Play!UC at Hybrid City III

A paper titled “Lessons from Game Design – Understanding Participatory Processes through Game Mechanics” was presented by Cristina Ampatzidou at the Hybrid City III conference in Athens at September 17th. The paper argues that urban planners will be able to improve the coherence and overall experience of participatory processes by thinking of participatory tools in terms of separate game mechanics, which when used in balance, create a compelling player/participant experience. In doing so, some of the challenges faced by existing participatory frameworks can be addressed.
