Virtual reality has been labelled as the gaming technology of the future for its ability to place the player in an immersive game experience. Its expansion has pushed into several subjects, including education. This project recommends ways of improving a virtual reality demonstration game, called Virtual Energy Hero (VEH). VEH’s aim is to increase public awareness on smart energy, smart city, and renewable topics in the city of Winterthur, Switzerland. We conducted expert interviews, workshops, and surveys, with the purpose of gathering information on VEH. By analyzing the available data and responses, our IQP team provided recommendations for the continued improvement and success of the game, such as improved interactivity, optimized knowledge transfer, and extended accessibility of VEH.
