Want to have a game developed?

The Start Track will help you get started

Suppose you have a great idea for a serious game. But then? Where do you start? How do you find your way through all the technical concepts? And how do you know for sure that there is support for this solution? As a client, it is exciting to immediately embark on a long-term development process. That is why we offer a separate Start Track. Together with you, the end user, we answer all the important questions and make the idea as tangible as possible.

What does the Start Track look like?

The lead time of our Start-up Programme is on average 6 to 8 weeks. At the end of the process you will have a solid blueprint for your serious game. Is this not the right solution for your challenge? No worries: you are free to build further on the results yourself.

“Tijdens het spelen waren de patiënten zich veel minder bewust van hun klachten, waardoor zij zich vrijer bewogen. Het verleggen van de focus biedt duidelijk mogelijkheden. In dit geval is de naam ‘serious gaming’ dus onjuist, het maakt de oefeningen juist minder serieus; haalt de angel eruit.”

Promovenda Rijksunversiteit Groningen (Campus Fryslân)
