At the end of May 2022, the second workshop round for the design of the STEP_UP game in Germany was performed. Two volunteers participated in the face-to-face meetings. The volunteers mainly had suggestions regarding the usability, e.g., the selection of languages and that the possibility to choose between characters should be explained more clearly.
The volunteers much appreciated the selection of characters displaying diversity and real-life experiences. The instructions on how to progress and which tasks to fulfil were considered well explained.
For the mini games, the volunteers suggested more explanatory texts, especially for those who are not yet familiar with online or video games.
In summary, the volunteers enjoyed dealing with the game and are looking forward to the alpha version that will allow them to fully play the game.
