During the previous few years, a brand new sector of inventive media undefined, specifically critical video games, has began to emerge around the globe. The time period severe video games has develop into extra renowned for instance within the fields of schooling, company, welfare and protection. regardless of this, there was no unmarried definition of great video games. A key query, what the concept that itself skill, has stayed unsolved notwithstanding so much have agreed on a definition that severe video games are video games or game-like interactive structures built with online game know-how and layout rules for a major function except natural entertainment.

In this booklet, critical video games are understood as video games which objective at delivering an enticing, self-reinforcing context during which to encourage and teach the gamers. severe video games could be of any style, use any video game expertise, and be constructed for any platform. they are often interesting, yet often they train the person whatever. The principal target of great video games is to elevate caliber of lifestyles and future health. As a part of interactive media undefined, the intense video games box specializes in designing and utilizing electronic video games for real-life reasons and for the typical lifetime of electorate in info societies. the sector of great video games specializes in such components as schooling, enterprise, welfare, army, site visitors, security, traveling and tourism.

All users (except 2 men), felt that this kind of an application could motivate persons to exercise if it was suggested by the occupational health care personnel. 2 persons felt that they would let the occupational health care follow their exercise frequency, others felt that this would be too much controlling the employees. The application could also be loaded at the occupational health care office for free. Some users felt that if the application was given by the occupational health care it could motivate the persons to exercise sports.

Mobile phones are already our common everyday devices and thus form a suitable basis for these kinds of proactive guides for personal wellness management. In the Exergame project we designed and implemented a location based fitness game which utilises new GPS and cell phone technology. We feel that the HCD approach and the scenario work were fruitful and suitable for this kind of design. Thus, the model of the design process and the results of Exergame project could be utilized in other kinds of designs of playful fitness solutions, also.
