Problème :

How to transmit general informations without disturbing action phases?

Solution :

Use a short but inspiring video introducing context, objectives and interfaces of the Serious Game.

An introduction video can present many aspects of the game before playing interactive phases. This video should be coherent with the game’s world and be enough spectacular - like a movie trailer - to motivate users.

For example, The-Great-Flu starts with a video accompanied with a thriller soundtrack (see picture). In one minute, the video presents the spanish flu (historical context), the role of the user as a world organism figthing against the propagation of new virus (objective). These aspects are illustrated with scenes of emergency (ambulance on the road, over-populated hospitals). Then the video presents the possible actions (close markets or airports, provide masks, ...) and the associated interfaces in the game. Finally, it highlights the final objective : create a vaccine. In one minute, the user perceives the possibilities of the Serious Game without frustration and is motivated to start playing.

The Hollywoodian Introduction must surely be completed with a Tutorial to explain interfaces and rules.
