The Addictive Click : Engaging and Emotional Idle Games (English)
Abstract [sv]

En ny spelgenre har ökat i popularitet de senaste fem åren. En spelgenre som faller utanför den klassiska definitionen av spel. En spelgenre vid namn ”Idle Games”. Föreliggande studie handlar om vilka element i dessa spel som får spelaren att fortsätta spela och hur elementen kan analyseras med hjälp av MDA och AARRR ramverken. Data har samlats in från tre populära Idle Games vid namn Cookie Clicker, Clicker Heroes och AdVenture Capatalist. En enkät har också skickats till spelarna av dessa spel för att få en uppfattning om varför spelen är populära. Resultaten har sedan analyserats med olika speldesignteorier för att undersöka vilka spelmekaniker som skapar lusten att spela och varför dessa spel är populära.

Abstract [en]

A new game genre has seen increased popularity during the last five years. A game genre that falls outside the classic definition of games. A game genre with the name of “Idle Games”. This study is all about which elements in these games create the drive for the player to continue playing and how the elements can be analyzed with the help of MDA and AARRR frameworks. Data have been collected from three popular idle games with the names of Cookie clicker, Clicker Heros and AdVenture Capatalist. A survey has also been sent to the players of these games in order to get better knowledge of why these games are popular. The result has then been analyzed with different design theories in order to examine which game mechanics create the feel to play and why.
