Usability testing of a three-dimensional #library orientation game

3d-library

Games require constant interaction, which makes usability one of the fundamental ele-ments of the game development process. A high level of usability in games developed for educational purposes is important for sustaining the user’s game experience. Orientation is crucial for freshmen at universities. Performing orientation in a three-dimensional virtual and gamified environment enables users to feel like they are in a real environment and to experience an entertaining and sustainable process. With this aim, the Hacettepe University Beytepe Campus Library Orientation Game was designed and created in a three-dimensional virtual environment. This study conducted two different usability studies of the three-dimensional library orientation game based on user participation. We first asked users to fill out a survey after their gaming experience to collect their subjective data. In the second, a usability evaluation was done to collect objective data based on the users’ eye tracking. This study presents the results of these two approaches.
