Abstract

This paper presents a work in progress study about effectiveness of interactive gamified material about cultural  differences  versus  passive  media. Usually  this kind of material is distributed in a form of official documents and videos. Usage of humor has spread to these, and comics depicting the humorous differences have also emerged in official and non-official cases. Work presented in this paper adds interactivity and other gameful design  elements  to  the  mix. As the study is work in progress, results at this point include  the description of the prototype and some identified design decisions and elements that could be used when creating this kind of material.
