Games of Foods

The Games of Foods project is set to increase knowledge and awareness of balanced nutrition and a healthy lifestyle through the design and application of escape games. 

The Games of Foods project is set to increase knowledge and awareness of balanced nutrition and a healthy lifestyle through the design and application of escape games. It delivers a novel conceptual model and practical examples of how to generate informative and exciting activities on food quality and nutrition to positively influence consumers' behavior toward healthier diets. The project focus on escape games.

Our outcomes will provide an operative and effective methodology for developing state-of-the-art escape games for the use of schools, museums, and game companies. Supportive material, like card game, enforces learning later on. The games will convey educational, social, and environmental messages in a fun and inspiring way. In the modern hectic society gaminification is a more engaging way of learning than traditional school class or reading. The project will play a central role in communicating information about smart food choices to increase public knowledge and involvement.
