My digital artefact will consist of a text/video blog, which will involve me playing trivia crack to work on unpacking my analytical framework structure.
In order to gain data for my analysis of this game, I am planning on drawing from a range of sources. Firstly, I will gain data from the Trivia Crack website itself. Then, to investigate monetisation further, I will be seeking scholarly sources and articles on monetisation and ad’s, both in general and in gaming.
For induction, I will find articles for getting people to play games. I would potentially look at gaming marketing articles and sources as well, as bringing users to this game involves certain marketing strategies.
To gather data on the audience, I will look at summaries from the company about it’s audience. I will also study a range of reviews of the game, reddit threads and other evidence to extend my knowledge of the game’s users.
As well as all of this, I will also draw on autoethnographic research from my personal experience of playing the game. All of this research will help in forming my final analysis of Trivia Crack.
I briefly outlined my content rollout in my project plan. Here is a more detailed version of my content schedule:
My video blog’s will be aimed at younger people who haven’t played Trivia Crack before, and people who are interested in puzzles, quizzes or trivia. However, my posts will be suitable for just about anyone. They may also be useful for anyone else investigating or curious about trivia crack, to use as a source for their own work or research.
Thank you for reading/listening. Follow along to see me unpack Trivia Crack!
