Abstract [en]

Despite being a highly profitable industry, very few MMORPGs have managed to find commercial success over the past decades. One commonly identified problem is their near-exclusive reliance on social interaction as a means of attracting and retaining a sustainable player base, and their failure to achieve the network effect required to establish that appeal. This research proposes a complementary approach that leverages emergent narrative in order to diminish the genre’s reliance on social interaction, specifically through the use of persistent player characters to believably populate the game world.

Abstract [sv]

Trots att det är en mycket lönsam industri, har bara några få MMORPGs lyckats hitta kommersiell framgång under de senaste decennierna. Ett allmänt identifierat problem är deras nästintill uteslutande tillit till social interaktion för att locka till sig och behålla en varaktig spelarbas, och deras misslyckande att uppnå nätvärkseffekten som krävs för att skapa denna dragningskraft. Denna forskning föreslår ett kompletterande tillvägagångssätt som utnyttjar emergent narratives för att minska genrens beroende av social interaktion, specifikt genom att använda persistenta karaktärer för att trovärdigt befolka spelvärlden
