A new student-designed video game helps young adults with special needs practice shopping in a virtual environment modeled after a local grocery store. Players select a meal they'd like and must find all the ingredients on the virtual shelves. "The most difficult -- and most rewarding -- part of the game development process was creating something that was accessible to a large group of people who had varying abilities," said co-designer Zach Barth. "We achieved something educational that was still really fun to play."
