Pervasive games provide a new type of game combining new technologies with the real environment of the players. While this already poses new challenges to the game developer, requirements are even higher for pervasive Augmented Reality games, where the real environment is additionally enhanced by virtual game items. In this paper we will review the technological challenges to be met in order to realize pervasive AR games, show how they go beyond those of other pervasive games, and present how… Expand
Pervasive Mobile Games - A New Mindset for Players and Developers
TLDR
A user study with an experimental pervasive multiplayer mobile game is described to understand how the players perceive pervasiveness in the game and what the crucial factors are in the design. Expand
Pervasive games research: a design aspects-based state of the art report
TLDR
Ten representative pervasive game projects are presented, classified in five genres based on their playing environment and features, and light is shed on current trends, design principles and future directions for pervasive games development. Expand
Guidelines for designing augmented reality games
TLDR
A set of design guidelines which are drawn from experiences of three mixed reality games are presented, providing specific guidance on relationships between real and virtual space, social interaction, use of AR technologies, maintaining consistent themes and implicitly address higher level aspects such as presence within a particular augmented reality place. Expand
Toward Next-Gen Mobile AR Games
TLDR
Two major trends are identified: small, user-modifiable AR games and larger-scale, event-based AR games that are interwoven with their physical environment. Expand
Orchestration and Direction of Mobile MR Games
  • 2007
Mobile Mixed Reality Games are embedded in the physical environment of a user and pose therefore new requirements on design, authoring, orchestration and direction of the game. New supporting toolsExpand
Interoperability standards for pervasive games
TLDR
Developing and adopting standards for interoperability could benefit both developers and users of pervasive games, and facilitate the growth of the genre. Expand
Conquest - Outdoor Based Games Enhanced with Sensors
This paper presents Conquest, a game platform in the class of trans-reality games in pervasive gaming that combines old classical outdoor games that have been introduced in computer games with theExpand
W41K: digitally augmenting traditional game environments
TLDR
A two-step process comprised of game flow virtualization and physical artifact augmentation to create augmented game environments based on existing table top games is suggested. Expand
Design Aspects and Context Awareness in Pervasive Games
TLDR
This chapter follows a systematic approach to explore the landscape of pervasive gaming, defining the four axes of pervasive games design, introducing the concept of game world persistency, and describing aspects of spatially/temporally/socially expanded games. Expand
Pervasive gaming: Status, trends and design principles
TLDR
This paper presents 18 representative pervasive game projects, following a generations-based classification, and sheds light on technological status and trends, design principles, developer guidelines, and research challenges for pervasive games development. Expand

Gaming on the Edge: Using Seams in Pervasive Games
TLDR
How the notion of seamful design can be a source of design ideas for outdoor pervasive games is discussed, to draw lessons for how such games can successfully encourage social interaction between players. Expand
Gaming on the edge: using seams in ubicomp games
TLDR
How the notion of seamful design can be a source of design ideas for ubicomp games is discussed, taking advantage not only of the connectivity within a wireless 'hotspot' but of the lack of connectivity outside it. Expand
ARQuake: the outdoor augmented reality gaming system
TLDR
This work extended an existing desktop game and developed it into the ARQuake system, one of the first systems that allows users to play augmented reality games outdoors—allowing them to move in the physical world, and at the same time experience computer-generated graphical monsters and objects. Expand

TLDR
Challenges of cross media games are addressed and game design, technical, commercial and ethical aspects are pointed out and a gaming scenario illustrates cross media specific game elements and game mechanics are presented. Expand
Capture the flag: mixed-reality social gaming with smart phones
TLDR
The author developed a mobile, mixed-reality version of capture the flag, a popular genre of computer game that explores novel tangible aspects of human physical movement and perception, both in the real-world playing environment and in interaction with the virtual world. Expand
Where on-line meets on the streets: experiences with mobile mixed reality games
TLDR
This work describes two games in which online participants collaborated with mobile participants on the city streets and shows how players exploited (and resolved conflicts between) multiple indications of context including GPS, GPS error, audio talk, ambient audio, timing, local knowledge and trust. Expand
Interweaving mobile games with everyday life
TLDR
It is concluded that seamful design provides a route to creating engaging experiences that are well adapted to their underlying technologies. Expand
Combining multiple gaming interfaces in epidemic menace
TLDR
This paper presents the multiple gaming interfaces of the crossmedia game Epidemic Menace, including a game board station, a mobile assistant and a mobile Augmented Reality system, showing how the different gaming interfaces were used by the players to observe, collaborate and interact within the game.
