I finally got on to playing Minecraft on my Xbox this year, thanks to the Xbox Adaptive Controller, but I played years before on my iPad. I watched the conference this year on YouTube, taking part in all the polls on Twitter _ and one of my favourite highlights was how you said about being able to customise your skins after your appearance in the Beta _ including withered arms and legs. However, I was disappointed when the Beta was launched and I updated, just to find out that there were only options for withered arms and legs, but not for a wheelchair. To introduce myself further, my name is [personal info removed], and I am paralysed from the neck down and getting into Technology Journalism. I understand it may not be possible for a Minecraft skin to place blocks down with their mouth (which is how I operate all technology), but as someone who looks at technology and gaming through how accessible it is for people who can't use them the same as everyone else, I would at least like a wheelchair skin to show that I am not embarrassed by my disability. Overall, I would say Minecraft is one of the most accessible games I've played, but I do have one question: one of the messages you gave in the conference was how you want to show gamers how to get more involved in the real world, so why can't you show them how to interact with disabled players?
