\end{itemize}

(I think this section needs to be much more detailed since this was the original focus of the framework - the assessment process) - SL\hypertarget{Misc._categories_.28fun.2C_education.2C_technology.2C_etc....29}{}

\subsection{Misc. categories (fun, education, technology, etc...)}
\begin{itemize}
\item  What are measurable variables that can be defined as '\_\_\_\_'?
\begin{itemize}
\item  Can this game teach something that can be gained through other resources in a way that the targeted audience finds preferable? ( I think this is outside of the scope of our group, we are not really studying how best to teach a topic or curriculum, we are studying games.)
\end{itemize}
\item  Do we need to advertise?
\item  How will we launch the game and attract players?
\begin{itemize}
\item  Do we have a captive player group or is the game released in the wild?
\end{itemize}
\item  Can we tweak the game during deployment? Is this a part of the plan?
\end{itemize}\hypertarget{Other_things_to_put_in}{}

\subsection{Other things to put in}

\textit{I've tried incorporating these parts into the framework as much as possible. They've mainly been incorporated into the resources sections-DG}
\begin{itemize}
\item \textbf{Intellectual Property:} What sort of license does it use? Who owns the work? Who published it? What is the intellectual property?
\item \textbf{Time and Money:} How long did it take to make? How much did it cost to develop? What sort of organization developed it?
\item \textbf{Comparison and Competition:} What other games are similar? Who is the competition? How does it compare to other games?
\end{itemize}
