Prepared or Not - Knowledge of horror in horror games (English)
Abstract [en]

This study examines how the knowledge of that a game belongs to the horror genre affects the players gameplay experience and choices in the game. Ten participants were recruited for the study. First, the participants had to fill in a pre-study form to make sure that they were a part of our target group. During the data gathering the participant was informed of what kind of prototype they were about to play, either a horror prototype or a puzzle prototype. Then they proceeded to play the horror prototype. To gather the data, stimulated recall and semi-structured interviews were used. The data was analysed with an EPP-method. No significant connection were found between the play experience or the choices the player made and the type of information given beforehand to the participant. A connection were found between fear and expectations, that could be linked to knowledge of the horror.

Abstract [sv]

I studien utreds hur vetskapen om att ett spel är av skräckgenren påverkar spelarens spelupplevelse och val i spelet. Tio deltagare rekryterades. Deltagarna fick svara på en förundersökning för att säkerställa att de tillhörde målgruppen, sedan informerades de skriftligt att de skulle spela antingen en skräck -eller pusselspelsprototyp. Efter den skriftliga förvarningen fick deltagarna spela en skräckspelsprototyp som utvecklats för datainsamlingen. Stimulerad återkallelse och semistrukturerade intervjuer användes till datainsamling. Datan analyserades med en EPP-analys. Ingen signifikant koppling hittades mellan spelupplevelsen eller val deltagarna gjorde i spelet samt vilken skriftlig information spelarna tagit emot innan speltillfället. Däremot hittades en koppling mellan rädsla och förväntningar som kunde anknyta till vetskap om skräck.
