The Institute of Digital Games (IDG) will be showcasing game design and research at their stand during Science and the City on the Friday, 28th September 2018 starting 18h00 in Valletta near Pjazza Regina and under the arches (Digital area).

Video Game Design Showcase

At our stand the public will have the opportunity to try out MAZING a game designed by PhD student David Melhart that he is using in his research to model frustration in agents. If you want we can track your scores and post the highest at the end of the night.

Learn about eCrisis, the IDG’s project on using games to foster social inclusion in school children and see the games they use for the project: Iconoscope and Village Voices. Village Voices even won best Learning Game in the Serious Game Awards in 2013. It’s a networked game though, so unfortunately we won’t be able to showcase that.

Ask about Auto Semantic Game, a research project by Dr Owen Sacco with the aim of using semantic data available online to create game objects.
