Abstract

The ageing process involves physical and cognitive challenges. It is a known fact that (outdoor) physical activity can help to counter these issues and improve the quality of life. One way to motivate older adults doing exercises are serious games. They embody the concept of game-based learning and exercising, and they are designed to solve a problem along with providing and engaging training experience. Based on recent research, we have developed a concept of an outdoor serious game, which has been designed to keep older adults mobile and enhance their cognitive abilities at the same time. We have developed a prototype and evaluated it in a user study with elderly participants. The results show a high acceptance by the test participants, indicating that this kind of game is interesting for the target group. The usability of the prototype has also been evaluated and shows good average scores.
