The thesis leads up to three concepts, or design tools, that will be presented. They address 1) a structure for understanding a design from construct, through activity, to experience; 2) an approach to designing invitations to play; and 3) a structure for how to design when players do not engage in the way intended.

Jon Back is a play and games designer, and design-oriented researcher, with a focus on how to create engagement, feelings and experiences in public settings. He’s been working mainly in expanded game formats where the game reaches out of the computer and into the everyday world. He is highly inspired not only by classic game design, but also by areas such as live action role-play, child’s play, storytelling, and street performance.  

He presents his thoughts on the blog www.lets-play.se
