Abstract [en]

The Swedish healthcare industry has been in a crisis and suffered from a lack of staff and high burnout rate for many years. In this thesis we explore the possibility of bringing this to everyones’ attention by developing a serious game, where the player can experience and learn about the issues from within a hospital. Our goal is to provide a way for the player to increase their knowledge on the issues and inspire a desire to participate in the ongoing healthcare debate. Although the ability to promote engagement appears bleak, the results suggest that serious games do have the potential to educate, both on this matter and in general.
