Future Play and GIIP: new research projects

Some news: our team has been awarded with funding from Tekes Verso programme to two new games research projects. The other one is GIIP (Games Industry Innovation Processes), which aims to survey and strengthen the state of innovation processes in Finnish games industry. This project is part of the TDP (Transformation of Digital Play) research consortium, and continues the work carried out in GaIn and GameSpace projects earlier. The other one is called Future Play and it will look into the future of game design, play and technology through expert interviews and analyses. Particularly it will pay attention to the digital distribution and publication models as well as to the games becoming embedded and integrated with online social media, thus continuing the work carried out in Games as Services project particularly. For more information, please contact the project managers: Annakaisa Kultima (GIIP) and Olli Sotamaa (Future Play).
