Interview 2

We are designing a public interactive game for people who are waiting for public transportation. This is an anonymous interview for a student project. Would you mind spending a couple of minutes helping us with this interview?


  • Young people tend to play games while they are waiting for the public transportation.
  • Young people focus on the game experience rather than performance records.
  • Young people care little about the location or other priorities.
  • The instrument symbols can be more user-friendly.
