Profile

Marries van de Hoef is a PhD Candidate within the Graduate Programme Game Research, which is part of the Utrecht Center for Game Research. His research topic is "Game appeal: understanding the variety of reasons why videogames are appealing". The interdisciplinary project is primarily located within both Computer Science and the Humanities, which is reflected in the promotors prof. dr. Remco Veltkamp and prof. dr. Joost Raessens.

In the first part of his PhD project, Marries is identifying and connecting the various perspectives used in the existing research on the variety of reasons why videogames are appealing. These different perspectives on the same topic are spread over many disciplines. By connecting these perspectives, knowledge on this topic can be exchanged more easily between the disciplines, which is now done only rarily. Subsequently, a start for knowledge exchange is made by creating a general meta-synthesis of the existing research. In the second part of the PhD project, the assembled knowledge of the first part will be applied. This will be done for example by improving the isolation when studying specific appealing factors, and by formulating a game design methodology focused on the variety of appealing factors.

Before his PhD research proposal was selected in the Graduate Programme Game Reseach, Marries has been awarded with the Science Faculty's thesis prize of 2014 and nominated as one of three nominees for the general Utrecht University thesis prize of 2014. Marries has designed and lectured the Advanced Graphics course in the Game and Media Technology Master's programme, and the Game Design course in the Game Technology Bachelor curriculum.
