Secrious Research Project

The SECRIOUS research team presents the Slow Game Jam – a serious game jam on cybersecurity that keeps the creativity and the fun of game jams, but does away with the time pressure and the stress. Instead, we added talks, workshops and group discussion into the mix to create an exciting and innovative game jam experience

SECRIOUS is a multidisciplinary research project which aims to engage new code-citizens in making the security of software code tangible through the design of serious games. SECRIOUS is a collaborative effort across the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (MACS) at Heriot-Watt University (HWU), the School of Simulation and Visualisation (SimVis) at Glasgow School of Art (GSoA) and the Department of Social Anthropology at University of St Andrews (UStA) and is funded by the EPSRC.
