Prototype v 0.1 and usability test no1
We had our first usability test on 18th , 19th March with one kid and three participants in our group. During usability test we needed to test our first version of tangible Swedish map and game rules which is base on scenario.
All plants and factories were made with different shapes, colour, given cost value and producing/costing different amount of energy. We had to change numbers and values several time to figure out what is the best value. Only cities are fixed on map and there are lots of socket on the map where user can build power plants, and factories.
During usability test each participant try to reach to the goal that given by scenario.First usability test was with a kid and he enjoy the physical layer of the map and game. Only one participant reach to the given goal and others lose the game because lack of money.
