Serious games can be a supplement to early intervention and treatment of school refusal. In this work-in-progress, we report on findings from an evaluation session in which teenagers gave detailed feedback on Gnist (English: Spark), a serious game for treatment of school refusal. Our contribution is an empirical review of the teenager' opinions about the proposed game elements to overcome school refusal and their recommendations for future development as well as promoting school refusal on the design agenda.
