We present a 3D virtual environment that leverages 3D game dynamics for performing statistical analysis on spatio-temporal (ST) data. We present a theoretical construct, a proof- of-concept implementation (STWorld), and preliminary results from a human-computer interaction (HCI) study. Results include a novel integration of the Unity game engine with mainstream statistical tools including PostGreSQL, R, and the D3.js graphics library. Preliminary HCI results suggest that STWorld may be judged more enjoyable and incur better procedural memory retention than traditional dashboard interfaces. We conclude with findings on gender bias and the gap between gamers and non-gamers.
