The target audience for this game is those unfamiliar with UCD, yet whose work relates to the definition, creation, and update of a product or service. In other words, everyone involved in the software development process.
The UCD game is structured in 4 sections mimicking a standard user-centered design project: defining the users, analyzing the usersâ€™ characteristics, designing and evaluating the designed artifact. The last station â€“ evaluating the process â€“ requires the participants to look back on the three previous stations and reflect their design process.
The game was developed by three people associated with the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, Spain).
