    Tablet App: https://goo.gl/It3n6b
    The “Guest Journey Game” tablet app is a digital board game. This game is part of a design method called “from Guest Journey to Guest satisfaction” and is specifically designed to have discussions about how the activities are facilitated in a building. The users (designteam) will eventually decide which activities need attention and define the “designbrief”. This application is to be used in conjunction with the telephone app.

    Phone App: https://goo.gl/EpyOR1
    The “Guest Journey Game” app was created in cooperation with NHTV, the academy of facility management, specifically to facilitate the users of a building whilst mapping out their guest journey. This game is part of a design method called “from quest journey to quest satisfaction”. This method grounds investments/actions to increase guest satisfaction. The apps makes it possible to take photos and add descriptions to them in an organized way. This application is to be used in conjunction with the tablet app

    By making pictures and uploading them to the server, users contribute to building a realistic picture of the building they utilize every day. All the pictures and comments are used by (facility)managers to determine which improvements are needed. Users are able to start a “Guest Journey”, pause it and resume later. Users are able to send in multiple “Guest Journeys” from one phone.

    NL: De business readiness game van Liander heeft als doel te beoordelen of de Liander organisatie gereed is voor een grote operatie in de komende jaren. Door middel van een simulatie game in combinatie met een workshop worden alle bedrijfsprocessen gesimuleerd. In de game vinden onverwachte events plaats (die ook in werkelijkheid plaats kunnen vinden) en moeten de spelers in overleg met elkaar de juiste acties nemen die weer in de game verwerkt worden.

    EN:The business readiness game Liander is to assess whether the Liander organization is ready for a major operation in the coming years. This is achieved through a "simulation game" in conjunction with a workshop simulating all business processes and possible eventualities. During the game players experience unexpected events (which can also be found in real life) and have to work together to solve these issues and take appropriate actions that are then reincorporated into the game.

    "MARITIME SPATIAL PLANNING 2050" PC Simulatio

    Responsible for the new User Interface and User Experience design. QA testing and bug reporting.

    2015 

    Project description

    http://atlantisgames.nl/msp-challenge-2050-marine-spatial-planning/nggallery/page/2

    The goal of MSP Challenge 2050 is to give the players more insight in the consequences of making certain decisions in space and time by means of a simulation game. Players have to plan and execute on sea and the coastal area. Within the game the players see the same sea and they can plan within their own (economic) area. Consequences are calculated for the whole sea and are calculated on basis of rules of the “real” world. In the background a simplified food model “Ecopath” is used and a cause/result system which calculates all the influences of the plans. The consequences are visualized by changes on the virtual map and a dashboard with indicators.

    The game is played real-time; the component “time” plays an important role in the game. MSP 2050 is a multi-player serious game which uses the planning process to visualize long term influences/consequences of decisions.

    Atlantis Games BV and all the MSP partners is going to bring more functionality into the game:

    Increase the game experience and interaction; the player gets more and better feedback of the consequences of decisions made. The graphics will give the game more realistic results, are more accessible and more attractive for the player
    Extension of the functionality of the game by implementing a calculation model on basis of an existing fishing model (in future more models will be implemented)

    End 2012 the Technical University of Delft started with the follow up of MSP 2011, a simulation game named Maritime Spacial Planning 2050.

    The past year MSP 2050 has been played several times both national as well as international. Some 25 experts from various countries (France, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, England, Poland, Estland, Belgium, Canada) were very enthusiastic about the game.
