Project description

Pervasive games are games that are situated in the real world, and not bounded by the limits of a screen or a predefined play space. They are often supported by mobile and location-based technology. The project explores pervasive games from a combined design and technology perspective, and has four subareas:

Theory

  • Tools for the development, play, and study of pervasive games
  • Experimental design and development of pervasive games
  • Empiric studies of (commercial and experimental) pervasive games
