Abstract [sv]

Den här studien är en empirisk studie genomförd via en enkät online där deltagarnahar fått svara på frågor som rör utforskning och inlevelse i spelet Starbound.Deltagarna fick svara fritt i löpande text hur de upplever att dessa aspekter påverkarderas förmåga för immersion. Dessa svar har vi sen analyserat med tematisk analysför att ta fram teman och kategorier som ger underlag för vår forskning. Vi fann att deredan etablerade kategorierna för immersion kunde utökas då svaren vi fick tydligtindikerade på att utforskning är av stor vikt för spelarnas förmåga att uppnåimmersion i spelet. Utöver utforskningsbaserad immersion fann vi också att tillgångtill flerspelarläge var en återkommande viktig aspekt för spelarnas immersion.

Abstract [en]

This study is an empirical study that was conducted via an online survey where theparticipants have answered questions regarding exploration and immersion in thegame Starbound. The participants answered the questions in their own words abouthow these aspects affected their ability to immerse themselves in the game. Theseanswers were then analyzed using thematic analysis in order for us to establish themesand categories that we used as a foundation for our research. We found that thealready established categories for immersion could be complemented by our findings;the answers from the participants indicated that exploration is of great importance forthe players ability to achieve immersion in the game. In addition to explorativeimmersion, we also found that immersion via multiplayer was a recurring importantaspect for the participants.
