  4. 4. Some research projects… • Online-Gym project • Online-Gym is an exploratory project prototyping an online 3D platform based on virtual worlds that allows users to interact with the system through the use of a motion capture device such as Microsoft Kinect
  5. 5. Some research projects… • InMerse project • The goal of the InMERSE is to help understand the potential of using natural interaction, augmented reality and virtual reality techniques and devices in immersive entertainment and professional scenarios.

  9. 9. Some history
  10. 10. Old games • Dice, 3000 AC • Senet, 3000 AC • Liubo, 1500 AC • Mancala, 1400 AC
  11. 11. Old Games (conclusions) • Games have always had a serious purpose • Fortune Telling • Religious Divination for Weather, Politics, Disease • Accounting for crops, animals, and trade • Battle Planning • Gambling • Game mechanisms began to emerge 5000 years ago • Random number generator, playing board, rules, strategies • “Serious” is from the perspective of the society • Fortune Telling and Divination in 3000BC are equivalent to the use of mathematics and science in 2000AD to understand a complex universe and to make intelligent decisions Smith, Roger (2009)
  12. 12. Serious games [1938] • Huizinga (1938), the work Homo Ludens, recognize the game as something innate to man and even animals, considering it an absolutely primary category of life, just prior to culture, and this evolved into the game. source: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_Ludens
  13. 13. Serious games [1970] • “We are concerned with serious games in the sense that these games have an explicit and carefully thought-out educational purpose and are not intended to be played primarily for amusement.” Abt, C. (1970). Serious Games. New York: The Viking Press.
  14. 14. Serious games [2005] • Game: “a physical or mental contest, played according to specific rules, with the goal of amusing or rewarding the participant.” • Video Game: “a mental contest, played with a computer according to certain rules for amusement, recreation, or winning a stake.” • Serious Game: “a mental contest, played with a computer in accordance with specific rules that uses entertainment to further government or corporate training, education, health, public policy, and strategic communication objectives.” Zyda, M. (September 2005). “From visual simulation to virtual reality to games”. IEEE Computer.
  15. 15. Main types • Advergames • Education and Learning • Simulators • Persuasive Games • Organizational-dynamic games • Games for Health
  16. 16. Advergames
  17. 17. Education and Learning

  19. 19. Persuasive Games
  20. 20. Organizational-dynamic games
  21. 21. Games for health
  22. 22. Mainstream “serious games”
  23. 23. Conclusions • Serious games are not only for education and training • Serious game can be fun, or sad, or anything like that. The point is that if not "engaging" (surrounding) is not a good game. • All games are serious, it depends on how we use it.
