The Novel Game Design Lab

Academic department under which the project should be listed

Software Engineering and Game Development

Research Mentor Name

Henrik Warpefelt

Abstract (300 words maximum)

The Novel Game Design Lab studies how we can combine new technology and novel approaches to game design to create new and interesting gaming experiences. For this year’s symposium, we will be exhibiting Relic 2D, a platform for a variety of studies, including studies of engaging minimalist narratives and game play, as well as player performance and accessibility issues. The overall aim of projects done using Relic 2D is to identify techniques and technologies that let developers achieve a high degree of playability and polish with less development time. We will also be showing preliminary work for TechnoWizard, a VR game aimed exploring how we can implement gesture-based interfaces for rhythm games and pushing the boundaries of interaction design for VR. Lastly, we will be exhibiting an arcade cabinet built for data collection and demonstrating games.
