My name is Devin and I have a diagnosis called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This disorder affects many people in many different ways. However, it is not uncommon among people with ASD to have psychological adverse reactions to specific colors, most commonly among those is the color red. Now, I want to be clear, it is not anything and everything that is a little bit red that causes this effect; it is mostly only notable when the shade of red is solid and it fills a large portion of my field of view. In situations where it affects me, I feel an uncontrollable sense of panic, like a fight-or-flight response, or a feeling of distress, and I have to look away.
I understand this type of disability makes some people very angry. To those people, I would like to make this clear: I am not angry, I am not complaining, I am not trying to start a fight or take someone down. I am simply trying to make the developers aware of a change that has affected my ability to play a game that I love, and which I believe would be trivial to fix. That is all.
