Master - Lab - Gamification of ethical dilemmas

Supervisor: Lisa (

In human subjects research, specifically as it pertains to topics such as IT security and privacy, we sometimes come across moral or ethical dilemmas. The attitudes that participants have towards these dilemmas are often multi-faceted, and cannot be easily investigated with traditional surveys.
Thus, the goal of this lab is finding alternative, gamified methods of observing Reactions to ethical dilemmas.

Your task:

The goal of this lab is to design and implement a mod to an easily moddable video game (such as for example “Cities: Skylines“) that confronts players with an ethical dilemma.


Basic programming knowledge. If you have any prior experiences with modding or game design, that would be helpful, but it‘s not a requirement.
