In GOAL we are stimulating healthy behavior through gaming, targeting an elderly user group, but eventually building a platform that is attractive for all types of users. In short we are combining gaming and motivational aspects. In this part we will address the questions: what is the right game for each individual user? and what is the right motivation strategy for each user?
