County Fair: An Intergenerational Game for Appalachians

Tells the story of a graduate seminar led by professors at the GRID Lab and the Appalachian Rural Health Institute. Five hard-core gamers wrote a white paper to precede a design document for a game called County Fair, to be distributed on a CD-ROM as part of a community health package for diabetics and their families in rural Appalachia. County Fair will be a role-playing Sim for players throughout an extended family to learn how to prevent and manage diabetes via engagement in an entertaining game.


  • Intergenerational Learning session

BrainAge: Breakthrough Intergenerational Learning Game

The game development industry has had a difficult time reaching over-40 adults and, in fact, has long ignored them. Now enters BrainAge, a game for all ages released by Nintendo for its DS handheld device. What can developers learn from this outrageously popular game, and how can this knowledge be applied to make applications more attractive for older and mixed-generation audiences? An expert on aging, games, and technology delivers prescriptives for industry. Karen Riggs, director of the Game Research and Immersive Design Lab at OHIO University, is an avid BrainAger in her spare time.
