Role of Play – New Games, New Chances. A Future Perspective on Play in Society
|Author||Ben Schouten; Menno Deen|
|Publisher||Jap Sam Books|
‘Role of Play’ offers a refreshing take on modern game design and play. In photos, screenshots, and pictures, a wide variety of examples are presented, from analogue play to video games, puzzle games to urban planning, battling cancer to behavioural change, and digital treasure hunts to designing your home. Change is a sign of our time, and learning how to play with the rules that underpin society and its positive outcomes is essential. The book covers the latest trends in serious games and “playification” for purposes other than pure entertainment. Not just for game and social designers, it is intended for a wider audience that includes policymakers, developers, and students.
