Cognition and Disruption in Gameplay

Project Details

Description

This project is exploring the potential of disrupting and subverting a player's expectations and pre-existing knowledge of games and gameplay, in order to provide a deeper, more cognitively engaging play experience. The project has been developed from a foundation of cognitive psychology coupled with existing models of gameplay, leading to the creation of a new framework of 'Ludic Knowledge' and a new model of 'Ludic Action'.

The project is both theoretical and practical, with research directly informing development of playable products.
