Abstract [en]

This is a study of how games can be used to encourage self-reflection. The study uses Everyday-Social Anxiety to establish a base point from which to make a game. During the study a game was developed using the research found. The game uses mechanics in order to link the player to the games protagonist. This link is then used in an attempt to encourage the player to self-reflect. Known design methods are used as guidelines of how the study and game is made. These methods originate from both game design and design of informative systems (such as servers). Some psychology sources are used in order to gather an understanding of what Social Anxiety is and how it affects people, the focus however, lies on the subject of Media technology and game development. The study concludes with results and a discussion. In the discussion the entirety of the study is motivate and reflected over by the authors. The results are specifically presented in a conclusion, presenting what was done, and what the study led to.
