Game Research

Utrecht Center for Game Research

Games play an increasingly important role in many societal areas by allowing users to practice, play, experiment, research, and learn in a safe and motivating environment.

The Utrecht Center for Game Research gathers all game research expertise at Utrecht University related to games, gaming practices and culture, gamification, and various other forms of playful interaction such as simulations and apps. By bringing together researchers from different areas, it reinforces and expands the scope, quality, volume, and impact of game research at Utrecht University.
