Description

Sprint 5

For this sprint our main goal was to fine-tune our game mechanics, elements, rules, and it’s ways of interaction by testing, in order to make the game tangible and close to a phase where it can be implemented in the Sound and Vision space. We have, then, tested two forms of interaction in the game on users, one where we have interactive devices and another one with an interactive table, so to realise which form works best for users and which form still creates a conversation.
Another value was the form of the game, rectangular or circular , while searching for the right one we also tested with visitors, employees and colleague’s , coming to the result that circular works and appeals the best. Furthermore, we investigate on the game different sizes for the testers and the right duration for the gameplay.

A first idea was to test how the storyline with houses from famous Dutch tv shows appeals to our testers, so we continued testing with footage and pictures, created a ranking and choose the right houses to put in the game. After meetings with Sound and Vision and MediaLAB colleagues, we changed our strategy for the board to the old-fashioned Dutch Geese board game

Then, we managed to create a customer journey map of our customers journey through our game, so to grasp the added value and meaning of our game to users, so there would be still a dilemma at the end to create a conversation by either incentive or highscore board.

Thinking the aesthetics of our game, we thought of testing with multi touch table and the devices, also made some rough scheches of the ideal space and how we would like our installation to be presented.
