Toward a Mobile Platform for Pervasive Games
Emerging pervasive games will be immersed into real-life situations and leverage new types of contextual interactions therein. For instance, a player's punching gesture, running activity, and fast heart rate conditions can be used as the game inputs. Although the contextual interaction is the core building blocks of pervasive games, individual game developers hardly utilize a rich set of interactions within a game play. Most challenging, it is significantly difficult for developers to expect dynamic availability of input devices in real-life, and adapt to the situation without system-level support.
