Enjoyable Game Design: Validation of Motor-Impaired User GameFlow Model

Nurul Hidayah Mat Zain, Azizah Jaafar, and Fariza Hanis Abdul Razak
Abstract—The availability of a scale that effectively measures enjoyable design specifically for motor-impaired users (MIU) can support the game designer to understand the experience from the extraordinary user’s perspective. The MIU-GameFlow Model in this study involves seven elements: concentration, challenge, player control, clear goal, feedback, immersion, and flexibility. In this study, we focused on validation of the MIU-GameFlow Model. The validation of the MIU-GameFlow Model was carried out by conducting expert reviews of two accessible games (one high-rating game and one low-rating game) using the MIU-GameFlow Model criteria. The result was an understanding of enjoyable game design in accessible games and the testing of the MIU-GameFlow Model as an evaluation tool. The MIU-GameFlow Model criteria were capable of differentiating the high-rated and low-rated games. We concluded that the MIU-GameFlow Model can be used in evaluating enjoyable game designs for MIU.

Index Terms—Motor impaired users, enjoyable design, game design, computer games.
