Introduction: An Interaction-Based Simulation

FORMAT-STORE is a Serious Game (SG) in 3d designed in collaboration with the game studio Idées-3Com and the business school ENACO, aimed at training undergraduate students to the management of a convenience store and customer relationship. In FORMAT-STORE, the learner is immersed in a virtual replica of a store populated by artificial customers, so as to practice daily activities of a salesperson. Immersive SG raise specific issues as explained in [3]. An Interaction-Oriented approach such as IODA [2] offers a particularly convenient way to address the multiple problems of such a SG simultaneously.
