I’m Jon, Ph.D-sudent with an interest mainly in the design of game, play and playful activities and systems. My focus is on how the design affects the engament, feelings and experiences of the game.
My interest in the design of activities, with a game design focus, comes from a broad background. My education began in computer programming and design, from where I moved on towards communication with a pedagogical twist and games as my main tool. I’ve also studied game design in more practically oriented educations. I’ve designed both live action roleplaying games and published board games, both for serious use and for entertainment. I’ve got a great understanding of the practical approach of game design, and believe this will be of good use in my future research.
