Blog: From Serious Games to Games for Impact

Dr. A. Czauderna

While the literal meaning of the term “serious games” has been disliked by a lot of game researchers and game designers for many years, it is still most commonly used when it comes to „games with a purpose beyond play“ (Klopfer et al. 2009). However, in the US quite recently the term “games for impact” (respectively “impact games”) came into prominence as an alternative notion. Certainly, the launch of the White House Academic Consortium on Games for Impact played a major role for the recent career of the concept.
