Main Digest

Gaming should be able to be played by everyone, One Button Games provides an assortment of games that can be played by users with learning or physical difficulties.

Back in the early 1980's Ben received a Sinclair Spectrum 48K computer for Christmas. He was in awe - his brother and he had their own computer. The games were amazing, so many different genres to choose from. He soon got more interested in finding out how the games were made than playing them.

The Spectrum had a programming language known as BASIC (Beginner's All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code). Although limited in the functions and keywords, it was possible to make amazing things happen on such a small and compact system. Within a few months Ben was making things move on screen, making my own graphics and music, and increasing his skills and understanding of the programming language. His interest in game creation has not waned since then.

As he got older he learnt additional programming languages, and dabbled in making software and games, with some success. In the early 2000's he discovered an awesome piece of software know as GameMaker. It allowed for the creation of games with minimal programming language skills. He set about to learn it inside and out, to the level that he was able to author a book on how to use it to make games. Since then the software has gone through many upgrades and name changes, turning into what is now a very powerful game creation tool.

Over the years Ben had many jobs, including teaching, and working with people who have physical and learning disabilities. He believes that everyone should be able to enjoy gaming, so he recently launched One Button Games. This will allow him to make games that can played with a single input device - whether that be a single key-press, mouse button, foot mouse or pedal, or any other input device.
