The Centre fosters collaboration between creative practitioners and applied studies addressing real world problems.
The Centre for Game Design Research is an interdisciplinary centre for research and the creation of games and playful design interventions based in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University in Australia. The Centre brings together scholars, artists, designers, engineers and students across Schools and Research Centres at RMIT as well as participants from other Universities and Industry.
We design, analyse and critique electronic games and playful activities, to grow our knowledge and appreciation of electronic games and play in modern culture. We also investigate how problems can be solved through the design of new gameful experiences and test these with participants.
It is the directive of the Centre to:
- Initiate and support collaborative research/development of projects in digital game studies and design;
- Build bridges and establish partnerships with games related industries, independent game developers and international researchers and artists;
- Actively explore and develop viable models of interdisciplinary research collaboration.
