We would like to invite you to participate in our study by visiting our lab and playing video games for about 45 minutes while we collect some data. You will be rewarded with a $20 CAD gift card at the end of your participation.

About the project:

This is part of an ongoing research project aimed at understanding the human experience in video games. The project is being undertaken by DISCOVER lab at the University of Ottawa, Canada. The results of this research will pave the way for improving the utilization of games in educational, medical, and entertainment contexts. Your answers will help you reflect better on your gaming experience and ultimately contribute in the general understanding of player engagement in video games.
