Abstract

Meeting people face-to-face is a difficult task for many people. A mobile game can be the right 'alibi' to help people to start a conversation. This paper describes the game 'Knowing your Sympathy', which was developed with the purpose of knowing or making the first contact with people. The paper also presents the main questions of the study conducted during the evaluation of the game. The study was performed for 2 weeks by 13 participants living in the same or nearby neighborhoods.
