Values @ Play

Values in Design Council

Values at Play investigates how designers can be more intentional about the ways in which they integrate human values into their game-based systems. The team also develops games which integrate values and tools for other designers and learners. The Values at Play research project seeks to assist and encourage designers in creating games that further the understanding and appreciation of such values as equality, diversity, and creativity, and how we experience values through play.
