초록

본 연구는 현대인의 주요한 시간보내기 수단으로 자리 매김하고 있는 스마트폰 게임행위를 우리나라 대학생을 대상으로 경험적으로 탐색하였다. 스마트폰 게임은 작은 스크린 크기와 정교하지 않은 조작 인터페이스로 인해 컴퓨터 게임에 비해 이용자에게 불편한 게임이다. 이러한 불리한 상황을 극복하기 위하여 스마트폰 게임은 게임 인터페이스 설계에 있어서 간명성으로 대표되는 미니멀리즘적 요소를 도입하고 있다. 본 연구는 스마트폰 게임의 간명 성이 인지적 용이성, 즐거움, 플로우 및 이용의도에 어떠한 영향을 미치는지를 PLS(partial least square) 경로모형분석을 통해 탐색한다. 연구결과를 요약하면, 인지적 용이성-플로우 경로를 제외한 제안된 모든 가설들이 유의한 것으로 나타났다. 이러한 결과는 게임 개발에 있어서 이용자 편의 중심의 인터페이스와 이용자의 경험을 고려할 필요가 있 음을 말해준다. 마지막으로 미래 연구를 위한 함의와 제언을 제시하였다.
