Abstract

While the context within which engineering design is conducted undoubtedly differs from that of game design, both are design activities similar to each other. By adopting a formal approach to, this paper aims to connect both practices in a stimulating manner and, through interviews and a game design case study, take a critical look at the practice of game design and development to distilling lessons that could be beneficial to engineering design.
