Game designers use a variety of techniques that mislead players with the goal of inducing play experience. For example , designers may manipulate data displays of player health-showing they have less health than they actually do-to induce tension. While commonly used, players make decisions based on in-game data displays, raising the question of ho...

... No que diz respeito ao design projetado de maneira participativa e com a colaboração de diferentes partes interessadas, Ville e Paavilainen [40] propõem 17 diretrizes para jogos de tabuleiro híbridos (que combinam elementos não digitais e digitais com o intuito de apresentar um novo tipo de experiência de jogo). As diretrizes são o resultado de um processo iterativo de workshopping com especialistas da indústria e pesquisadores acadêmicos, apoiados por entrevistas com desenvolvedores e pesquisa do jogador. ...

A natureza dos jogos sérios, especialmente aqueles de caráter empático, requer uma abordagem sociotécnica para seu design e desenvolvimento. Nesse sentido, é importante que existam estudos e artefatos úteis para o design de soluções computacionais. Este artigo apresenta um conjunto de quatorze diretrizes para o design de jogos empáticos. As diretrizes foram concebidas a partir de estudos na literatura de jogos, bem como por meio da experiência de designes do grupo de pesquisa e de jogadores que interagiram com cinco dos jogos empáticos aqui considerados. Os comentários desses jogadores sobre tais jogos foram extraídos da plataforma Steam e trazem tendências relacionadas à jogabilidade, narrativa, gráficos, cores e trilha sonora dos jogos e enriqueceram o conjunto de diretrizes.

Tic-Tac-Toe и Шах. В някои игри с открити условия, изкуствените невронни мрежи са идеален кандидат за компютърни опоненти. Процесът на обучение за изкуствени невронни мрежи може да отнеме време и ресурси. Това прави процеса на обучение много подходящ за разпределени изчисления. Това изследване предлага използването на фонова услуга в Android за обучение на изкуствени невронни мрежи с диференциална еволюция за играта Dice Overflow, като мобилна система за разпределени изчисления.

Despite increasing interest in the use of digital tools in boardgames for both commercial and research purposes, little research has to date explored how and why these tools are used. We interviewed 18 professionals working in the boardgame industry to explore the combination of digital tools and tabletop play, which affords new experiences and opportunities for both players and designers. We generated five key themes from the interview data. Participants engaged with ontological questions about the fundamental nature of games; they showed strong opinions about the use of digital tools; they discussed the impacts of digital tools for game design as well as in their design practice; they raised concerns about the costs to develop and maintain such tools; and they considered how they affect the in-game player experience. From these themes, we generate five design principles for digital tools for boardgame play: traceability, completeness, integration, privacy, and materiality. Grounded in empirical data, these design principles guide game designers and researchers seeking to explore this novel design space. Our research focuses attention on the role of digital components in play and on the need for thoughtful implementation that considers the entire lifecycle of the game, from development through publication and, ultimately, archival access.
