WorthPlay: Final Reports Available!

The final reports of the research conducted throughout the WorthPlay project are freely available. The reports, one for each partner (GTI-UPF, IIIA-CSIC, DMAG-UoD), and written in Spanish, summarize the work done over two years, which has been a mix of ethnography, participatory design, accessibility, game design and development, artificial intelligence, adaptive games and cultural analysis. We hope you enjoy reading them!

  • Final Report GTI-UPF. This report gives an overview of the ethnographical research conducted in Àgora. This report also describes two iterations of participatory design and gives an account of an extended evaluation of the platform developed in the project in different situations of play. The report also presents the technical details of the platform, which enables older people and members of their social circles to both play and create digital games.
  • Final Report IIIA-CSIC. This report describes the design and development of SAGE, an intelligent game-based adaptation system. SAGE recommends activities to the players based on their playing behaviour. SAGE has been successfully integrated into the WorthPlay platform. This report also gives an overview of previous research on artificial intelligence in digital games, and adaptive games.
  • Final Report DMAG-UoD. This report presents cross-cultural experiences of digital game play by older people in Dundee (Scotland). The report summarises the results of sixteen contextual inquiries, a 2-month participant observation study, and an activity of game play and design, all of which carried out in the Dundee User Centre. The report also presents a literature review of game accessibility guidelines.
