EKSA: Game Of The Week: Episode 5
The goal of this project is to explore how social interaction can be made more meaningful for players of social network games. Given the challenges of Facebook's technical constraints and the norms there for asynchronous play, Eksa is intended to give players a way to create content and share it with friends in an environment that encourages both friendly interaction as well as lighthearted competition. The game will gather data on players to see how much and with whom players play, how often they create and share mazes, and how far mazes travel between friends. The research question that began this project, and for which data will be gathered, is: how can a social game provide more meaningful social interactions for its players?
