Investigating player responses to “story exploration" videogames

01 October 2018

The aim of this research is to investigate how players respond to videogames that have a focus on story and narrative.

The study consists of a 20-25 minute supervised playtest of a videogame, followed by a multiple-choice questionnaire and a conversational interview about the experience. No experience with games is required.

With the results, I hope to contribute to the development of similar games in the future, and potentially improve the understanding of what makes videogames engaging.
