Smart Artifacts as a Key Component of Pervasive Games

  title={Smart Artifacts as a Key Component of Pervasive Games},
  author={Michał R{\'o}j}
In this paper we present how smart artifacts can become a crucial element in pervasive games. In our vision, ‘magical’ artifacts play two roles: first, they are very attractive game gadgets (such as magic wands), second, they are able to handle the game (implementing the main game logic). We claim that in some cases no infrastructure would be needed to play a game.
