  3. 3. Activity • Think of a game in which two players are competing against each other. The game must include a ball but it is not allowed to kick or throw it. Prove that the activity is really a game by pointing out the main characteristics of every game. – Gameplay (how do we play it) – Main goal / other goals – Rules – Why is this activity challenging? – "State of flow" – Risk / Reward 3

  6. 6. • Our goal is to "blend" learning goals into game activities -> student is enjoying the game and doesn't even realize that she is learning complex concepts • Designing a game: – Story is very important! – Virtual, fantasy world – Main character, NPC's 6
  7. 7. Activity • Think of a game from your field of interest. Pick one learning goal and map it with ingame activity. • Also define: – Target audiance – Story – Main character 7

  14. 14. • NPC – non-player characters – Any character that is not controlled by player – Same animations as for main character • Game items – Actions (examine, grab, use, use with, drag to) 14
