Kyushu University has conducted the Serious Game Project under the scheme of university-industry-government collaboration since last year.
As a long term prospect, we aim to accumulate the know-how on the development of serious games through this project and also to enlarge the game industry in the foreseeable future.
In this session, we introduce you the games we developed last year themed “environment problem” and discuss the potentiality for serious game itself while unveiling some problems we’ve facing.
We also focus on serious games on the theme of “health-care” and “tourism” we’re working on this year to make it more practical for industrialization.
