Milad Soroush at CHI Play 2018 on games for self-control improvement

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Milad Soroush, GI Resident and PhD student in the department of Management Sciences, will be presenting his paper entitled  "Investigating game mechanics that target players' self-control while maintaining engagement" at CHI Play 2018.

Soroush researches how games can be used as interventions for self-control improvement. In this study, he ran participants through a game he created called "Save the Garden" and then asked them to complete a questionnaire.

"Save the Garden" was designed to test how participants perform in interactive, long-term game tasks that challenge their self-control. Performances were then compared with the subsequent questionnaire that looked at self-reports on perceived competence, enjoyment, and trait self-control.

Soroush will discuss his findings on game performance and player experience with the audience at CHI Play 2018 in Melbourne, Austrialia. This study is a part of Soroush's ongoing research.
