Abstract [en]

In this study we pose the question if you through finding patterns in implementation of checkpoints can find ways to tailor the experience of the game A Story About My Uncle to hardcore gamers. To find out the answer we had hardcore players playing a modified level from the game A Story About My Uncle that was used as stimulus material for the following focus group interview. The analysis of the gathered material resulted in four patterns that can be used when implementing checkpoints to tailor the experience of the game A Story About My Uncle to hardcore gamers. Elements of checkpoints that our study showed to be important when it comes to how the game is experienced are density, placement and clearness.

Abstract [sv]

I den här studien ställde vi oss frågan om man genom att hitta mönster inom implementation av checkpoints kunde finna sätt att anpassa spelupplevelsen i spelet A Story About My Uncle till hardcore spelare. För att ta reda på det lät vi hardcorespelare spela en modifierad bana ur spelet A Story About My Uncle som användes som stimulusmaterial för en följande fokusgruppsintervju. Analysen av det insamlade materialet resulterade i fyra mönster som kan användas vid implementering av checkpoints för att anpassa spelupplevelsen i spelet A Story About My Uncle till hardcorespelare. Faktorer för checkpoints som i vår studie visat sig ha stor betydelse i hur spelet upplevs är densitet, placering och tydlighet.
