The aim of this paper is to present and discuss interesting and inspiring game-design techniques employed in selected games with a purpose. We are interested here in a particular domain of these games’ application – namely science. We consider how particular techniques (like implementing Free2Play mechanics) might influence players’ engagement.

Celem niniejszej pracy jest przedstawienie oraz omówienie interesujących technik projektowania gier, które wykorzystane zostały w grach skierowanych na cel. Omawiane przez nas produkcje zostaną ograniczone do tych używanych w badaniach naukowych. Szczególnie ciekawą kwestię stanowi dla nas wpływ poszczególnych technik (np. implementacji mechanik modelu Free2Play) na zaangażowanie graczy.
