been taken into consideration, with all the melodies and sound effects carefully pre-selected to be quiet and subtle.
