This project centers around what we refer to as “ultra casual” games with the goal of discovering more efficient ways to develop engaging casual video games. The industry partner Victory Square Games has partnered with Microsoft to develop 20 games for the Windows tablet to further expand their Windows 8 app library. The associated internship project seeks to advance the state of game design through the formation and application of new theories for greater user engagement and cognitive analysis, and adapt into an agile game development methodology.
