English abstract
We define data games as games where gameplay and/or game content is based on real-world data external to the game, and where gameplay supports the exploration of and learning from this data. This concept is discussed in rela- tion to open data, procedural content generation and serious games, and research challenges are outlined. To illustrate the concept, we present six prototype games and content generators of our own making. We also present a tentative taxonomy of actual and potential data games, and situate the described games within this taxonomy.
