Signature Games is an interdisciplinary centre of expertise and experience for academic research and professional applications of simulation-gaming, serious gaming and 3D virtual (game) worlds for purposes such as complex policy-making, organizational decision-making, management, learning and training, mainly in the domain of infrastructures.
Signature games is an independent company since 2014. Its roots lie in one of the Netherlands' engineering universities, and date back to around 2002 when a group of young researchers started to develop, use and research advanced games for training, research and intervention.
We have a no-nonsense and evidence-based approach towards games and play.
Our game-based workhops, lectures, key-notes and trainings are highly engaging, but they are also well-founded in established theories and concepts. We constantly assess the effectiveness of what 'we' do, and use the evidence to make more impact. We publish about the results of our projects in peer reviewed academic journals of high standing.
We work internationally and in collaboration with many organizations and persons - at the intersection of many professional disciplines, from game design and entrepreneurship to marine sciences and planning.
During the year we have done a couple of interesting projects with our partners in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Dalian in China.
