Betrayal at Club Low is a peculiar narrative adventure game where you attempt to sneak into a nightclub disguised as a pizza delivery man to get your colleague out. You make pizza, create dice that determine how talks with the clubbers go and explore the surreal, rhythmic world. It stands out for the strange dreamlike twists the story takes as a result of conversations dictated by the roll of a dice.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Many essential actions, such as upgrading your dice, require you to hold down the button for one second; other holds can be changed to presses in the options menu. At the start of the game, and after you get an ending, you select the difficulty you want to play at. This changes how much money you start with as well as several other factors which can be seen by hovering over the difficulty. The Custom difficulty setting lets you adjust this granularly. There is also an additional modifier which makes everyone you talk to easier to defeat in dice rolls. Harder modifiers can be unlocked by completing the game in certain states.

There is no need for quick reactions, and even "failure" is just a different ending, so there is no way to completely fail and not get an ending.

Text can often be small and is occasionally low in contrast. It can occasionally be unclear where to go next and what to do, and your objectives can be vague and not directly tell you what to do, although by talking to characters and interacting with the environment you rarely get stuck for long.

Being able to distinguish between different colours and shades of the same colour is important, as some UI elements are based on colour, which is important to note for colourblind players. Generally, though, by hovering over something, you can see more detail about it. There is occasional depth-of-field, which cannot be disabled.

Getting StartedGetting Started

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Getting Started in Betrayal at Club Low which deal with what support is offered to get started with the game. This includes customising the experience when you first open the game via any onboarding processes it provides as well as tutorials and other assistance when you first start playing.

Assistance Getting Starting

These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials and instructions on how to play. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate level of detail.

Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.

Low Pressure: Game tasks aren't time-limited or there's a low-pressure mode. This avoids the pressure of being put on the clock for overarching missions, or failing tasks because you didn't reach a destination in time.

Assistance For Progressing

These features aid your progress through the game offering different ways of maintaining your progression.

Guaranteed Progress With God Mode: There is no fail state for any game level, where you lose progress or have to start again. Or there are options to make failing impossible: infinite health or lives, unlimited time. Sometimes called God Mode or Unfailable.

Save Progress Anytime: The game automatically saves progress or you can save any time. This doesn’t mean you never lose progress, but it does mean you can stop whenever you want (without having to get to a save point) without losing progress.

Captions
