Gerontoludic Design

Category: Research

Gerontoludic DesignGerontoludic Design is a formal design framework aimed at older adults. It combines best practices from a wide range of fields, including but not limited to game design, gamification, positive design, communication science, mediapsychology, motivational psychology, design research, positive psychology, and human-technology interaction. Within a player-centered approach, the framework identifies specific game mechanics and aesthetic outcomes for a heterogeneous older audience.

The dissemination of the framework is currently a work in progress. Feel free to contact me for more information about it (or any of my other projects concerning games and older adults).
