Pathfinders Way is my latest game to be released on the iPad. You can download Pathfinders Way from the Apple App Store.
In Pathfinders Way, you are setting out on an expedition to explore unknown lands. On your adventure, you will map the natural terrain, collect ancient artifacts, and discover hidden items that will assist you in your journey. Each map in Pathfinders Way is randomly generated, ensuring that you will always have new places to explore.
Pathfinders Way is designed for players who love exploration. If you like to explore unfamiliar places, discover hidden surprises, and experiment with different strategies, then you will enjoy Pathfinders Way. In addition, Pathfinders Way gives you the freedom to play as you wish and to pursue your own personal goals. Throughout your career, the Pathfinders Purpose will provide you with information about your personal motivations for playing.

I designed Pathfinders Way to leverage my research on the Gameplay Enjoyment Model (GEM). Specifically, an effort to include the five game features of GEM’s Exploration dimension was made with the goal of increasing the enjoyment that explorers (players who prefer the Exploration features) will experience from the game. Pathfinders Way is the first game that incorporates elements of GEM into its design. This makes for a great opportunitiy to see whether explorers will indeed enjoy a game more that was designed to appeal to their preferences.
