2  Meaningful Play Task engagement of the player during play  Development Pipeline Interactions between Design & Dev’ Teams  Instructional Designer A new role in the pipeline  Web Site Tool to facilitate Team micro-decisions

3  Serious Game Any game that offers more than fun as its outcome for the player  Meaningful Play The execution of appropriate tasks by a player to solve stated problems within the game  Example: “The Swing”

4  A Game:  Usually Algorythmic (Rule-Based) with Play focusing on Content Manipulation  A Simulation:  Usually Modeling of External Content with Play focusing on Decision-Making

5  Multiple Disciplines Differing Points-of-view  No Precedent All companies work differently  No Common Strategies Specific decisions are not shared  Bridging the Gap Defining the pipeline at a micro level

6  Game Design  Creative Designer  Instructional Designer  Project Manager  Programming  System Architecture  Functional Programming  Art  O bject/NPC Modeling  World Building  Audio  Interaction Sound (SFX)  Narrative (Speech)  Music

7  The Role of the Instructional Designer Defining the instructional objectives The Player: Entry Level is 8 th – 9 th grade Content: Algebra, Trigonometry, & Basic Physics. Motivation is moderate for Math, but high for Physics. The Learning Objectives: Within the game/sim the player will encounter problems, and successfully demonstrate ability to Identify trigonometry formulas dealing with sides and angles of a triangle, plus be able to recognize contextual variables that must be measured and/or manipulated to solve specific problems, Etc… The Context for the learning must be situated in authentic contexts where physics problems are encountered. The perception of the player must be that s/he is among a group of peers, each with something to contribute to the problem, etc …

8  The Role of the the Creative Designer Defining the Form and Functionality of the Play Environment  Demands a great deal of INTRA & INTER Collaboration Aesthetics Continuity Pacing Player Experience

9 INFO ElementsINTERACTIONSSTORY o DATE o LOCATION (and maybe in a Google Earth fashion) o IMAGE/AUDIO of LEONARDO as he mutters to himself about the concept he is wrestling with o PRINCIPLE ANALYZER gives readout of key concepts of math, physics, and tools they need to take with them to assist. o Manipulation of the HISTORY SCANNER o Comments to each other through NPC dialog o Manipulation of PRINCIPLE ANALYZER The Incredible Kids are hanging out in their special lab-lounge and a signal is broadcast to them from their HISTORY SCANNER. They run over to this to find out where the need is this time to “help history” continue on its projected path. This time the signal is coming from the 16 th century and specifically from Leonardo DaVinci’s Lab in Italy. The scanner has picked up a “Concentration Center” where Leonardo is working on a concept of gravity, but seems to be having problems. THIS IS THE TIME FOR THE iKIDS TO BEAM THEMSELVES THERE TO HELP. o Costumes of each of our iKIDS automatically change period. o PC must locate and begin interaction with LEONARDO The iKIDS are transported in, of course a very neat fashion to Italy, and specifically into Leonardo’s Lab
