Before introducing the exergame design principles, a short overview of the history of fitness games is introduced. 1 Introduction to Game Production User experience design is a central challenge in developing serious games. Therefore we have to ask in solving concrete design tasks the reflective question what is the right form of design processes. Here, we are interested in designing a serious game for late middle aged people using human-centred design tradition. Especially, we are going to focus on designing a fitness game and therefore we logically call attention to the specific problems in designing such games.

O. fi Abstract: This paper discusses the involvement of children in the design of two game-based learning environments, Talarius and Virtual Peatland. The aim of the study was to explore the experiences of both the children and the developers related to the children’s participation in the development process and on the participation activities employed in the projects. The first project, Talarius, indicated that while the children enjoyed the project as a whole, there were problems with providing them with a genuine feeling of ownership and with the children recognizing their contributions in the final outcome.

V. 2009 50 T. Nousiainen Children’s involvement in technology design is heavily based on the principles of user-centred design which is seen by many researchers as a successful approach in software design. The user-centred design cycle (ISO 13407, 1999) implies that users can have an active role in setting the goals, refining them iteratively, and evaluating the outcomes. , Scaife et al. 1997; Nesset and Large 2004). , Nesset and Large 2004). This is emphasized especially in participatory design, a design philosophy based on the ideals of workplace democracy and empowerment.
