Playing for real

Elizabeth Bonsignore, Derek Hansen, Kari Kraus, Amanda Visconti, June Ahn, Allison Druin
2013 Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Interaction Design and Children - IDC '13  
ARGs are participatory experiences, because players have a central role in reconstructing the storyline. Furthermore, players interact with the game as themselves, not via avatars.  ...  Few studies have explored the design process of education-based ARGs for children. In this paper, we detail the design and implementation of an ARG for middle school students (13-15 years old).  ...  As noted by a librarian who worked with teens to design ARGs to support summer reading programs, "Internet safety and not misrepresenting yourself…is a very big concern for this age group" (H.  ...

Games for Change: Looking at Models of Persuasion Through the Lens of Design [chapter]

Alissa N. Antle, Theresa Tanenbaum, Anna Macaranas, John Robinson
2014 Gaming Media and Social Effects  
In this chapter, we describe our methodology, present six categories of design markers, and describe the specific strategies for each marker associated with each of the three models of persuasion.  ...  We conclude with proposed guidelines for game design of Games for Change.  ...  In part this is because our unit of analysis is the entire game, not a small component, so design strategies work together.  ...
