    Abstract

    We demonstrate LOITER-TB, a prototype of a serious game meant to improve the social awareness of police students. Central to its design is the provision of feedback through thought bubbles of virtual characters with which players interact. Our initial experiments provide weak support for our hypothesis that this form of feedback leads to gains in police students’ understanding of social interaction.
