Communicating With No Barriers


Did you ever wonder what it's like being a deaf player playing KingsIsle games? Kelsey Fireheart, creator of Stars of the Spiral, accepted KingsIsle's opportunity to write a short article about it and I think we can all learn something from her inspiring life experience.

Here's a fraction of what Kelsey had to share:
"I remember questing in the Pyramid of the Sun of Krokotopia and I bumped into a fellow wizard named Diana Wildheart. We chatted as we helped each other through the battles. She mentioned that she was deaf and I gasped in astonishment. I replied, I am deaf too! That’s when I realized that I could meet fellow deaf gamers through games like Wizard101. That made me decide to continue my subscription to Wizard101. I loved the idea of being able to be able to meet new friends in-game that you could connect with.
This game is a wonderful educational tool that I can use to teach countless others and it gave me a way of communicating with no barriers. In fact, it gave me a greater purpose within the game!"
