Abstract

Globally, healthcare systems are challenged by ageing populations, growing costs, and poorly designed policies. To promote discussion on these issues, the Danish Design Center created four physical scenarios to show what the healthcare system may look like anno 2050. Following an existing game development process, this project translated the physical scenarios to a virtual format to reach a larger audience. While developing the final prototype, we created five principles to dictate the best implementation of game design techniques. The final video game prototype acted as a proof of concept, on which the Danish Design Center may determine the effectiveness of creating virtual scenarios.
