Thanks for the responses guys.

I should have mentioned. We're only looking at WCAG 2.0 Level AA conformance at this point in time. Maybe I should have worded the question as: is there any requirements in WCAG 2.0 that will apply to the games apart from valid markup & keyboard control?

Thanks again.
Oscar

Should not file and page names also be made up of words that have capitals
for initial letters of first words of contatenated words?
Thanks,

The Game Accessibility Guidelines are a useful resource. They don't map to
WCAG because they're applicable to digital gaming in general (not just
web-based games), but they provide three tiers of guidance for inclusive
game design/mechanics.
