Redefining the MDA Framework—The Pursuit of a Game Design Ontology

Rogério Junior, Frutuoso Silva
2021 Information  
The main purpose of this paper is to clarify the MDA framework by redefining its main components, mechanics, dynamics and aesthetics, as a way to make the tool more understandable and useful for game designers  ...  It clarifies the closest approach to a unified ontology that there is for the game domain: the mechanics, dynamics and aesthetics framework (MDA).  ...  The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses, or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, or in the decision to publish the results.  ...

The Conceptual Relationship Model: Understanding Patterns and Mechanics in Game Design

Carl Magnus Olsson, Staffan Björk, Steve Dahlskog
2014 Conference of the Digital Games Research Association  
Rooted in the complexity of purposeful design, this paper embraces a phenomenological perspective of design as both a process and artifact.  ...  This paper revisits the concepts of game design patterns and game mechanics, arguing that refactoring these concepts is needed to clarify their relationships and motivations.  ...  The effect of our view on contextualization as locales leads us to a chance to redefine game design patterns and game mechanics, in terms of space and place.  ...
