Defining Game Mechanics

Research output: Journal Article or Conference Article in JournalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This article defins game mechanics in relation to rules and challenges. Game mechanics are methods invoked by agents for interacting with the game world. I apply this definition to a comparative analysis of the games Rez, Every Extend Extra and Shadow of the Colossus that will show the relevance of a formal definition of game mechanics.
