Scientific Discovery Games have shown the potential of involving the general public in scientific research and contributed to scientific discoveries. One example is Foldit, a game where players can help scientists understand proteins. However, for these types of games, onboarding and retaining players often remains a challenge. In this talk, I will discuss work using gameplay data to evaluate design decisions and potentially improve aspects of games that are applied to solving real-world problems.
