Serious game development

Gamification, applied games and serious games are all terms that you have undoubtedly come across. They mean that games can serve a more serious goal than just entertainment. At Grendel Games we develop serious games that use the entertainment value of games to bring about a positive behavioral change.

The power of serious gaming

The most important feature of serious games is that they bring about behavioral change. This happens through proper motivation or awareness. For example, water company Vitens used the Water Battle to make households aware of their water consumption. Not only was the game seriously entertaining, but it also resulted in water savings of 7%!

Healthcare is also benefiting from the potential of serious games. Underground ensures that surgeons enjoy practicing their motor skills, and Gryphon Rider gets children excited about their rehabilitation exercises.

In all areas where serious games are developed, technologies such as VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality) are often used to increase the effectiveness of the interventions.

Scientifically validated

During the development of serious games, we involve scientists and domain experts to test whether the game really works. In education, Garfield’s Count Me In has been used for children in special primary education. This math game is based on the learning methodology ‘Het Rekenmuurtje’ and was specially designed by educational consultants. Together with them, a game was realized to help children who have difficulty with arithmetic.
