Games and Innovation (GaIn) game research project is launched!

Here is an excerpt from our project plan:

As a part of the Transformations of Digital Play (TDP) consortium GaIn research project studies 1) creativity and innovation in game design practices and 2) game based and playful innovation methods. GaIn focuses on developing systematic and playful approaches to enhance and organize the process of creating new products, especially from the perspective of game design processes.
Understanding creativity as a domain specific phenomenon, the objective for GaIn is to map the domain of game design as an organic practice within specific formal restrictions in order to create methodologies and tools for generating, refining, evaluating and managing game ideas in a systematic manner.
