Moodspace – The Forest

Below is the moodspace of our concept serious game: The Forest of Life. It illustrates the dark and confusing start of the game, which during gameplay and progress transforms into a lush and beautiful forest. The glowing orb in the distance represents the clues that you find in the game to help you progress. Characters in the Forest will confront you with questions and dilemmas. The more dilemmas and questions found are answered and elaborated on, the more illumination and growth is found in the game world.

Hi, I’m Sam Boyd, a Dutch guy with an English name. Right now I’m in the first year of the research master Cognitive Science, part of the Artificial Intelligence Master at the VU and UvA. My background only partly connects to this master; my bachelor was in Psychology. Over the course of my bachelor, I found that I was mostly interested in how experimental psychological results are connected to the brain. This is why I specialized in Clinical Neuropsychology. Although I chose a different route for my masters, Clinical Neuropsychology still holds a dear place in my heart. After my Master here at the VU, I’m considering to do the Serious Gaming Master at the UvA. Take a look around to see the progress on a Serious Gaming project, me and two other students are working on!
