[Nei16] Game Design Tools : Can They Improve Game Design Practice?

Mémoire de Thèse :

Auteurs: K. Neil

Résumé: This thesis contributes practice-led evaluation research to the question of whether game design tools can effectively support and expand game design practice. It offers insights that can be used to inform future game design tool development. Game designers, unlike most other design practitioners, typically do not use design tools in their work. While conceptual models and software tools have been developed to address this, we lack discussion and critique of how tools work in practice. Taking the point of view of a practitioner, this study of game design tools is based on longitudinal, practice-led evaluation research conducted as a participant-observer, applying game design tools to 5 contrasting game design case studies.
